Workout Music (and a super college discount!)

Music can have a profound effect on your workout.  When I first started working out, I didn’t listen to music; I preferred the sounds of the iron clinking, and the grunts of people lifting weights.  One day, I decided to bring my iPod to the gym to see what would happen.  I was surprised to find that I easily lifted more weight.  The music energized me.  Below, I have created a short playlist for YOU!  Different people prefer different genres of music, so the list is divided into Rap/R&B, Rock, Heavy Metal, Electronic, and Pop.  I have found that these genres are particularly effective for working out.


Jay-Z and Kanye West- Power

Hoodie Allen- The Chase is On

Usher- Caught Up

Biggie Smalls- Hypnotize

G.O.O.D. Music- Clique


Europe- Final Countdown

Journey- Separate Ways

Nirvana- Smells Like Teen Spirit

Rush- Tom Sawyer

Sum 41- Fat Lip

Lit- My Own Worst Enemy

Heavy Metal

Metallica- Enter Sandman

Drowning Pool- Let the Bodies Hit the Floor

Pantera- Walk

A Day to Remember- Downfall of Us All

Avenged Sevenfold- Bat Country


Laidback Luke & Steve Aoki- Turbulence

Avicii- Levels

Afrojack & Steve Aoki- No Beef

Ellie Goulding- I Need Your Love

Adrian Lux- Teenage Crime (Tonic Dutch Bootleg)


Imagine Dragons- Radioactive

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis- Can’t Hold Us

Rihanna- Where Have You Been

Icona Pop- I Love It

Major Lazer- Watch Out

Of course, the genres overlap quite a bit, but I used my best judgement.  Go ahead, download, listen, and get pumped!  After your workout, be sure to replenish your nutrients by taking your tunes over to Bleecker’s Finest Deli with your student ID and Campus Clipper coupon for a special discount.
