Even POTUS needs a good groove to get into #beastmode.
It’s no secret that President Barack Obama loves to stay active – he’s known to start his day with a 45-minute sweat. Now you can pop your headphones in and listen to exactly what gets him in the mood to hit the gym with his most recent workout playlist, which he shared in the November issue of Wired.
And no surprise here, the president isn’t like a regular dad. He’s a cool dad. The top jam on his playlist? None other than Beyonce’s “Get Me Bodied.”
The Black Eyed Peas’ adult contemporary jam “Let’s Get It Started” is another. Maybe POTUS likes to settle into a long run when Bob Marley’s “Could You Be Loved?” comes on? The song has a slightly calmer tempo in comparison to the others on the list, but it’s cheery nonetheless.
President Obama also works out to...Sting, which is a little funny, but hey! Whatever gets your blood pumping, Dad.
This isn’t the first time Obama shared his favorite workout tracks with the nation. His 2016 summer playlist, also available on Spotify, was just as upbeat, with songs from Stevie Wonder and No Doubt.
It just adds to the feelings of nostalgia we’re getting at the end of his presidency. We remember when he first shared his favorite iPod tracks as a presidential hopeful in 2008.
But don’t cry yet; just workout like POTUS. Research shows it’s what the most successful people do first thing in the morning, anyway.
