Tuesday Ten: My Favorite Workout Mix


Nothing makes a workout fly by like fun, upbeat music. That’s why I enlisted my friend, DJ Jilly Hendrix, to put together a workout mix for me. I want to share it with all of you since I get a lot of requests about the music I listen to! So without further ado, here is DJ Jilly’s workout mix:

  1. Adrian Lux – Teenage Crime
  2. He is We – Pardon Me (Go Periscope Remix)
  3. Lady Gaga – Electric Chapel (Two Door Cinema Club Remix)
  4. Juveniles – Hard Working Girl
  5. Flo Rida – Good Feeling
  6. Yelle – Que Veux Tu (Madeon Remix)
  7. Friendly Fires – Hurting
  8. Carousel – The Thrill
  9. Drake feat. Rihanna – Take Care
  10. SBTKRT feat. Roses Gabor – Pharaohs


What are your 5 favorite songs to work out to?

XO Lauren
