Nothing gets the heart pumping and the body moving during a good workout like the right music. That’s why we spent time carefully curating a great playlist of the best tracks to exercise to. Whenever you need a little extra push while you exercise, queue up the workout playlist we created especially for The Link. Here’s what it has to offer:
If you need some old-fashioned inspiration, channel your inner Rocky Balboa and play Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger.” Even people who have met and surpassed many of their fitness goals can feel like underdogs sometimes, and nothing will put you over the top like some 1980s-flavored inspiration.
Speaking of tough retro rock, Guns N’ Roses’ “Welcome to the Jungle” is as raw and gritty as it was when it came out 31 years ago. If you need a little something extra while pushing through strength training, Guns N’ Roses can have you singing along and banging your head.
But maybe you’re not into rock. If you need some pop inspiration, Katy Perry’s “Firework” could be exactly what you need to find your second wind. Exercise is all about feeling good, and a strong beat with empowering lyrics may be exactly what you need to keep going.
And if you’re just getting started, Rihanna’s “Don’t Stop the Music” will keep you moving and singing on the gym floor, and its driving beat is perfect for timing your cardio. Just don’t be surprised if the people on either side of you start singing along.
Need a little more inspiration? Just download the list, put it on your phone, hit shuffle and get to work. And if you ever need more recommendations for music that will get you moving, don’t be afraid to ask someone at your local Fitness Connection. We’re always happy to offer a few recommendations.
