10. “Can’t Hold Us” – Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (feat. Ray Dalton)
Macklemore has written several anthems throughout his limited career up to this point. However, from the wide variety of all of these tracks, he has also created a song worthy of being considered one of the very best workout tracks of all time. “Can’t Hold Us” is a fast paced song that is all about reaching the peak of your potential successes, never limiting yourself by anything. If you can believe it you can achieve it is the mantra, and you just got to keep pushing and keep moving forward because the “ceiling can’t hold us”.
9. “Stronger” – Kanye West
While it is not the only song on this list to feature the adage ‘what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger’, Kayne West has comprised a very powerful and movement inducing track about overcoming adversity. While the song later goes into being into a woman that he is spending time with, the overall driving beat of the track and the chorus reminding you that (even though you are pained right now) you are getting stronger, Kanye West has written a song worthy of being deemed one of the ten best workout songs ever created.
8. “Roar” – Katy Perry
Katy Perry is big on creating songs designed to empower people to push themselves towards reaching whatever goals they might have. “Roar” is a song that is designed to tell all the people that have told you that you would never achieve this, or that you couldn’t do that, that there is literally nothing you cannot do. You can’t tell a lion what to do and how to do it without seeing their ferocity, and Katy is trying to bring out the fighting lion in each of her listeners. “You’re gonna hear me roar” is a direct line to the haters of your dreams, so brush off those vocal cords and roar already.
7. “Fight Song” – Rachel Platten
Rachel Platten has not been on the scene for very long, but she already has one of the anthems that will define pop music in her time. “Fight Song” is all about overcoming the bad things that have happened and reclaiming the life you feel like you have lost control of. In the song Platten admits that while she might be a ‘small boat on the ocean, her presence can send big waves into motion’. While there is nothing quite like feeling bigger than the problems that have brought you down in the past, use this anthem to push you through your workout and conquer your goals each and every day.
6. “Fighter” – Christina Aguilera
Christina Aguilera has written numerous tracks across the years that are designed to help inspire her listeners to overcome the hurdles in their life, or at the very least to know that they are worthy of love and beautiful inside and out. However, when it comes to getting motivated to overcome your current workout plan, “Fighter” is a song that is going to give you that heart of a boxer preparing for a fight. The song features unconventional guitar distortion which differs greatly from her over produced pop tracks, which gives it a gritty feel with a driving beat that will keep you moving until you reach your goals.
5. “Lose Yourself” – Eminem
While the song was not featured on the major album releases from the rapper, Eminem would see some of his greatest successes through the release of “Lose Yourself” from the 8 Mile soundtrack.
