Are you ready to get into shape before Spring/Summer hit? Let the music motivate you, here’s a great list to get you going.

I’m not trying to say disco is the way to a good workout, so let’s get into shape with some good classic rock music. If you’re a workout enthusiast you know repetitious motion is a key to a good workout so let’s dive right in.

These songs are for those into a strenuous cardio exercise and looking for that +100 pulse rate.

Songs with vocals:

  • “Roll on Down the Highway” – Bachman Turner Overdrive
  • Call Me the Breeze” – Lynyrd Skynyrd


  • “Soul Sacrifice” – Santana
  • Toad” – Cream
  • Steamer Lane Breakdown” – The Doobie Brothers

The next set of songs are those running in second gear yet still getting a steady beat at a medium activity rate.

  • “Highway to Hell” -AC/DC
  • China Grove” – The Doobie Brothers


  • Anji” – Paul Simon

For those still on training wheels or use the bunny slope skiing these songs fit for the low activity rate.
