Best Workout Songs

The Top Ten
1 Eye of the Tiger - Survivor Eye of the Tiger - Survivor Cover Art

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.

During Basketball practice, they would play a bunch of modern pop, and I always waited for 30 minutes just for the one good song to come on. And oddly enough, I performed better when this song came on

Punching bag music. The fighting theme from Rocky it works well with the whole working out thing.

This one is one iconic song. This somehow reminds me of Katy Perry's roar. Anyone heard it?

2 Beat It - Michael Jackson Beat It - Michael Jackson Cover Art

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!

I love this song!
This is my 2nd favorite Michael Jackson song and a great workout song.

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

I love the beat for this

3 Lose Yourself - Eminem Lose Yourself - Eminem Cover Art

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 best work-out song ever!

I work-out with insanity and this song fits perfectly for the exercises, love it!

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

Lose yourself, till I collapse, cinderella man, not afraid, survival I can go on all night if you want. Eminem is the king of workout songs

4 Master of Puppets - Metallica Master of Puppets - Metallica Cover Art

There's many Metallica songs I listen to at the gym that fires me up

5 Remember the Name - Fort Minor Remember the Name - Fort Minor Cover Art

Heart pumpin' and keeps going'. Always comes in any top workout song lists.

HELL YEAH! Every time this song plays, I work out like a pure badass

Best workout song ever! Must listen

Catchiest song ever

6 Walk - Pantera Walk - Pantera Cover Art

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

Best for weights and push ups.

Listen to the song I don't understand how it's not on this list like honestly search it up

One of the best...

7 Enter Sandman - Metallica Enter Sandman - Metallica Cover Art

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.

This song is the first on my workout playlist.

Exit light, enter night.

There's no close second.

8 Smooth Criminal - Michael Jackson Smooth Criminal - Michael Jackson Cover Art

That's a great song in workout.

I could run the London marathon to this very song and end up first

9 'Till I Collapse - Eminem 'Till I Collapse - Eminem Cover Art

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.

Most of the songs on this list aren't for strength training, but this is the absolute best for it.

Really good song to workout to and to make you want to beat people up you don't like.

Ugh what is this not doing at number 1 it's the most motivational song in existence..

10 Gonna Fly Now - Bill Conti Gonna Fly Now - Bill Conti Cover Art

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.

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

You feel like rocky when listening.

Come on people, it's Rocky!
