Ever noticed that a mood-boosting playlist can impact your workout just as much as wearing the right gear? Sure, not listening to music won’t impact your health as much as going barefoot on a long-distance run would, but it can influence how much energy you put into your session and therefore how much you get out of it.

Not only will a good tune put you in the right mood to move, but it can help you set the pace for your workout. You might think that having soothing meditation instrumentals play during your HIIT class would keep your mind clear and focused, but if your goal is to work harder, then a more upbeat tune will actually boost your energy levels and get you pumped. The same goes for having fast tempo songs play during a Pilates session – the music can make you want to speed through each step instead of focus on slow, controlled movements.

This isn’t exactly ground-breaking news – most gyms have a good selection of high-energy songs playing on repeat – but if you’re looking for optimal results, tailor your playlist for your training. Test the theory with a 60-minute walking playlist and take on THE ICONIC SPORT Challenge set by Lorna Jane. Why not start with our top workout tunes?

The perfect track to kick off your playlist, Dancing on My Own starts quite slow so you can ease into your session and not burn out too quickly. Throw on Lorna Jane's It’s A Wrap Sleeveless Jacket with your pink Flawless Sports Bra and Get Sporty Core A/B tights you’re ready for a fun workout.

Once you’ve warmed up, this song will definitely keep you going. Energetic and repetitive, this ‘80s beat will literally have you pumped for anything. Patterned co-ords like the Senorita Sports Bra and Core Full Length Tights are the perfect match for this tune.

Sneak this classic track into the middle of your workout playlist to shake things up. The intense guitar riffs will keep you on your toes, plus the title ties in perfectly with khaki-coloured activewear like the Alexa Sports Bra and Darcy Long Sleeved Top.

A bouncy track like this will have you walking with as much attitude as the bad gal herself. Add it towards the end of your playlist to give you that added boost of confidence and get you through the last few steps of your workout. A cool jacket and speed-striped track pants will have you looking the part.

If you just want a steady pace to walk to for the full 60-minutes, then this is the track to play on repeat. The beat is easy to keep up with, especially if you’re just starting out, but not so slow that you won’t work up a sweat. Make it your Sunday morning jam and walk to brunch wearing relaxed lifestyle pieces like the Luxury Jacket and Love Tank.
