Working Out with Glee

Lately, music has been dominating my days. I just have that urge to listen to tunes all the time, whether I’m in the shower, at work or pumpin’ iron. I find myself often tuning Pandora to my Glee channel (my co-workers might be getting irritated), especially because I’m still so happy with all of the Golden Globes that the Glee cast went home with Sunday!

Before I headed to the gym today I created a Glee playlist to see if they could keep me moving during my entire sweat session. Turns out, they can! The medley of songs I put together were a great concoction of fast, upbeat tunes to push me, and a few slower ones to let me recuperate.

Turns out I’m not the only one who wants to sweat it to Glee, either. If you’re in NYC, check out the Glee workout at Crunch Fitness. The instructor, Carol Johnson, dresses up as one of the characters every week and the class dances — and sings! — to the songs in a week’s episode. I can’t wait to check it out!

Below is the playlist of Glee songs I used — enough for about an hour-long workout. The mashups turned out to be my favorite, just like they are when I watch the show. I’m going to keep mixing and matching though, and I’ll keep you posted whenever I make good changes!

If you’re not as big of a Gleek as I am but still like the songs I chose, I also included links to the regular artists of each song. Enjoy!
