It has been awhile, but I am glad that today I can join Eat Pray Run DC, You Signed Up for What?! and Mar on the Run in their Friday Five linkup. Today’s theme is our 5 fave fitness songs.

Friday Five: 5 Fave Fitness Songs

Sincerely, the soundtrack of my workout sessions vary a lot. These days, when I arrive early in the morning at the gym and I am literally alone, I do not even use my iPod. When the first (loud) member arrives however, I put on my headset and do not bother head banging in my own world.

There are a few songs that I always come to no matter the mood I am in these are my most played top 5 (in no specific order):

1. Nicki Minaj – Starships

2. Enrique Iglesias – I’m a Freak (feat. Pitbull)

3. Stromae – Rail de musique (unfortunately, there is no official video for this one)

4. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis – Can’t Hold Us (feat. Ray Dalton)

5. Imperfect Intruder – Perfect Intruder

This one does not have a video either, but if you watch some of the videos from Kris Gethin on, you will be able to listen to it.

Or you listen to a sample from iTunes here.


You will probably notice that they are all from different styles, but that is one of the reasons I like them so much. I am a fan of good music, not matter the genre. And if it helps me get one extra rep, go heavier for just a little longer or increase my pace, I do not need anything else.

And what about YOUR top 5 favorite fitness songs? And what makes them special to you?

Make sure you also check the tunes of other bloggers from the linkup!

Train strong and have fun!
