Ever come across an instructor whose playlists for class are so good, you think he or she could definitely start a side hustle DJing—or at least give you access to their Spotify account? Barry’s Bootcamp CEO (and Well+Good Council member) Joey Gonzalez is one of those gifted trainers who somehow manages to always find the *one* song that’ll make you want to lift a little heavier or sprint a little faster. Here, he shares a downloadable playlist and explains how he picks the perfect soundtrack to your sweat sesh.

The number-one rule when creating a workout playlist: Pick songs that motivate you. Some people are more inspired by lyrics, others by rhythm. And similarly, what are you doing during the workout: Are you running? Are you doing high-intensity interval training?

Once you find the beats that get you moving, you’re halfway there.

When I’m preparing a playlist, I’m creating the workout to go along with the music. So, if I plan to run on the treadmill for 12 minutes, I’ll put together four separate three-minute tracks to go along with it. I choose songs that’ll help me (or my clients) get through that exercise. For example, if it’s a 20-minute HIIT session where you’re sprinting, whether on a bike or a treadmill—whatever you’re on—try and pick songs that really get you going. Once you find the beats that get you moving, you’re halfway there.

Here are 9 tracks from my personal playlist that are motivating me right now.
