About this Challenge

Although we missed out on a bunch of sweltering beach days, moonlit swims by the pool, and cookouts with friends, many of us are working towards strengthening our bodies and building our endurance for next summer's activities. As always, music is there to keep us motivated and focused!

We want to hear what your workout playlist sounds like—whether it's Hip-Hop, Heavy Metal, Afro-Beat, R&B, Country, or Electronic Music, there's always something you can play to get you through that intense hour. Enter the Workout Playlist Challenge by sharing your ideal exercise playlist. Embed it in a Vocal story and tell us more about your current soundtrack— why do these songs inspire you to keep moving? Or are there any new songs that help you push through that extra mile? Whatever it is, we want to hear it! You've got one week to enter... GO!

Requirements

For your story to be eligible, it must be between 600 and 5,000 words and adhere to our Community Guidelines.

    How Challenges Are Judged

    There’s no one right way to tell a story. Inspiration comes in all shapes and sizes, and we want to see what yours looks like. Challenges are meant to inspire this creativity, and we want to see you tell a story that’s unique and authentic to you—but there are just a few things we look for across the board to be sure we’re judging every entry consistently and fairly.
