I know I can’t be the only one out there whose pants feel a little snugger after a turkey dinner or two (or three). To get your booty in ship shape, well, voila! Even Pandora’s Lady Gaga station can’t compete with these tracks. 

I like to start things off with a steady and slow pace—Rome wasn’t built in a day, you know. Yeah Yeah Yeah’s head bumping “Zero” ain’t a bad place to start. 

After a few minutes of warming up to that midtempo jam, it’s time to kick it up a notch—cue Janelle Monáe ft. Big Boi with “Tightrope,” an addictive and rattling R&B dance track that’ll get your feet flying. Bonus: The sick dance moves in the video are sure to inspire you to go work it out!

Starting to lose steam? Time for an inspiring song! Vampire Weekend’s “Run” is a sparkly, horn filled and electronic rock song that has always given me the strength to swipe the sweat off my forehead and take on that last hill. Like the song says, “with a little powered radio, we could try!” 

Not a big fan of the gym? Who cares! Grab a jumpsuit and dance to these tracks in your living room—you’ll look fly no matter what, babes!
