The 25 Best Workout Songs of 2016

workout songs of 2016

Wow. 2016 was quite the year for music, especially workout music. And after getting input from you guys, combing through our own playlists from the last year and doing a deep dive on the most played tracks of the year on Spotify (by the way, follow us!), we have compiled the best 25 workout songs of 2016. And it makes for a rockin’ playlist. So get ready to jam out, guys.


I always love our best-of playlists because they’re kind of like a walk down memory lane. Like, one song will remind me of an amazing Spin class and another tune will take me back to a particularly challenging yet awesome WOD. So, play it loud and play it proud … and get your sweat on with the best workout songs of 2016!

(Note: for the purposes of this particular playlist, we’re selecting songs that were uber popular in 2016 — not necessarily released in 2016.)

  1. Great songs. thanks for the list.

  2. This is a great playlist. I appreciate how you put this list together, taking everything into consideration.

    I agree that this was a year full of great workout songs, so it’s definitely not easy to narrow the list down, but you did it. I know I wouldn’t have been able to keep the list at 25.

    However, I would say Cheap Thrills may have been my favorite song this year.

    Thank you for this list. It brings back songs that I definitely forgot about from earlier in the year.

  3. Love this! I am always on the lookout for good workout songs.
