Valentine’s Day is rapidly approaching, and February is American Heart Month: two good reasons to download our Valentine’s Day Heart-Thumping Cardio Playlist!
Instead of traditional love songs, we opted for favorites that feature heart or love in the title (or band name!) and have a relatively high BPM count (beats per minute) to get your body moving and your heart rate jumping. (Go doubletime on those in the 90BPM range— runners in particular benefit from a stride rate around 180 steps per minute.)
Listen to and keep up with the beat of these tunes for a workout that will keep your motivation high and your heart strong.
We’ve included an easy-to-add playlist for Spotify users; titles and BPM count are listed at the end.
Koss’ female designers teamed-up with Gold Medalist Dara Torres to create the world’s first headphones designed specifically for women, by women. FitBuds are 33% smaller than any earbud Koss has ever created, and FitClips just do not fall out. Both styles are sweat resistant and come with three different sizes of ear cushions for the perfect fit.
All models and all colors are available now at Walgreens for only $19.99, for a limited time! Just as easy as picking up chocolates or a plush animal— paired with this playlist, it’s an awesomely thoughtful and healthy gift that every fit girl will love.
