It may still be below 50 degrees in New York City (seriously, is ever going to get warmer?), but we definitely have summer on the brain! The sunny months are jut around the corner, which brings outdoor cookouts, cruising through your local parks and jetting off to the beach. But can you still fit into that teeny-tiny bikini from year’s past?

Well today (April 1), we at Idolator are here to motivate you so that you (and us as well) can reach those summer body goals! Below is our curated list (in no particular order) of ten music videos that have an fitness theme. So grab some dumbbells, strap on your sweatbands and let’s get our exercise on!

1. “Fergalicious” — Fergie

Kicking off this list is Fergie’s “Fergalicious” single, which was taken off the singer’s underrated debut — The Dutchess. The tune is based around J.J. Fad’s “Supersonic” sample that is revved up by energetic synths and a rumbling bassline. The accompanying video is a candy-colored wonderland, which includes clips of the singer up in the gym just working on her fitness! Fergie-Ferg was supposed to have a redeeming comeback last year (it obviously didn’t happen), but hopefully she can release more motivating tunes like these!

2. “The New Workout Plan” — Kanye West

Next up is Kanye West’s hilariously brilliant 2004 single, “The New Workout Plan.” In Yeezy’s most fun video to date, he teaches ladies how to transform from being a ho to a housewife. Backed by a frantic production complete with hand claps, screeching violins and a funk-inspired groove, the song makes you feel like you’re actually sweating your weave out while on a treadmill. So if you planned on snagging a baller or shot caller for the summer months, this is the video to watch!
