The Ultimate Playlist: Songs That Will Supercharge Your WOD

Written By Charleh Knighton  |  CrossFit 

As a 1-on-1 WODprep athlete training for the Semi-Finals, I dedicate 2-3 hours to my daily gym sessions, and music plays an undeniably vital role in my training routine.

 Spotify, among other platforms, is a true blessing. I currently have 5 playlists on rotation, catering for every moods and workout intention.

Need a boost for a personal record attempt? Cue the PR playlist

Seeking that extra push? My high-energy EDM playlist does the trick

Craving some me time? The Disney soundtracks playlist is my go-to choice

And the list goes on...

Over the years, I've relied on these playlists extensively, to the point of hearing them countless times and, you’ve guessed it, I’m super bored of them.

If you, too, have logged over 85,000 minutes on your playlist in the past year, then this article is poised to introduce a breath of fresh musical inspiration.

So, I reached out to the WODprep team and coaches, curious to learn about their favorite songs.

Here's what we discovered.
