best workout songs

Whether you’re looking to build muscle, lose weight, or simply stay in shape, there are several songs to keep you motivated and inspired. We’ve compiled a list of our favorites for all workout levels. From pop to rock, jazz to country, there’s something for everybody in this playlist.

Aretha Franklin’s “Respect”

Aretha Franklin’s “Respect” is one of the most influential recordings in pop music history. It was recorded during a time of segregation in the music industry, and in the midst of the civil rights movement. As such, it became a rallying cry for the movement.

The song became a huge hit for both Aretha and Otis Redding. However, despite the crossover success, the version from Aretha wasn’t always viewed as a respectful version of Redding’s original.

Instead, Aretha’s version was considered a feminist spin on the song. She changed the lyrics to fit her broader perspective on how people should treat one another. This changed the song’s meaning and helped make it her signature song.

As a result of the change, “Respect” became one of the most influential songs of the 1960s. It was a defining moment for Aretha Franklin and her career.

Not only did “Respect” take the R&B world by storm, but it also served as a rousing anthem for the civil rights movement. It’s been featured in more than a dozen films, and the song has become a karaoke staple.

Ava Max’s “Blood, Sweat & Tears”

The name Ava Max is a mouthful. But the lady is a doer and not just a whiz at the guitar. She has two albums and one single under her belt and a few awards to her name. Those of you with a hankering for a new musical endeavor may want to check out her newest venture. Despite her short stint in the limelight, she is certainly a force to be reckoned with. Earlier this year, she was nominated for Best New Artist at the VMAs. Not bad for an upstart who is just getting off the ground. And her luck will continue as she is rumored to be in the running for a spot in the popsuite at the Grammys next month. Hopefully she can make it a hat trick. Until then, check out her music videos if you are in the mood for a good time.

Besides Ava, her sister Arielle and the rest of the gang, there are several other upstarts making the rounds. Check out her newest release, a track dubbed “Blood, Sweat & Tears” which debuted on 31 July.

Kanye West’s “Side to Side”

Kanye West is one of the most successful rappers of the past decade, releasing nine albums, countless singles, and winning a few trophies along the way. His latest album is titled “Cocaine Dealer”, and it’s a soulful reminder to trust the art. However, it also isn’t without its share of controversy.

In a recent interview, Kanye made some interesting claims. One of the most notable claims was that his daughter North West was put on a TikTok video against her mother’s wishes. Another is that he threatened to take Eva Mendes to sleep.

In fact, it’s hard to find any other rap superstar who has made such bold claims. Still, West has managed to pull off a pretty decent feat: a platform suspended over a crowd of people that floats side to side like a Hershey bar.

What’s more, the platform is a mere 16 feet wide and 20 feet tall. But, the big news is that the song “Side to Side” by Ariana Grande is featured on the platform. Considering the popularity of the song, it’s no surprise that it’s on the platform.


If you’re looking for an entertaining workout, there’s a good chance that you’ve heard of Struts. These British rockers are a great live act, and they’ve got the goods. In fact, they’ve played with Guns ‘N Roses and opened for the Rolling Stones. They’re currently on tour in the States and will be playing in Cincinnati on December 8 at Bogarts.

While Struts isn’t the first band that comes to mind when you think of workouts, they do have their own merits. One of their most famous songs, “Woman,” is a solid groove that keeps the party going. Similarly, the band has a good handle on the other end of the spectrum, releasing a couple of albums of high quality power ballads.

The band is also big on the streaming sphere. Several of their songs appear in Spotify’s latest list of the best tracks to train to. And, their front man, Luke Spiller, plays the keyboard on a mocked-up baby grand. It’s a good thing he did, as he’s one of the most charismatic musicians to grace the stage.

Dua Lipa’s “Con Altura”

Don’t Start Now is the perfect song to get you through a workout. It has an upbeat production and a bassline that sounds like Daft Punk or Two Door Cinema Club. The lyrics are powerful, encouraging you to believe in yourself.

Dua Lipa’s debut single has been getting a lot of airplay this year. It reached the number three spot on the UK singles chart. This isn’t her first time hitting the top of the charts though. In fact, her previous single, “Physical,” is a hit in her native Britain.

Dua has been working with renowned vocal coach Lorna Blackwood to master her high notes. She was also supported by boyfriend Anwar Hadid during her MTV EMA performance.

Her debut album, New Rules, was released in 2013. But it wasn’t until last year that her career took off. With “Don’t Stop Now,” she was able to bring her career to a whole new level.

As a result, she’s now in the process of working on a new album that’s sure to take the pop world by storm.

Chicago’s 25 Or 6 To 4

One of the most popular Chicago songs is “25 Or 6 To 4,” from the band’s second album. It reached #4 on the U.S. Singles Chart, and stayed on the charts for a total of 20 weeks. The song features a recognizable riff, a guitar solo, and recognizable horns.

“25 or 6 to 4” was written by Robert Lamm, the band’s keyboardist, organist, and vocalist. He wrote the lyrics in 1969. His lyric for the song focuses on overcoming a creative barrier. However, there has been debate over the meaning of the song’s title. Some say it’s a reference to LSD, while others claim it means something else entirely.

The song was recorded in August 1969. It’s the first time Chicago used a cursive logo on the sleeve. That’s a pretty impressive feat, considering the fact that they’re one of the best-selling bands of all time. Their first two albums, Chicago and Chicago II, have become jazz-rock classics. They are also the first American band to chart in the Billboard Pop Top 40 for six straight decades.

Travis Scott’s “Sicko Mode

Travis Scott’s SICKO MODE is one of the biggest songs of 2018. It features a guest verse from Drake, and is played at a steady 78 beats per minute. As a result, it is an ideal track to play on the treadmill while you’re exercising.

In the song, Travis Scott talks about his personal relationships with his parents. The lyrics also talk about his success in the music industry. He has worked with Kanye West on various projects and appeared on GQ and Rolling Stone covers. Among others, he has a daughter with Kanye’s sister in law, Kylie Jenner.

The track is a five-minute pop song. The song is produced by Dutch DJ Tiesto, who also produces Drake’s “Hotline Bling” and Ava Max’s “Blood, Sweat & Tears”.

There are three main sections to the song. Each section contains a distinct idea, which is layered over a club-heavy beat. At the end of each segment, the beat changes. This creates a three-part odyssey.

The song is filled with anthemic pop instincts, which combine with clubby beats. English singer Mabel adds soulful vocals to the track.
