The Best Workout Songs To Get You Motivated At The Gym

These bops will surely get you moving!

Many millennials and Gen Zs admit to needing music during a workout. We need something to help us focus on the task at hand. What better way to do that than a carefully curated Spotify playlist with workout songs?

These workout songs are bangers, and we bet they’ll have you doing more burpees than your required number.

Black Eyed Peas & Shakira, “GIRL LIKE ME”

This song has a great beat, and the Latin flavor provided by Shakira makes you want to shake your hips. Black Eyed Peas delivers the bass, and you’ll find yourself timing your movements to it. The rap parts against a melodic background are perfect for warming up.

Ariana Grande, “34+35”

This is the perfect song to listen to if you’re doing leg day. It’s chill, which means you’ll be able to relax while doing your hip thrusts. This is also perfect for hip rolls, and it’s sensual enough to make what you’re doing look sexy.

Gavin Haley, “Lottery”

“Lottery” is the best song to play while doing jumping jacks and light jogging. It’s upbeat but won’t pressure you to follow the beat. That means this song is good enough for warm-ups or cool-downs.

One Republic, “Run”

Now, if you’re looking for a great song to play while you’re running, this is it. It has a fast-paced beat, and you’ll find that you’re running in time to it. But it’s too fast that you’ll end up gasping for breath trying to follow it.

Cardi B & Megan Thee Stallion, “WAP”

“WAP” is the best song to play while working your glutes. If you’re trying to get a butt like Cardi B‘s, her collab with Megan Thee Stallion is perfect. It starts slow, with Cardi rapping like a badass, then it transitions to a faster beat. The lyrics suggest movements that will contribute to your workout.

Gwen Stefani, “Hollaback Girl”

If you’re the type to listen to old songs while working out, this bop from 2004 is all you need. This is best for when you’re doing jumping jacks between toning sessions.

City Girls & Cardi B, “Twerk”

Another oldie but goodie, get those butt cheeks clapping as you move to this song’s fast beat. You’ll be twerking in time with Cardi B while working out to get a butt like hers.

Nelly Furtado & Timbaland, “Promiscuous”

Doing sit-ups with a hot partner while listening to this song is the best way to ensure a post-workout date. Have them hold your feet and stare into their eyes while you do your thing.

Britney Spears, “Work Bitch”

Britney doesn’t just want you to work out. She wants you to work for what you want as well. This bop is excellent for motivating yourself during an intense cardio session. If you’re into Soul Cycle, you’ll be pedaling to the beat.

Rihanna, “Pon de Replay”

Another song to do cardio to, “Pon de Replay,” is on almost every Spotify workout playlist. It has bass drops like you wouldn’t believe. Great to play when you’re working your upper body out.

Khia, “My Neck, My Back”

If you’re looking for a song to play while working on your neck, back, and lower extremities, this is it. It has suggestive lyrics that tell you which body part to focus on.

Anne-Marie & Little Mix, “Kiss My (Uh Oh)”

This song will help finish strong. It’s super upbeat, and you’ll be able to feel the adrenaline coursing through your body. You’ll find that using this as a cool-down song will energize you even after a rigorous workout.
