4. Guns N’ Roses’ “Welcome to the Jungle”
The gym might very well seem like a jungle sometimes with everyone trying to get their sweat on, but with this track playing through your earbuds, you’ll take in the experience rather than get frustrated by it. Even Dorian Yates has used this particular song on leg day while training to become Mr. Olympia, so if it can work for him, it will definitely work for you as well.

Another fantastic workout song is “Dark Horse” by Katy Perry. It’s a great dance song with a bit of an edge that will inspire you to get moving.

Do you go to the gym to let out your frustrations and release stress? Then play some Taylor Swift on your iPod. We particularly like “Shake It Off” for its lyrics.
8. Metallica’s “Enter Sandman”
A classic rock jam is “Enter Sandman,” with the ideal rhythm to power through even the toughest routine.
9. Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You”
Want a track that’s great for strength training or stretching? Then go with the slower tempo of “Shape of You.”
10. Florence + the Machine’s “Cosmic Love”
