The Best 2010s Workout Songs—According to My 10 Years Teaching Fitness

2010 Workout Songs

The 2010s produced some of the best workout songs. Trust me—I taught fitness classes nearly that entire decade. It also launched to fame some of my favorite bands and artists that I like to use for motivational, high-energy, high-emotion workout songs: Fall Out Boy, Imagine Dragons, and Panic! at the Disco to name a few. 

If you’re looking for powerful workout songs from the 2010s that will pump you up, this list has you fully covered. Here are my favorite 2010s workout songs—great for spin class, workout routines, stretching, and more! I’ve broken the songs up by their BPM (beats per minute). 

  • 140 or more BPM: Great options for sprint songs and HIIT exercises. 
  • 120-140 BPM: Great for marches, jumps, and large muscle group exercises like squats and lunges. 
  • 120 or less BPM: Great for climbs, yoga, and stretching.
