Mood-boosting songs to add to your fitness playlist

It’s no secret that exercise boosts your energy. Sweating it out unlocks endorphins, dopamine, and serotonin— chemicals that reduce stress and anxiety and leave you feeling happy. We are in the business of bringing joy to our clients’ lives through fitness that’s fun. We supercharge our classes with a fun playlist that will (almost) make you forget that your trainer promised this would be the last set… three sets ago. 

Listening to music isn’t just fun— the neurological benefits are proven. Researchers found that listening to music triggers the neurochemical systems responsible for reward, stress, social connection, and immunity. In layman’s terms, listening to music is good for you! 

At Enhancewell Fitness, we’ve found that the perfect fitness playlist is tricky to create, but the ability to amp up a virtual classroom with the push of a Spotify button is priceless. Today, we’re sharing a few of our favorite songs for working out. 

The best songs for working out

Low – Todrick Hall

Put this song on and just try not to get in the mood to squat lower— we dare you! 

Milkshake – Kelis

Whether you’re trying to get boys in your yard or you’re working out so you can enjoy your favorite chocolate malt from Sonic guilt-free, Kelis is always a go-to for any fitness playlist! 

You are what you listen to - best workout songs

Turn Me On – Riton x Oliver Heldens ft. Vula 

I need a prescription… for danceable hits like this one. Just try to keep your toes from tapping and hips from swaying when this banger is played. 

Scandalous – Mis-Teeq

Embrace your scandalous side and channel that energy into your workout routine. The beat in this one makes it easy to get into a rhythm for reps of squats, lunges, and pushups. 

Who’s That Girl? – Eve

Who’s that girl? It’s you! Eve hypes herself up in this catchy song, and it’s a great reminder to be your own hype girl (or hype dude). You can do it! 

Shut Down – BLACKPINK 

This music video was posted five days ago and already has over 100 MILLION views. This K-POP group knows how to capture an audience, and their girl power energy is infectious!

About Damn Time – Lizzo

“It’s bad b*tch o’clock,” and Lizzo is the absolute queen of jams that leave you feeling strong and empowered. When you’re “down and under pressure,” work out to this song and leave all that stress behind. 

Woman – Doja Cat

The Afrobeat-infused hip-hop song celebrates all that women can be. From CEO to divine feminine, this song will get you hyped up to work out!

Dancing feet - Fitness playlist

As it Was – Harry Styles 

“You know it’s not the same as it was” is what you’ll be saying about your arm definition after adding this song to your playlist and using it as motivation to keep up the repetitions! 

Nails, Hair, Hips, Heels – Todrick Hall

We started with Todrick Hall and we’re ending with him, too! This song slays, and it’s the perfect song to help you strut your stuff!
