If you're into rap and hip-hop...
But sometimes, all you need is the right song to give you the push you need to keep at it — whether running, biking or weight lifting. TIME is here to help with an essential workout playlist: a mix of songs that are tried-and-tested crowd favorites and some deeper cuts worth your attention from recent years and beyond. We sorted through hundreds of tunes to select the critical picks that help us get our hearts pumping at fitness classes or while working out solo. The end result: a list of 50 of the songs that are best used for motivating you while working out — whatever the activity, from running to weight-lifting to getting in your crunches. Others — a Ricky Martin deep cut, some Brazilian baile funk and even a K-pop track — might be new surprises for the casual listener. Turn on the music and turn up your heart rate. What Cyrus brings to everything is her signature personality and bold vocals. Her tendency to love a chanted chorus makes it easy to sing along to as well, which might help when you need that extra workout boost. It feels like the soundtrack of the best scene in an action movie; it should certainly do the trick at a workout. Also inspiring: the sharp choreography in the music video.

As a runner, I often turn to music to keep me entertained and motivated during my training runs and races. I love discovering new running songs even if "new" only means "new to me" , listening to them, and sharing them with others via my blog posts and Facebook page. I recently asked people to share their favorite running songs , then created a list of titles, new and old, that keep us on our feet and on pace. List in hand, I asked members of SparkPeople.
Running definitely isn't easy. Whether you're a beginner or a pro, it's a continuously challenging workout because you're competing with your own time and endurance—and, I mean, that's the point! As the saying goes, no pain, no gain. But a killer playlist is sure to help you power through every single mile. You need those high-energy songs to motivate you at the start, hardcore bass-heavy bops to keep your body in a steady rhythm, "angry" songs for the excruciatingly difficult moments, and your all time faves as a reward during your cool down. Whether you're training for a marathon, or just starting to get into the habit of running, here's a list of songs that you can add to your playlist. United States. Type keyword s to search.
