With these insanely cold temperatures in Toronto, many runners have been taking their workouts indoors to hammer them out on the treadmill. For some, running indoors can be very boring. Last week I shared three of my favourite hill workouts on a treadmill with Huffington Post. These are workouts I actually do when I can’t get outdoors and need to sneak one in. Read the article here. For me, having a running program that prompts you to add speed or incline regularly can make some of the time pass more quickly by being alert to the time on the machine. Another great way is awesome music. Here are three songs to motivate you to move faster while running on a treadmill.

Tribe Tunes: January 6
The start of a new year means the gym is filled with folks looking to turn over a new leaf, get active, and live a healthy lifestyle.The energy is contagious and the potential is infinite. It really is one of my favourite fitness times of the year. So many goals just waiting to be crushed!
For today’s Tribe Tunes Tuesday, here are three of my favourite songs to get a cardio sweat on to right now!
Afrojack and Steve Aoki featuring Miss Palmer – No Beef
I love this track for the fast cardio beat. It’s perfect for a HIIT (20 seconds of high cardio followed by 10 second recover x8). Start your HIIT at 1:21 when the beat has a huge drop – you’ll know when it happens.
Iggy Azalea Ft. Charli XCX- Fancy (WoodysProduce Remix)
A nice slow beat for strength training. Way to often we (and I mean I) go way to fast through my sets, so something with a slow and strong count is perfect for curling those biceps or as Iggy says, dropping it low (into a squat 😉 ).
Tove Lo – Habits (Stay High) – Hippie Sabotage Remix
Stretch it out! This is always an area of need for my personal workouts. I get in and out and never take the time to stretch. I’m loving this song to wrap up my workout, so hope it will inspire you to slow down too!
