​10 Workout Songs To Sweat Your Booty Off To

​10 Workout Songs To Sweat Your Booty Off To

Whether your pumping iron or getting your steps in, these tunes will have you energized and motivated to conquer your workout.


You're tired. You have too much to do. You don't have time. These are all excuses we give ourselves for avoiding the gym, but something as simple as blasting high-energy music could be the cure to laziness.

If your workout playlist just isn't doing the trick to get you excited anymore, these songs sure will.

1. "Heads Will Roll (A-Trak Remix)" by Yeah Yeah Yeahs & A-Trak


You may look like the passed out boy in the album cover by the end of your workout (minus the Red Solo Cups of course), but the Yeah Yeah Yeahs knew what they were doing when they made this electrifying jam.

2. "We Rise" by San Holo


It's no surprise as to why San Holo is so well-known in the EDM community. This song's uplifting words give you the extra push you need to reach your goals in the gym.

3. "Pursuit of Happiness (Steve Aoki Dance Remix)" by Kid Cudi, MGMT, Ratatat & Steve Aoki


Project X is a movie more commonly known for its comedic party storyline, but its soundtrack is ideal for a sweat session. Steve Aoki's dance remix is definitely a go-to for your workout playlist.

4. "Fried Noodles (Getter Remix)" by Pink Guy & Getter


This song has an EDM festival vibe with a fast-paced beat that will have you running faster than your usual speedy mall walk.

5. "Disco Tits" by Tove Lo


Tove Lo could not have made a more perfect anthem for the gym. She'll have you truthfully singing: "I'm sweat from head to toe, I'm wet through all my clothes," by the end of your reps.

6. "When I Get There" by Big Wild


When you're 42 seconds in, you'll already begin to experience a boost of energy from this wordless, groovy track. Listening to this song during cardio is a must for keeping you moving.

7. "Life In Grey" by Point Point


Whether it's dancing alone in your room or jogging around a track, this song will make you feel like sweating your booty off.

8. "Chateau" by Blackbear


Blackbear had us all in love in 2015 when his 10-song album "Deadroses" debuted. Since then, his music has evolved to be more up-beat in a way that makes you want to finally roll out of bed and hit the gym.

9. "I Love You" by Axwell /\ Ingrosso & Kid Ink 


A mixture of pop and dance music, "I Love You" is a great addition to your power workout playlist.

10. "Colors - Audien Remix" by Halsey & Audien 


When Halsey produced "Colors" in 2015, we swooned. When Audien remixed this track a year later, we sweat.

Everything You Will Miss If You Commit Suicide

The world needs you.

You won't see the sunrise or have your favorite breakfast in the morning.

Instead, your family will mourn the sunrise because it means another day without you.

You will never stay up late talking to your friends or have a bonfire on a summer night.

You won't laugh until you cry again, or dance around and be silly.

You won't go on another adventure. You won't drive around under the moonlight and stars.

They'll miss you. They'll cry.

You won't fight with your siblings only to make up minutes later and laugh about it.

You won't get to interrogate your sister's fiancé when the time comes.

You won't be there to wipe away your mother's tears when she finds out that you're gone.

You won't be able to hug the ones that love you while they're waiting to wake up from the nightmare that had become their reality.

You won't be at your grandparents funeral, speaking about the good things they did in their life.

Instead, they will be at yours.

You won't find your purpose in life, the love of your life, get married or raise a family.

You won't celebrate another Christmas, Easter or birthday.

You won't turn another year older.

You will never see the places you've always dreamed of seeing.

You will not allow yourself the opportunity to get help.

This will be the last sunset you see.

You'll never see the sky change from a bright blue to purples, pinks, oranges, and yellows meshing together over the landscape again.

If the light has left your eyes and all you see is the darkness, know that it can get better. Let yourself get better.

This is what you will miss if you leave the world today.

This is who will care about you when you are gone.

You can change lives. But I hope it's not at the expense of yours.

We care. People care.

Don't let today be the end.

You don't have to live forever sad. You can be happy. It's not wrong to ask for help.

Thank you for staying. Thank you for fighting.

