This playlist is dedicated to my rockstar friend, Fran from HeyFranHey. She tweeted that she needed new workout music. As a fitness instructor and music junkie, I create playlists on the regular. (And in my sleep.) Inspired by Fran’s personality, I decided to create an upbeat playlist. Each song will put you in a good place. You’ll want to dance, smile, or kiss somebody on the face.

Because I fancy killing two birds with one stone, these tunes are also workout appropriate. If you feel inclined to do hills sprints or burpees, I’m fine with that.

@Nomi!!! Hi. Thanks for trying out my cycle class. I think the song you want is “Na Na Na” by Dacav.

Hi Angel!

I am so happy to have met you, and to have found your blog. I LOVE this song!

Also, yesterday you played a song at Revolve (body ride) that I have been trying to find. The percussion sounded like marching band drums, and the song was one of the first that you played. My google search of “upbeat song with a marching beat” clearly has gotten me nowhere. I know my explanation is vague, but I can’t remember any of the words! Does this ring a bell? Thanks!

You never fail to amaze me. I never heard this song – it is so cool and yes now I feel HAPPY!!!! It reminds me of a song from The Princess and the Frog. Macaih would LOVE this song.
