Kanye West - 'Stronger'

Sometimes getting through the first five minutes of a workout is the hardest part, so we recommend Kanye's Daft Punk sampled-track 'Stronger,' for some ultimate gym-spiration. 

DJ Khaled Feat. Ludacris, Snoop Dogg, Rick Ross, T-Pain - 'All I Do Is Win'

Four years old, but every bit as energising as it was when it was first released, the clue's in the name of DJ Khaled's 'All I Do Is Win.' 

Sigma Feat. Paloma Faith - 'Changing'

If you've finally tired of Sigma's 'Nobody To Love' (which is also a great workout song), you're in luck as the British duo have recently premiered their latest track with powerful vocals from Paloma Faith. It's every bit upbeat as you'd expect. 

Eminem - 'Lose Yourself'

It's easy to tire of your usual gym-picks but some songs will always remain firmly on the playlist. One of those is Eminem's classic 'Lose Yourself.' If that doesn't inspire you to up the speed on the running machine, what will?

Major Lazor - 'Pon De Floor'

Whether it's the Major Lazor version or Beyoncé's 'Run The World,' the beat on this is absolutely epic and everything you need to wipe the sweat off your head and keep on going.

Disclosure - 'F For You'

Thank god for Guy and Howard Lawrence. Pretty much every song on their debut album 'Settle' is gym-ready, including their infectious 'F For You' - also check out the version with Mary J Blige's vocals on it for an added touch of R&B. 

Tinie Tempah - 'Pass Out'

In the words on Tinie on his debut track "We gon' do this until we pass out." You heard him - keep running! 

Fat Joe & Remy Ma Feat. Jay Z & French Montana - 'All The Way Up' (Remix)

Fat Joe and Remy Ma's motivational banger will give you that extra energy to go the extra mile. "Nothing can stop me, I'm all the way up!"

Avicii - 'Lay Me Down (Avicii Remix)'

Avicii did all gym-goers a favour when he decided to remix his entire album, bringing even more bounce to the already brilliant dance tracks. 

Rihanna - 'S&M'

One of Rihanna's most upbeat songs, you just can't help but jump around when this come on.

Duke Dumont Feat. Jax Jones - 'I Got U'

Duke Dumont has come on the scene and filled lives with effortlessly cool summertime songs, including 'Need U (100%)' and 'I Got U.' Both don't have the bang you want for the peak of your work out, but are great for warm-ups and warm-downs. 

Drake - 'The Motto'

You know the motto, you've heard it a million times, "you only live once," so keep going 

Azealia Banks - '212'

We have a feeling Azealia Banks '21' wont be going anywhere for a very long time, it's still playing in the clubs and it's still get everyone pumped as soon as it comes on in the gym. 

Kanye West Feat. Rihanna and Kid Cudi - 'All Of The Lights'

Kanye and RiRi team up to deliver you a brilliant warm-up track to ease you into you exercise.

Back in the days when 50 and Game were making tracks together, they came up with this winner. If you're feeling like the underdog in your local gym, hit play.

Zinc - 'Show Me'

If you're working out from home, get Zinc's 'Show Me' up on your laptop. The video is practically a free fitness class!

Possibly the best beat on Disclosure's entire album, 'When A Fire Starts To Burn' will get you moving in no time.

With every listen GotSome's 'Bassline' seems to spur you on to start moving your body even more.
