Summer Workout Playlist

The team at VIM & VIGR love to move to a wide variety of songs. We’ve put together a motivational (and pretty diverse) playlist for your summer workout! Beat the heat this summer with these jams to keep you going.

Waka Waka - Shakira

“Shakira's music makes you move, whether you want to or not. When I get tired, I try and time my footsteps to the beat - it's impossible to slow down when you're listening to Shakira!”

- Rachel Brumfield, VIM & VIGR, Marketing Manager

Day 'N' Night - Kid Cudi

“When I am in the gym I use this song to keep me focused and motivated.  I like to use the rhythm to set the pace of my workout.”

- Eric Bruner, VIM & VIGR, Business Analytics & Supply Chain Management

Idioteque - Radiohead

“I sometimes put this song on repeat when I run. It’s melodic so it gets me on a good running rhythm. There’s also different stages of the song that make it interesting.”

- Michelle Huie, VIM & VIGR, Founder

The Beginning - RuPaul

“The wonderfully cheesy, pulsing techno beat, combined with the pump-you-up inspirational notion that every day is a new, fresh start makes this my favorite go-to elliptical jam.”

- Kira Canny, VIM & VIGR, Director of Marketing

Sorry Not Sorry - Demi Lovato

“This song pumps me up and makes me want to get after it. Plus, I think Demi Lovato is a very strong, inspiring woman who demonstrates to females that it is okay to not be perfect and to be proud of your curves and imperfection. She is also a strong advocate for individuals receiving help for numerous mental illness such as depression. She makes me realize we should never be ashamed of who we are!”

- Bailey Harper, VIM & VIGR, Assistant Marketing Manager

I Love It - Icona Pop

“I can’t think of a better song to do a HIIT workout too. The fast chorus gives you the right amount of motivation to give it your all. I know I don’t have anything left after a workout when this song comes on.”

- Joy Olson, VIM & VIGR, Social Media Coordinator

It Won’t Be Long Now - Karen Olivo

“This is my pump up song because it is increasingly upbeat and has a distinct rhythm change in the middle that keeps you attentive. The story this song tells is about a young woman’s dream and plan to be successful, and any story along these lines gets me excited and on my feet.”

- Rachel Schaeffer, VIM & VIGR, Marketing Intern

Rome Plows - Drive Like Jehu

“Back before injuries and when I could get away with running longer I would need that ‘power song’ at the end. With the intensity and driving drums, this was one I would try to make just that song.”

- Edgar Canny, VIM & VIGR, Account Manager


Other Songs We Like:

Can’t Stop the Feeling - Justin Timberlake

What better way to kick off your workout then with this upbeat tune that’ll get your blood pumping and legs moving! Plus, your kids will love singing along with you for extra support.

So What - P!nk

This female kick*ss anthem fuels your second or third set. So what, you’re still a rockstar... for working out to this upbeat song.

Dangerous Women - Ariana Grande

Listening to Ariana belt out the lyrics in her impressive vocal range will boost you over the mid-workout slump.

Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You) - Kelly Clarkson

This one is pretty self explanatory. This mid-workout pick-me-up keeps you striving for more.

Bloom - ODESZA

Recover to this powerful song and reflect on what a great workout you just had! You made it!

Sizing, Fabric & Compression Levels Guide

Size Chart:

We have a different sizing chart depending on the type of compression garment. Please consider your foot and calf circumference when choosing your size.

If you're in between sizes, ask yourself a few questions:
What is my body type? Will I be more comfortable in a size up or down? Take your body type into consideration when choosing a size especially if you're in between sizes.

Compression Levels:

Compression garments are made in a variety of support levels, each of which is designed to address different needs. These levels are most commonly expressed in millimeters of mercury (abbreviated as mmHg). Generally, graduated compression is displayed in ranges. The higher the numerical value, the stronger the support level indicated. For example, a 20-30 mmHg garment will offer more support and feel tighter than a 15-20 mmHg garment.

All of VIM & VIGR’s products are offered in 15-20 mmHg compression level and select styles are available in 20-30 mmHg.

How to put on compression socks:

Slip your arm into the sock until your fingers reach the toes. Your palm should be resting in the sock's heel. 

Starting at the cuff, fold the sock over until it meets the heel. Make sure to fold the sock onto itself.

With the sock still inverted, pull the foot of the sock firmly onto your foot. Make sure your toes are securely in the toe pocket. Starting with the cuff, gradually roll the sock up.

Adjust so that your heel is properly positioned in the heel pocket and the cuff sits below the knee. Make sure the cuff is not pulled up too high.
