Check out FitnessMagazine’s #GetFitParty playlist on Vevo.com!

It’s a #GetFitParty all month long for our FITNESS followers and we’ve got the perfect motivation for your workouts this weekend: Hot music videos that are fun to sweat to!

Our Instagram challenge this week has been for you to show us your “workout view,” i.e. what you see while you exercise…and we noticed quite a lot of you are working out at home. We teamed up with Vevo, the world’s leading music video platform, to create this playlist of FITNESS editor-selected videos to watch while you’re planking, squatting, or just going nuts on the treadmill. Enjoy!

We put together a playlist of Crow’s top hits, including her latest single, “Easy.” Plug into her current songs with a healthy dose of the classics, and get ready for a totally blissed-out Monday.

Talk about an impressive guy: Olympian silver medalist hurdler Kerron Clement also holds the indoor world record for the 400-meter sprint, is ridiculously handsome (what? we’re all mostly girls here), and is even nice enough to share his personal playlist with us! He’s also combines some spirituality in his sports too: “Sometimes listening to gospel music for me puts me ‘in a zone’ before training or competing,” Kerron says. Interesting!

Bonus: After the songs, we reveal a little more inside dish on 26 year-old Trinidadian-born Kerron.

Interesting Notes Kerron Told Us: 

Q: Off the topic of playlists…what do you think makes you such a successful athlete?
KC: My will to overcome many obstacles in my sport truly fuels me to be the best. I’m determined to excel at everything that I do.

Q: Do you have a mantra and if so, what is it?
KC: “Make it happen.”

Q: What is your immediate goal in your sports career? What about down the road?
KC: My goal is to be both the Olympic Champion in the 400-meter hurdles and world record holder in that event. Down the road, I’ll take it one step at a time.

Q: Are you single? If yes, do you prefer girls who run?
KC: I’m single, but I don’t prefer a girl who runs—just someone who loves to stay in shape. Fitness is key to a healthy lifestyle.

Being healthy isn’t all about getting energized for a workout; taking a break to relax is just as good for you, too. So when we found out that last Monday was “National Relaxation Day,” we asked our Twitter followers for the tunes that help them unwind. Play these songs to help you snooze soundly tonight or for a welcomed break in your busy workday.

Tell us: What relaxing songs are on your cool down playlist?
