Planning a workout can sometimes be as daunting as the workout itself. Once you have a good handle on the specific goals you want to achieve, what parts of your body you want to target, and how much time you want to dedicate to your fitness plan, it feels like you've already won half the battle. But that motivation can quickly fizzle once you start to actively implement your new fitness regiment into your daily schedule. So, for those days when you need that extra bit of motivation to get off the couch, into workout clothes, and out the door, we recommend music - specifically, workout playlists.

Music has always helped me power through a workout, and the playlist I choose depends on the mood I'm in. Do I want to feel like I'm at an EDM rave while trying to hit a new PR, or am I craving the comforting nostalgia of some early 2000s anthems as I run?

While my music choices differ day by day, the one thing my playlists have in common is a fantastic name. It really does make a difference: I get a feeling of satisfaction when I see a playlist name that perfectly encapsulates my mood of the day. Whether you want a workout-playlist name that will inspire you, make you laugh, or call you out, check out the creative ideas below.
