Top 10 Best Cardio Workout Songs


Top 10 Best Cardio Workout Songs

I can say with certainty that music makes or breaks a workout.

Last week as I was running on the treadmill, I was listening to a '90's Smash Hits playlist on Spotify when all of a sudden Sarah McLachlan's Angel came on. You know, the dog shelter song...are you kidding me?! Worst running music EVER!

The next day as Kelsey (from Kelsey Diane Blog) and I were at the gym, my playlist was on point so I suggested to her that we each make a list of our top 10 favorite songs to workout to. (Perhaps I should have specified cardio workout because some of her choices were very Sarah McLachlan-ish.)


We each made our own lists and decided to do a #musicmonday Instagram live where we shared our lists with eachother as well as all of you. Even though we both like a lot of the same bands, our lists were quite different.

Here are my top 10 songs to do a cardio workout to:

  1. AC/DC - Thunderstruck
  1. The Prodigy - Firestarter
  1. Rise Against - Savior
  1. Third Eye Blind - Semi-Charmed Life
  1. Pitbull - Fireball
  1. Linkin Park - Faint
  1. Taylor Swift - Shake It Off
  1. Nickelback - Animals
  1. Hanson - Thinkin' Bout Somethin'
  1. Britney Spears - Work B*tch
