We're ringing in the new year with a workout playlist curated for all you active brides-to-be. As we dive right into 2016, full steam ahead, it's never been a better time to start fresh with your workout routine. So if you've found yourself slacking off from your fitness regimen ever since the holidays, it's time to dust off those tennis shoes and grab those earphones. We picked out the best bass-dropping, pump-up jams and dance mixes that will give you that much-needed boost to get you back on track as you crunch your way toward your ideal wedding-day body.

Kick things off with a deliciously sweet remix of Maroon 5's "Sugar," featuring Nicki Minaj who adds her signature fiery verses to spice up one of last year's hottest pop tracks. Another duo we're loving combines newcomers Hudson Thames and Oscar-nominated actress-turned-pop-star Hailee Steinfeld in the feel-good song "How I Want Ya." Seriously, you'll be singing along to the chorus the second you hear it.

We also incorporated our favorite house tracks that will totally get your blood pumping. Warm up to Apres' original "Chicago" mix — a crescendoing dance track with an irresistible beat, perfect for a quick cardio session. Or if you're looking for a mid-tempo track for tackling those weights, you're going to love when Sam Smith teams up with Disclosure for the R&B-tinged, electronic hit "Omen." The DJ duo also lended their dubstep sound to Lorde's "Magnets" to create a dance-heavy track that's guaranteed to keep your adrenaline rushing.

Now of course a workout playlist wouldn't be complete without our favorite pop heartthrobs. "Levels" by Nick Jonas will have you wondering, "When did baby Jonas start dropping these club bangers?" Shrug. We're definitely not complaining. And no one does smooth, mid-tempo grooves like Jason Derulo. His track "Try Me" featuring Jennifer Lopez is exactly what you need to keep you going for that extra mile on the treadmill. And before you think we forgot to include a certain blond-haired, tattooed, angsty pop-star in the mix, don't you fret. We fully expect JBieb's "Sorry" to win the hearts of all you repeat-button listeners. You're welcome.
