The Taylor Swift Themed Treadmill Workout That's Going Viral
On TikTok
Created by TikToker Allie Bennett, the Taylor Swift Treadmill Strut is a simple cardio exercise that involves walking and running to the beat of a curated playlist of Taylor Swift songs. In the video, Bennett gives her followers step-by-step instructions for a fun and simple 36-minute treadmill workout.
The goal is to increase your speed with each song, starting with "The Man" at 3.4 miles per hour, followed by "How You Get The Girl" and "Message In A Bottle." By the eighth song, you should be running along to "Shake It Off" at 7.0 miles per hour, and you can continue with that pace until the end of "...Ready For It?," before ending with "Style" as a 3.0 mile per hour cool-down song.
As it turns out, experts think the Taylor Swift Treadmill Strut is a great way to get in some cardio, especially for people who are not used to working out. Unlike other workout routines, this fitness trend is simple and relatively unstructured, which can be beneficial for people at all fitness levels.
"She's not telling you what speed or incline you should be at, just getting you to move," personal trainer Holly Roser told Today. Regardless of your fitness level, Roser says that doing 30 minutes of cardio three days a week can improve your health and even help you reduce body fat.
