It's hard graft going to the gym but if you have to do it, you may as well have a strong playlist to get you through the misery.


Whether you think it's a distraction or not, studies have proven that music can actually help you maximise your workout. In fact, a University in London found that music can even increase your endurance levels by up to 15% so now you can safely plug in the earphones and look forward to a better workout.

And when it comes to gym playlists, it all comes down to the beat that best suits your rhythm. Some people enjoy the softer sounds of chilled music. And in that case, you should check out the 'Sound You Need' Youtube channel where some stunning playlists have already been assembled.

But whatever your bag is, this is the definitive gym playlist to get you motivated for your workout complete with a blend of rock, dance and pop music.

Kayne West - Power

Not too strong with selecting baby names but you have to admit, the man knows how to invent good beats

Lykke Li - I Follow Rivers

Solid intro and the chorus is an absolute belter. This will bring your workout up a notch.

Kasabian - Fire

Controlled build up with a smashing piece of guitar work. And then chorus makes an explosive arrival, just like your workout should be.

Bruce Springsteen - Born To Run

If you've ever seen him live or on video, you'll notice that the Boss is well equipped with guns so if he can get in that kind of shape from just performing his songs, just imagine what you can achieve with this flowing between your ears in the gym

Florence + The Machine - Dog Days

The power of her voice compels you to get your sweat on.

La Roux - Bulletproof

Underrated artist and an underrated song that deserves a berth in everyone's setlist at the gym.

Dropkick Murphys - Shipping Up To Boston

Standard addition to the playlist and a popular choice among MMA and boxers as their entry tune to the ring.

Rudimental - Not Giving In

An all round excellent piece of music but 2.27 to 3.20 will blow your mind to smithereens.

Kanye West - All Of The Lights

So good we put Kayne in twice but he has some assistance on this number from Rihanna and Kid Cudi therefore a second inclusion is justified.

Project X - Heads Will Roll

Originally written by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, this was one of the key songs in the film 'Project X.' Decent choice for a workout.

The Prodigy - Breathe

Try remaining motionless during this cracker of a tune. Just try it.

AC/DC - Thunderstruck

'Now we're shakin' at the knees.... You've been thunderstruck!!!'

Ellie Goulding - Anything Could Happen

Consistently strong beat throughout the song. Wait for the big climax from 3.05 - 3.25 and get ready to get the most out of your workout.
