The Taylor Swift Themed Treadmill Workout That's Going Viral On TikTok

TikTok is awash with a variety of creative workouts and fitness trends that can help can get you pumped, and the Taylor Swift Treadmill Strut is no different. Created by TikToker Allie Bennett, this Taylor Swift-themed treadmill workout is a simple cardio exercise that involves walking and running to the beat of a curated playlist of Taylor Swift songs (via PopSugar). In the now-viral TikTok video, Bennett — who regularly posts workout playlists and fitness techniques — gives her followers step-by-step instructions for a fun and simple 36-minute treadmill workout.

According to Bennett, the overall goal of the workout is to steadily increase your speed by 0.1 miles per hour with each passing song. To perform the Taylor Swift Treadmill Strut, start off by walking along to Swift's song "The Man" at 3.4 miles per hour, followed by "How You Get The Girl" and "Message In A Bottle." By the eighth song on the playlist, you should be running along to "Shake It Off" at 7.0 miles per hour and 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. If you're unable to walk or run at these speeds, however, Bennett recommends going at your own pace.

Is the Taylor Swift Treadmill Strut an effective workout?

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 (via Today). According to personal trainer Holly Roser, there's a benefit to being able to walk or run at your own speed. "She's not telling you what speed or incline you should be at, just getting you to move," 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. In addition, research has shown that listening to music while working out can actually help increase motivation and boost athletic performance (via Shape). While this workout isn't for everyone, it can certainly help motivate people who aren't used to working out on a regular basis.
