8 Songs To Get You Pumped For Your Next Jog

8 Songs To Get You Pumped For Your Next Jog | KeatingBartlett.com

I hate running. There, I said it. I have a love/hate relationship with it. Half of me wants to love it and is super motivated to work towards beating my personal record while the other half of me can’t stand it and has zero motivation to make it a priority in my workout routine. It’s a tough battle sometimes. But having a great playlist helps me a ton.

I’m very motivated by music and it plays a huge role in my mood for the day as well. If I have a good, motivational playlist then I’m much more likely to get off my butt and go for a nice jog. Same goes for anything else in my life. I’m more motivated to clean the house or work on my blog or whatever else I’m wanting to get done.

Now that I’m back at the gym, I spent some time getting my workout playlist cleaned up and updated to motivate myself to get back. So here are eight of my favorite songs on my workout playlist that get me pumped up for my workouts.

  1. Black Skinhead by Kanye West
  2. BO$$ by Fifth Harmony
  3. Green Light by Lorde
  4. Me Too by Meghan Trainor
  5. Sugar by Robin Schulz feat. Francesco Yates
  6. Unstoppable by The Score
  7. Get Up (Rattle) by Bingo Players
  8. Something Just Like This by The Chainsmokers

What’s on your work out playlist?


  • Not all of these are my style, but I’m ready to hit the road!

  • My workout playlist is so old! Thanks for the new music recs!

  • Soooooo we have the same exact playlist mindset? I am LIVING for this list!

  • Trisha

    This is exactly what I needed! I have a hard time getting into running and I’ve been listening to the same songs on my playlists for way too long now! Thanks for the recommendations!

  • Corey Wheeland

    Love these songs – I’m especially loving Something Just Like This these days!

  • I cannot run haha. like it’s just miserable for me but I do love my Zumba classes.

  • I love Green Light by Lorde! I can’t run for long periods of time because of my knee replacement, but when I am working out in the gym and need some kick-a music, I tend to turn on 30 Seconds to Mars or 21 Pilots. They both have songs that get me in that “I’m going to show the world that I’m a BOSS!” mood

  • Loving the Chainsmokers these days! I am always in need of new workout tunes so I can’t wait to listen to your spotify list!

  • I love like pop/techno music for running. Totally loving Alessia Cara and Zedd’s song Stay right now. Or some biggie remixes. haha!

    • Yes, I listen to Alessia Cara on repeat in the gym! I also really love Halsey!

  • Same. I really hate running. I’ve had to look for other HIIT workouts that I can do besides running!

  • I love Something Just Like This! I definitely need to get a new workout playlist together – it’s long overdue!

  • This is perfect timing…I really needed a new list to get motivated. Meghan Trainor always has upbeat music and I pretty much love anything by The Chainsmokers. 🙂 erin

  • Twin Pickle

    Fun list! I miss my running days, purely for the music!

  • Girl, I feel ya. I’m slowly starting to enjoy running just because I’m liking the results I get from it. But I definitely could not make it through without some good tunes. I LOVE Me Too by Megan Trainor.

  • I am with you, I hate running. More hate than love, but also love the results. And a playlist is the bestttt – I’m currently going through early 2000;s R&B. happy running!
