You don't have to be a WWE fan to know who Natalie Eva Marie is. The first female WWE star to cross over into film full-time, she's appeared in cameo roles in Entourage, CSI: New York, and 90210, and most recently wrapped Action #1 for YouTube Red. Next up, she'll appear in the movie Inconceivable, alongside Nicolas Cage and Faye Dunaway.
Before she began acting, though, it was all about wrestling—meaning Natalie is no stranger to the gym hustle. If you're one of her near-4-million followers on Instagram, you know she still makes it a priority to sweat day-in and day-out. Her can't-miss gym essential? A killer playlist. (Also: Tips on how to put together an epic workout playlist.)
"Music is everything to me," she says. "When I have a solid playlist, my workouts hit hard! I have had those moments where I have showed up to the gym only to realize I forgot my headphones and I think, 'okay this isn't going to work.'"
That's why Natalie shared her favorite rise-and-grind playlist exclusively with Fitness—she gets how much not having one can suck, and this way you can steal her get-psyched-and-sweaty tunes featuring everyone from Big Sean to Kanye West and Beyoncé. (Only want Queen Bey? Try this workout playlist.) The two she currently has on repeat: "Moment For Life" by Nicki Minaj and "Can't C Me" by 2Pac. "It doesn't matter how I'm feeling or where I am, if you put those on, I'm ready to get to work," she says.
