Best Workout Songs


The Top Ten

1 Eye of the Tiger - Survivor

I wish my gym teacher would play this more on the speakers when we lift weights

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 - SirSheep

The best one ever

I knew this was gonna be number one

3 Lose Yourself - Eminem

Funny how this is third and beat it is higher - SnoopDoggedyDog

Lose yourself is a great song but phenomenal should be on the list

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!

7 'Till I Collapse - Eminem

Lose yourself and this are the best songs - SnoopDoggedyDog

If u think this is good listen to the remix - SnoopDoggedyDog

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?

8 Enter Sandman - Metallica

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

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.

Exit light, enter night.

There's no close second.

9 Gonna Fly Now - Bill Conti

I only like this, and ''Eye Of The Tiger''

¡the simply greatest, for a workout routine!

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.

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.

46 Animals - Nickelback

It deserves the number one place. It's the best song for running and workout! When the pitch becomes higher and when the voice rises you will get energy boost! It really works for hardcore running with full energy. I always hear it three to five times in my warm up running session, my blood starts boiling!

This song is about sex
