Workout Playlist To Pump You Up

Friday February 28, 2014 by Alexandra C.

With all this testing out of new gyms and studios, not only are our bods getting a workout, but our iPods are too. The only thing that makes the treadmill bearable for me is a good playlist that pumps me up, keeps me going when I want (so very desperately) to stop and helps me wind down with a stretch. 

If you're like me, a decent playlist is a must for a trip to the gym, and we're here to help you out. Here are 10 of our favourite gym tunes +  a bonus jam to cool down: 

Lady Gaga feat. R. Kelly - Do What U Want 

Diddy feat. T.I., Rick Ross - Dirty Money - Hello Good Morning 

OutKast - B.O.B. 

Icona Pop - All Night 

Olly Murs feat. Flo Rida - Troublemaker 


The Strokes - Last Nite 

Miss Elliot - Lose Control

Beyoncé feat. Jay Z - Drunk in Love 

Daft Punk feat. Pharrell - Get Lucky 

Brianna Perry - Marilyn Monroe 

Bonus Track for Stretching: 
Bon Iver - Re:Stacks

Okay, I've just discovered some amazing 80s music, and I love the song Two of Hearts by Stacey Q and Let The Music Play by ummm...Shannon I believe.

None of these really do it for me! Salt-N-Pepa always gets me moving!

I listen to a lot of Modest Mouse, Arcade Fire, and Tom Petty when I work out. When I need a beat/something to push me through the end of a long cardio day, I listen to In Flames, Lily Allen or Gorillaz. Not the most typical but it motivates me and makes the time fly by!

Stacks is my all time FAVOURITE cool down song.

And I'm just downright obssessed with Beyonce these days. 'Nuff said there!

I like some of these songs, but I couldn't work out to them -- I prefer doing more dance music, and some super fun old school music like BSB, Spice Girls, etc!
