You’ve been listening to Taylor Swift’s Midnights for a few weeks now…but have you ever worked out to it?! Topping the charts right now, every song on this album is a whole vibe. So why not bring that energy to the gym?
TikToker Allie Bennett, famous for her totally awesome treadmill workouts, recently released a Midnights workout challenge. So of course, I had to try it!
Not sure what to expect from a TikTok treadmill workout?
I wasn’t either. But as a certified Swiftie, I was so ready to strut my stuff and get my workout on. I headed to my local gym to try out the Midnights Treadmill Strut Challenge. (Wearing my favorite POPFLEX Shortsie, of course!)
The workout starts with “Karma” and warms you up with a chill walk at a 2.8 mph pace. For the next few songs, you increase by .1 mph.
After one warm up song, I put the treadmill on an incline for an extra challenge.
Keep increasing your speed, walking a little faster until you jump to a running pace for “The Great War” and “Would’ve Could’ve Should’ve”. You guys, these songs were hard!
The original creator of the challenge is 5’9, so if you’ve got shorter legs, you may want to heed her advice and go a bit slower! I recommend a 6.0-6.5 mph pace.
Finally, cool down is back to 3.0 for “Vigilante Shit” (which I did on an incline) and close it out strutting your stuff to “Bejeweled” (and if you find yourself doing the “shimmer” fingers, same).
Are you pumped to try this TikTok treadmill workout too? No need to pause the video and take notes; I broke it down for you below.

Post-treadmill workout thoughts
Overall, I love how versatile this workout is! You can totally customize it to really make it your own. Plus, it’s a great way to take in new music and really focus on the songs.
