Shape Up with the 50 Best Workout Songs of 2015


Have a New Year's resolution to tackle, or need motivation to hit the gym over the holidays? The best workout songs of the year will help. This playlist gathers 2015's most move-worthy upbeat tracks so you can dance your way from treadmill to dumbbells.

Fuel your workout with everything from pop and Top 40 to alternative and hip-hop. This list of the best workout songs has Grammy nominees like Florence + The Machine and Nicki Minaj, newcomers like Fetty Wap and Tove Lo, Billboard number-one hits like "Can't Feel My Face" by The Weeknd and "Cheerleader" by OMI. One thing is guaranteed: These songs will keep you moving through any workout.

For an extra boost during your workout, reminisce about the good times you've had this year. (You totally partied on the beach, jammed in your car, or started a dance party to these songs.) And if they bring up bad memories? Take it out on the weights or hit "next"—there's almost three hours' worth of music to last through even the longest sweat sesh.

Listen below now, then subscribe to the playlist on Spotify so you can listen on the go.
