Create a Fitness “Play” List

Workout Playlist [1]Maybe it’s cabin fever, or perhaps it’s just all those Girl Scout cookies, but I’m ready for something new in my fitness routine. Aren’t you?

Like many people, I made a resolution to lose weight [2], and I’ve been keeping up my end of the bargain I made with myself to work out for at least 30 minutes, five days a week. Now I’m ready for something new [3]: a new challenge, a different routine, a never-tried-that-before workout.

To keep things playful and motivating, I decided to create a “play” list. The idea was inspired by a cool feature I discovered on Gaiam TV [4]: the “Add to Playlist” button. This feature makes it so easy to plan your weekly workouts!

How to create a playlist:

  1. Click on a video;
  2. Click the “Add to Playlist” button near the image OR
  3. Click “Add” if it’s a video with multiple workout options.

Access your list by using the drop-down menu by your login name in the top-right corner of the page. You can change the order of your playlist using the drag-and-drop icon to the left of each title — just be sure to click the “save order” button at the bottom of your list. Try it!

Here’s a playlist I created for a week of cardio and stretching — including stretching myself out of my comfort zone!

Monday

Morning Kundalini [5] (20:29)

Rhythmica Dance Cardio Party [6]: Latin Dance Mix (19:29)

Tuesday

Jillian Michaels Ripped in 30 [7]: Week 1 (34:51)

Wednesday

The FIRM Calorie Explosion [8]: Intro and Warm Up (5:34)

The FIRM Calorie Explosion [8]: Explosive Power Moves (12:09)

The FIRM Calorie Explosion [8]: Cardio KickBoxing (12:11)

The FIRM Calorie Explosion [8]: Cool Down (3:12)

Thursday

Yoga for Runners [9] (58:44)

Friday

Walk, Sculpt & Tone [10]: 30-Minute Workout (33:20)

Saturday

Daily Meditation [11]: A.M. Meditation (26:52)

Sunday

Day off — plan next week’s “play” list!

Now it’s your turn: What would be on your “play” list? What new exercise do you want to try? Are there any classes you wish were offered on GaiamTV.com? Do you like to plan your workouts in advance or do you prefer to decide in the moment? How do you like to play?
