Top 7 Songs to Inspire a Longer Workout… And Ultimately Help You Not Fall Over and Die

You know the feeling… there you are at the gym and the last thing you want to do is one last set of deadlifts. In fact, you’d much rather go die… in a corner… where its cool and safe. However, then you remember that you came to the gym for a reason. You want to be a better, healthier you… and if you turn a few heads in the process – icing on the cake. (Oooo… cake. Focus. Focus.) Whether you are hitting up a fitness challenge at the office or just trying to meet your goals with friends at the gym, these 7 songs will help you go harder, work longer and get those results you’ve been dreaming about…

Uptown Funk by Bruno Mars

No one REALLY knows what uptown funk is. Whatever it is… it’s gonna give it to ya…. and you’re gonna love it. So go ahead and crank this one up in cycling class, break out your hair tie for that man-bun and be THAT guy. We won’t tell anybody. THAT guy usually gets all the chicks anyway.

Feeling Myself by Nicki Minaj

You know that feeling you get when you just finished up a really long set of squats? The one where you look in the mirror and admire how great your butt looks in those track shorts and for a moment you contemplate proposing to your own self? Nicki Minaj sums that feeling up perfectly in this song that describes temporary narcissism to a tee.

B@#$! I’m Madonna by Madonna

Madonna isn’t taking any of your crap and ain’t nobody got time for that one guy who hogs the Smith Machine. This song will get stuck in your head for months and leave you feeling more important than you might actually be. But hey… whatever gets you through that last 15 minutes of Zumba without dying.

The Rocky Theme Song

Sure. If your ear plugs fall out of your iPod you’ll be labeled “Adrien” for the rest of your life. You’ll never live it down… especially if you can barely bench a baby squirrel. Nevertheless, there is just something so inspiring about this ditty that will keep you weightlifting, bending and crunching until you meet those goals.

Lose Yourself by Eminem

“You gotta lose yourself in the bench-press the moment that you own it you’re gonna want to let it go…” But don’t. That stuff’s dangerous. So, do yourself a favor and squeak out those last 7 reps to this beat to see results. Hey, it worked in 8 Mile.

I’m Too Sexy by Right Said Fred

You want to get fit and live longer… but let’s face it. You also want to be too sexy for your shirt so sexy it hurts… but before you are so sexy it hurts – it’s gonna hurt a little. Feel the burn with this classic hit and remind yourself of just how good the results will be. Then, for the love of goodness do NOT go ruin all that hard work with a cheeseburger.

Dragula by Rob Zombie

Sometimes you need something a little more hardcore to go harder… especially on leg day when you want to blow up the gym Sylvester Stallone style and never look back… ever, ever again. Whatever your reason for needing an edgier tune, Dragula has it in spades.