Suicide is a real problem that no one wants to talk about. I'm sure you're no different. But we need to talk about it. There is no difference between being suicidal and committing suicide. If someone tells you they want to kill themselves, do not think they won't do it. Do not just tell them, “Oh you'll be fine." Because when they aren't, you will wonder what you could have done to help. Sit with them however long you need to and tell them it will get better. Talk to them about their problems and tell them there is help. Be the help. Get them assistance. Remind them of all the things they will miss in life.

If you or someone you know is experiencing suicidal thoughts, call the National Suicide Prevention Hotline — 1-800-273-8255

The Truth About Coachella: My Experience

Because all those Instagram posts you've been seeing don't exactly capture the whole picture.


Whether I was ready or not, Weekend 1 of Coachella came around like an overwhelming tornado ready to snatch up bodies and throw them into the desert dust. It was my first time going to Coachella, or even Palm Springs. I was in for quite the ride.

Let me start by saying I was not prepared for this weekend at all. I knew who I was going with, I had my ticket, we had a place to stay, but I had very little understanding of what the heck was going on or how to survive this event.

Day 1 started out exciting. My friends and I got ready fairly quickly, and boy did we look good (no shame).

It was when I walked outside in the sun I understood this experience would be a struggle.

IT WAS SO HOT. So, so hot. I made sure to consistently sip on a water. I wasn't going to let dehydration ruin this weekend for me. Dehydration has no room in an event where the tickets are $500.

We walked down our street to order a Lyft.

The Lyft driver was kind enough to drop us off as close as possible to the nearest security check. We got in line, separated by boys and girls, so that no one felt uncomfortable being patted down.

Waiting in line is never very fun, but our excitement to get into the festival carried us over. Unfortunately, the line was just the beginning. We had to walk so much further (in the heat) to get to yet ANOTHER security checkpoint. I was not feeling this whole festival thing by the third line I had to wait in, in order to get in.

Finally, we got in right as one of our favorite artists was playing at the stage closest to the entrance. Upon entering the campgrounds, it took about 0.2 seconds for me to realize every human at this damn festival looks the exact same.

Girls wore the same black hat with the same sunglasses and wavy pants. Boys wore jerseys, bandanas, Hawaiian shirts, and camel backs. Everyone seriously looked the same. It was pretty funny.

In the festival, we saw a bunch of amazing artists. I was impressed with every set I saw. It was in the moments I was watching the performances that I understood the whole appeal of these festivals.

It was after the party was over, though (catch that Billie reference, cool people), that this appeal completely disappeared for me.

My squad regrouped at the last set of the night to head on out together. We followed the mass crowds out of the festival onto a pathway we believed would take us to an Uber.

My feet were so blistered I had to keep taking my shoes off, but eventually a gravel road forced me to put them back on. My feet started bleeding. So did my soul.

We walked all the way to a parking lot when we were informed by staff that the Uber pickup was all the way on the other side. Of the whole festival. I am not kidding.

Our group of five girls was not doing well. We managed to walk all the way back, but we were so sober and so in pain. We were then told to follow a different crowd down a different path.

Once we did so, we were formed that we had gone the wrong way YET AGAIN. At this point, I was soooo over this Coachella shit.

Let me out of the damn festival!!

We ended up catching a free ride on a bike carrier to a place where we could order a Lyft.

Oh, and I forgot to mention at this point in the night it was freezing. The heat became an intense cold, and I got to say, the wind really made me realize I would rather be dehydrated in the heat then be lost at this festival in the cold.

That night, I was pretty disappointed with the organization of the music festival. Seriously, what the hell? Why didn't any workers know the correct way out?

I went to bed thinking I would never return to another Coachella.

Saturday, made up for that. The artists we saw, once again, were absolutely amazing. We understood the distance and time it would take to get in… and get out. We ended up staying to the very end of the festival and took shuttles to a hotel, where we easily obtained an Uber. Thank God!!

If it hadn't been for Bazzi, Juice Wrld, Billie Eilish, Tame Impala, and Kid Cudi, I would definitely not go back to Coachella next year. But the music of Coachella is some powerful shit, and you never realize how beautiful it is to see your favorite artists in person until you actually do with thousands of other drunk humans.

Like Billie told the audience, "We only have this moment right here, right now. Let's enjoy it."

Here's the truth about Coachella: It's a pain in the ass. But it's so worth it. You should definitely plan ahead as much as you can, but remember the best part of the experience will always be the performances that keep you in the moment.
