Can't Talk Right Now, Busy Thinking About Taylor Swift's Workout Routine

Ok, yes, some of us went through that phase in 2016 when we’d go to a themed-Soul Cycle class and cry-sing along to Hamilton while tapping it back on that god-forsaken bike. Just ignore me if this wasn’t the universal experience I think it is. But that was the closest I’ll ever get to understanding what it takes for Taylor Swift to belt out 40-plus songs with choreographed numbers in front of thousands of screaming fans.

In her recent TIME Person of the Year article, Taylor gave all the details about her Eras Tour workout routine. Let’s talk about them, because maybe if I talk about it enough, I’ll reap the benefits through, like, osmosis or something.

The Treadmill

Taylor said she ran on the treadmill every day while sining the entire Eras setlist aloud. She went “fast for fast songs, and a jog or a fast walk for slow songs.” According to the length of my Spotify “Eras Tour Setlist” playlist, hat’s nearly three hours on the treadmill. Three. Hours. On. The. Treadmill. Every. Day.

The Dogpound

So the treadmill follows a “specialized strength, conditioning, and weights program” at her gym, The Dogpound. The Dogpound is a no-frills gym in NYC in LA, but you wouldn’t know that from its price tag. There are three annual membership tiers, according to its website.

  • Silver – Tier 1: $8,000 annual membership plus $500 initiation fee
  • Platinum – Tier 2: $23,000 annual membership plus $250 initiation fee
  • Black – Tier 3: $36,000 annual membership, initiation fee waived

And monthly membership tiers:

  • Silver – Tier 1: $708 per month
  • Platinum – Tier 2: $2,040 per month
  • Black – Tier 3: $3,333 per month

Personal trainers cost about $200 per hour. There’s typically a waitlist to sign up and you have to submit an application, complete with references. It’s basically Raya. Obviously, there are a ton of other celebs who workout there, like Adam Levine, Hugh Jackman, Cindy Crawford, Gerard Butler, Shay Mitchell, and more.

Dance Class

Taylor learned her choreography for the Eras tour over three months. She claims choreography isn’t her strong suit, but was commited: “I wanted to get it in my bones. I wanted to be so over-rehearsed that I could be silly with the fans, and not lose my train of thought.” Taylor said her choreographer Mandy Moore (no, not that one) “completely changed my relationship to choreography, and somehow got into my brain and figured out exactly how I would think about things.” Mandy was recommended by Tay’s friend Emma Stone, who worked with her on La La Land. 

The Recovery

Taylor’s quote on her post-show routine is all I’ve thought about for the past 48 hours… “I do not leave my bed except to get food and take it back to my bed and eat it there. It’s a dream scenario. I can barely speak because I’ve been singing for three shows straight. Every time I take a step my feet go crunch, crunch, crunch from dancing in heels. But it’s the most fulfilled I’ve ever felt.”

Also, she cut out alcohol. Cool.
