Sometimes it can be a challenge to motivate yourself to hit the gym. We get it. The struggle is real. All too real. What keeps us going when every fiber in our being resists? Music. A kick-ass playlist can make all the difference at the gym.
In that spirit, we’ve compiled a go-get-‘em playlist that will boost your mood and your heart rate for a workout worth writing home about.
Summer is coming, people—no more hiding under poofy sweaters or bulky hoodies!
1 | You Are the Reason (Tiesto AFTR HRS Remix) – Calum Scott
2 | This is Me – Keala Settle
This take-me-as-I-am anthem was nominated for Oscar’s Best Original Song but lost. It did win the Golden Globe though and inspired Kesha to cover it just two months after its original release.
3 | What About Us? – P!nk
The artist’s got a litany of hits that span two decades, but this 2017 entry is definitely a defiant must-have for any modern workout playlist.
4 | Swalla – Jason Derulo, featuring Nicki Minaj, Ty Dolla $ign
In case you need to add a little freak to your workout, this ditty delivers.
5 | Symphony – Clean Bandit featuring Zara Larrson
We’re not here to argue, but Zara Larrson catapults this popular track to the top of any 2017 workout playlist.
6 | Swish Swish – Katy Perry featuring Nicki Minaj
Silly title aside, it’s catchy, and Katy and Nicki know how to amp up a workout!
7 | Sorry Not Sorry – Demi Lovato
A Disney Channel child star no more, Demi Lovato brings all the vocals as a woman scorned and so ready to move on and party!
8 | New Rules – Dua Lipa
This single is getting heavy radio and club rotation, but it’s still catchy and so worth a spot on your spin list while kicking butt at the gym.
9 | Love So Soft (Cash Cash Remix) – Kelly Clarkson
While most of the album might not work for a workout, this song is a firecracker—especially its Cash Cash remix!
So, hop on the treadmill, grab some free weights, or just dance around your house. This playlist will be sure to get your energy up, and will help to make your workout better! Want to listen to this playlist? Check it out on YouTube here 👇
