Gym Radio

Best Workout Songs of all times!

Collection of the best workout songs in the world, recommended by our community, gyms and the internet. Playlists are updated weekly.


Music is 28% of the overall workout experience, but that's just a number. As frequent gym-goers, we intuitively know how important it is to stay focused and motivated during the workout and the right music can help a lot.

You know what, it is sometimes more difficult to get yourself determined and driven enough to do the workout than the WORKOUT itself! It will be better for us to do gym and think of it as some high school dance where you just follow the rhythm and move along.

With GYM Radio, we are building massive workout songs playlists for the last 6 years to improve your workouts and keep you in the flow. It's been hard, but we have collected tens of thousands of songs. But not all gyms are playing the GYM Radio yet, so we have decided to build also a great YouTube channel for all people who want to workout with great music.

Fight Workout Playlist

Boxing gyms, fight, and martial arts gyms are using the GYM Radio Fight channel to keep people focused. This playlist is an excerpt from our Fight Channel.

The Fight Music Playlist contains very high energy and high BPM Rap and Hip hop songs. The best songs from this playlist:

Neffex - Fight Back

We love Neffex. His songs are always full of energy and motivation. Check also his other songs.

Bonez - Warrior (Ultimate Fighter Theme)

This is the ultimate Fighter theme song. Go and fight.

Bazanji - Fed Up

"Fuck local radio stations, I got more plays than all of these rappers combined

FAQ and Blog

  • Q: Can I use Spotify at my gym?

    No. We love Spotify, but the answer is no, you can’t. Read the Spotify Terms - "personal, non-commercial, entertainment use only." This means it can’t be played in public places such as gyms.

    But don't worry, we have the same workout music and we are hand-picking every song to make sure it really creates the motivational experience. Our playlists often cut through different genres, which is quite unique and motivates everyone. Read more.

  • Q: How can I play music legally at my gym?

    GYM Radio licenses all necessary rights from music rights holders whenever possible so that you don't have to. But in some countries, you must have a “public performance” right license. You can get it from your local collection societies. Read more

  • Q: Is it for free?

    No. We have a free option tough, but it is not intended to be used in a gym as it doesn't cover the necessary licenses for the background music.

  • Q: Is it for gyms only?

    Yes. Our product is only for gyms (businesses) that can use it to play workout background music and monetize the airtime with the custom jingles and announcements.
