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 


What's your current workout playlist?

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!
