Ease into your workout with this laid-back tune. The beat that comes in during the chorus makes it super fun to swim to.
Kick things up with Beyoncé. The climbing key changes towards the end of this song will push you to keep going!
This song is so motivating! Tell yourself you can do anything; “I can lift a car up all by myself!”
A classic song for any workout playlist. At this point in your workout, you probably need a reminder to work “harder, better, faster, stronger!”
Coldplay is typically pretty mellow, but the “Seeb Remix” version of this song is a little more uptempo with a cool, driving beat. It’s a great pick-me-up song for the middle of your workout!
This is another great song to help get through hardest part of your workout. Hearing Ryan Tedder sing “Here comes the fighter, this one’s a fighter,” will motivate you to keep fighting and keep swimming.
Finally, slow your pace and do some cool-down laps to “Swim Good” by Frank Ocean. Perhaps the most appropriate song for swimming on this list, you’ll feel great having finished your workout and knowing that you can “swim good.”
That’s my summer playlist for swimming! It’s really just a starting point. I highly recommend adding or swapping out your own favorite songs to create your perfect personalized swimming playlist for these last few weeks of summer. Feel free to share your own ideas of good songs for swimming in the comments!
Johnny found a love for swimming a little later in life. He really didn't know how to swim too well when he first started...
