Best Workout Songs


The Top Ten

1 Eye of the Tiger - Survivor

One of the best song I ever heard, really fantastic, running and parkour song. It must be in top of the list. I always listen this great song whenever I walk, run, gym and even breakfast time.


Always feel like Rocky Balboa when listening!

The best one ever

2 Beat It - Michael Jackson

Best ot the best!

What, this isn't a very good workout song.

I love the beat for this

My mom played this for home aerobics in the 80s! MJ is a legend, but relevant for any workout these days. It’s actually funny it’s on the list!

3 Lose Yourself - Eminem

You can't help but "lose yourself in the music the moment". Lose yourself definitely deserves to be in top 3. - Donzacuceron

Not only is the beat awesome and the rhythm builds up to a tremendous crescendo, but the lyrics give your workout a sense of urgency and desperation. Just great! I can never listen to this with complacency. You get worked up whenever you listen to this song, which, if you think about it, makes this the best workout song ever!

This is the only song (Besides 'Till I Collapse) that will get me off the couch to pump some iron. EPIC SONG!

No doubt

7 'Till I Collapse - Eminem

Whenever you hear hear song, you just want to fight. It gets you blood pumping and makes you want to work harder. An awesome song, I would say it's better than lose yourself.

Seriously how could you not vote for this song?

So Much Motivation... picks you up when your down

Hear it... you gonna tear it

8 Enter Sandman - Metallica

This song is the first on my workout playlist. - Cyri

There's no close second.

Exit light, enter night.

Best workout song ever. Followed by Iron Maiden: Loneliness Of The Long Distance Runner and Judas Priest: You’ve Got Another Thing Coming, both excellent songs.

9 Gonna Fly Now - Bill Conti

Truly gigantic song and great motivator. It gives great energy boost and makes one pump harder.

If you don't think this deserves at least #2 of 3, go watch Rocky and listen for this song, and then say it doesn't motivate you.

Come on people, it's Rocky!

Any Rocky soundtrack!

The only good song on this list! Can't believe that more people don't listen to the pinnacle metal music while working out.

Great beat and fantastic lyrics as well. Makes you move and gets your blood pumping faster with this song. The English version is good, but the German version is the best.

Yay Rammstein! Du Hast and Ich Will are both great songs to work out to.
