The Only Work Out Playlist You Need

The Only Work Out Playlist You Need | Why Hello Lovely

Happy Friday everyone!  I hope you all had a lovely week.  I don’t know about you, but this week really flew by for me.  I literally blinked and it was all of a sudden Friday morning at 3am.  Today’s blog post hadn’t been completed yet and a I had a whole week’s worth of assignments to do.  Luckily, I’m a night owl and was able to stay up late to get it all done!

Now that I’m back at the gym, I felt that it was important to create a good workout playlist.  I tend to need upbeat and motivational songs in order to keep myself pumped up and ready to work out, especially when I’m pushing myself to beat my personal record for my mile run.  My personal playlist consists of around 50 songs ranging from new, upbeat pop songs to rap to some oldies.  As long as it’s upbeat and keeps me motivated, it’s on my playlist!  So today I’m sharing 10 songs that are always a must have on my workout playlist.

Love Myself by Hailee Steinfield

Break A Sweat by Becky G

I Cant Stop by Flux Pavillion

Heartbeat Song by Kelly Clarkson

Call on Me by Eric Prydz

Sexy Chick by David Guetta

Hello by Martin Solveig

Pop That by French Montana

Good Good Night by Roscoe Dash

Where Them Girls At by David Guetta

I love hearing your recommendations!  What songs are a must have on your workout playlist?  

  • I love reading music recommendations! I don’t download music onto my phone since I have way too many apps for music to fit haha (: But I do love the workout playlists on Pandora!!

    • I’ve never been a huge fan of Pandora. I may have to check it out again though. I use Spotify so I can sync my playlists across all my devices. I love it. Although I did have to get a new phone with more storage space because I have so many songs haha

  • I LOVE all of these songs! Especially the Hailee Steinfield one.

  • Kerin Monaco

    Loving this. My new fave is Jennifer Lopez’ “Booty” I only just discovered in and love running to it.

    • I haven’t heard that one before!! I’ll have to look into it and add it to my list before the gym tonight. Thanks for the recommendation! 🙂

      EDIT: I lied. I’ve heard it and I have no idea why it’s not on my playlist haha adding it now!

  • Sandra

    Love Myself: Personsl favorite! 🙂

  • Jen

    I wish I could work out with music, it messes me up too much.

    • Whaaaaa?! I couldn’t imagine working out in silence! haha I’ve tried watching tv, but that doesn’t work. I need to get in the zone when I work out. Especially when I’m running. I HATE running lol

  • Chrissa – Physical Kitchness

    LOVE! I cannot run without my music! Love upbeat, inspiration playlist. You have some great song ideas here.

    • I cant run without music either. I cant stand running so good music is what motivates me to push through it haha

  • I prefer to listen to “oldies” when I’m jogging. I do have some music of today on my list, but not many. I like the group Fun.

    • I can only go so “old” haha I love Fun although they don’t make it onto my work out playlist lol

  • Serena Reidy

    Some great songs for working out to. I need music when doing exercise!

  • Shann Eva

    I don’t know all of these songs, but the ones I do, I really like. So, I’m going to have to check out the rest. Thanks! I always need new music when I’m working out.

    • Yes! Check them out! 🙂 I wanted to link to my Spotify playlist for you all to follow along and save the songs, but I didn’t know how. I’ll have to look into it haha

  • Kait

    Where Them Girls At is my favorite song to run to — great suggestions!

    • Yessss! I also run to it. I love it! Glad you like my suggestions.

  • Leave the Night on my Sam Hunt is a must!

    • I love Sam Hunt! I have that song on a few other playlists, but I’ve never been able to work out to country.

  • Menopausalmother

    I like all of these but I LOVE anything by David Guetta!!

    • David Guetta is perfect for the gym!! Always so upbeat and fun!

  • Sexy Chic is a staple of my gym play lists lol!

    • Haha it’s like my go to work out song. It always leaves me feeling sexy and good about myself lol

  • I love your workout playlist!! It is perfect and I am obsessed with Love Yourself! Such an uplifting song! On my playlist, I also have Sexy Back….

    • Thanks Emily! I’ll have to add Sexy Back! I haven’t heard that song in forever haha thanks for the recommendation!

  • Yassss! This is a great list! I love that Hailee Stenfield song and I Can’t Stop by Flux Paviliion is SO good. I also love anything from 30 Seconds to Mars when I’m working out!

    • Girl, you’re my new BFF. 30 Seconds to Mars is my all-time favorite band, EVER haha I’m not sure why they’re not on my playlist though…I tend to like more rap and pop when I work out I guess lol

      • No way! They are one of my favorite bands of all time! I got to see them in concert back in 2010 and it was literally life changing!

        • I’ve seen them in concert twice. Once in 2010 and then again in 2011 (maybe 2012…I don’t remember). Their concerts are AMAZING. Both times was at a smaller venue too so it’s more intimate and you can get right up close to the stage. It’s awesome. I need to go again ASAP haha

  • Girl YES!!! Love upbeat songs like this when I’m working out! I also love “Fight Song” by Rachel Platten because it makes me want to win a war or something haha!

    • Haha I also have Fight Song on my playlist as well. I’m not sure why I didn’t add it to this list. Such a great song!

  • Whoo! I love Call On Me. I’ve met so many people who think it’s strange that I have that on my Spotify haha

  • I LOVE Sexy Chick. It always makes me feel better when I’m working out. It’s motivational lol I’m currently updating my playlist and then hitting the gym tonight 🙂

  • I love any song I can dance to while working out! I am glad I have a treadmill at my house where no one can see my dance party!

    • Haha I tend to jog to the beat of the music. No one notices but me. Or at least I don’t think anyone notices… lol
