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!

Love it can't stop listening to it AT All

I love the beat for this

Yesss! All of these songs are good for working out. But this one is the best of the best. Michael Jackson makes the right songs for the right occasions.🙂😃

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!

Lose yourself and till I collapse are the biggest songs when it comes to getting pumped up

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.

8 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!
