Making goals is relatively easy. It's sticking with them that gets tricky. If you have fitness goals you'd like to accomplish in 2015, then we have just the playlist you need to boost your motivation to kick that resolution into high gear.

Each of the songs included in the mix below emphasizes a certain message rather than beats per minute (BPMs) to inspire your workout. There are a few quick numbers in here, but the music is more upbeat than it is uptempo. To speed things up and exercise to the rhythm, you can always double your pacing to match the BPMs. (Need help pacing your run? Check out these 10 Marathon Training Songs to Set Your Pace.)

Want to remember your potential for greatness? Consider Kanye's "Power" or 30 Seconds to Mars' "Kings and Queens." Need to toughen up when the going gets rough? Try The Chemical Brothers' "Galvanize" or Will.I.Am, Mick Jagger, and J-Lo's "The Hardest Ever."

Okay, so this might not be so much a traditional playlist as it is a list of go-to tracks you can use to amp up your workouts and shake off obstacles. But it definitely will come in handy when you hit a wall or need some fitspiration to take your workout to the next level. Here, 10 tunes to drive your fitness goals in 2015.
