Looking for power walking music recommendations? If you can walk a mile
in 16 minutes or less, you can consider yourself a power walker! At this
pace, you’ll need songs that are 137 beats per minute or faster.
Songs at this tempo will keep your energy level high and help you to maintain your pace. Below you'll find some recommended songs so you can create a great playlist. You can download them at your favorite music downloading site.
You can also do a little research on your own to find out what songs fall within the 137 or more beats per minute. It's not always easy to find but with a little help from Google, it can be done. I've done a lot of that work for you and found several songs that are 137 or more beats per minute. They are listed below.
Another option is to download an entire album
designed for power walking. They've taken hit songs and remastered them
to fit within the 137 plus beats per minute range.
This playlist has everything from Dire Straits to Taylor Swift. It's a great mix of music genres and artists. Each song is at least 137 beats per minute which will help keep you on track to complete a 16-minute mile.
There are also many songs that you can download that have been remastered to match a 137+ beats per minute tempo. So if some of your favorite tunes aren't fast enough, you can always get the remastered version. Here are some ideas.
Listening to your favorite songs while walking will give you a boost
of energy. It will also make the time go by quicker. That’s because
listening to music you enjoy is fun!
You can make your own playlist of power walking music using the songs that are already downloaded onto your smart phone. Download an app called Tempo Pro and it will automatically change the beats per minute of your songs. Choose 137 beats per minute or faster to stay in the power walking range.
It can be really easy to get caught up in your music as you walk so I want to throw out a word of caution; always keep your music low enough so that you are aware of your surroundings. You need to be able to hear any cars, people or animals around you.
Now that you have your favorite songs, you’re ready to add some fun to your walking!
