Best Music To Workout To

Whether it’s classical to rock & roll, country to EDM, music preferences can range drastically from person to person. Music can play a huge role in our lives and affects our moods and energy. Most people seem to be set in their ways and accept their music choices as a part of their identity, although, I’m sure most can admit to changing their preferences based on where they are and what they are doing. When it comes to listening to music at the gym, most people would be open to certain music that would help them be more successful and have more energy to get a great workout done!

Workout playlists vary by the type of workout you’re engaging in. What someone listens to when they’re doing cardio could be totally different to someone’s playlist while they’re lifting heavy weights. I have took it upon myself to put together some example songs and music you can listen to when doing different types of workouts or need to feel some extra motivation to push through!



Motivation can be a hard thing to come by so after doing some research I found out that songs that are fast and upbeat can be empowering. According to Psychology Today, these songs can help improve your mood and help you recall good memories which can help you with motivation. Songs with go-getter lyrics and a powerful feel will definitely get you the motivation you’re looking for.

Lose Yourself – Eminem

All Night – Icona Pop

Fool – Fitz and The Tantrums

POWER – Kanye West

Eye of The Tiger – Survivor



There’s nothing better than joining in on a Zumba class and dancing for exercise, but sometimes you want to dance alone. The best songs to listen to would be ones that instantly put a smile on your face so you’re able to dance like nobody’s watching.

House Party – Sam Hunt

Closer – The Chainsmokers

That’s What I Like – Bruno Mars

Livin’ On a Prayer – Bon Jovi

P.Y.T – Michael Jackson


Yoga & Cool-down:

The best songs for after an intense workout or for a de-stressing yoga session would be songs with a mellow beat and a more relaxing melody. Songs that have a slow and steady beat will help slow down your heart rate and allow you to cool off and let your muscles wind down.

Let It Go – James Bay

Ocean Eyes – Billie Eilish

Beating Heart – Ellie Goulding

She’s So High – Tal Bachman

Like Real People Do – Hozier

Music plays a huge role in mood and energy, which is a huge part of any gym experience. While many people probably have their own go-to gym playlist already set, try to incorporate some music that matches the activity you’re doing to help you achieve more and feel more accomplished with your workout!
