We just got ourselves a new workout playlist.

We've had a pretty Swift-heavy day on PopBuzz today; she took home eight Billboard Awards, released a mind-blowing new music video, and is generally just killing the game.

But her seemingly effortless ability to charm and inspire the world is probably why Ronnie Brower from Cleveland decided to use her music as part of his motivation to lose weight. But this is no ordinary playlist-at-the-gym story; Ronnie has shed over 400lbs in just two years.

Starting at a life-threatening 675lbs, you'd be mistaken if you think that all Ronnie did was "Shake It Off" (sorry); he has spent well over 700 days working tirelessly on an increasingly challenging exercise regime. He started with a handbike on his table at home, and now he's walking miles and lifting heavy weights; all while keeping "Ms. Swift" playing in his headphones.

Ronnie's friend Joe chronicled his progress, and shared the video in the hopes that it would gain Tay's attention; the two of them will be going to her Cleveland 1989 Tour stop in June.

We're sure if this catches Taylor's eye (once the aftermath of her insane weekend) has died down, she'll make Ronnie's concert experience truly memorable. Way to go Ronnie!
