We've just entered a New Year, and there's no better time to turn things around than now. If you're on the heavier side, now is the time to slim down and bulk up. And if you're a bit on the skinny side, well, you know what to do. In fact, you've always had!
All we're trying to say is that it's never too late to change your body for the better. And our goal is to prove that to you for the whole month of January. Don't lose hope, bros. We're here to help you out!
Yesterday, we gave you Part One of our 2015 #balikalindog playlist, which was made by Spotify to beef up your Cardio Dancing and CrossFit experience. Today, however, the songs we're about to recommend are perfect for those who are into two of the most intense fitness trends we know: Insanity and Tabata.
Are you ready to take things to the next level? Scroll down to check them out!
