The Best Workout Songs, According to These Fitness-Obsessed Students

It’s no secret that a playlist can make or break a workout. That one fire chorus or incredible beat drop can pump the adrenaline from 0 to 100 (even when you’re mentally unsure of being able to finish that last set). So to find how our community stays strong during even the most difficult workouts, we asked a few of the attendees at our #PrimarkSetGo Workout Classes at AKT Studio in New York City and Trillfit in Boston to tell us what their go-to motivational songs are. Read their picks, shop their favorite Primark products, and then add the entire Spotify playlist to your phone, stat.

Sorry” by Demi Lovato

Essential workout item: Primark Pink Space Dyed Cropped Leggings ($13)

“This song makes me feel strong. I’ve really struggled with having a positive body image, but Demi’s music has been part of the reason why I’m starting to feel confident. I love The Fitness Marshall’s video featuring this song. I always feel happier and stronger when it comes on. It’s amazing how much music can impact your mood and motivation!” — Brooke Sutton, Simmons College, class of 2019

Fourth of July” by Fall Out Boy

Essential workout item: Primark Blue Triton Juicer Bottle ($7)

“This song builds up really fast and is super powerful. It makes me feel energized and motivates me to push myself. I especially love to listen to it when I’m running, because every time the song speeds up, I feel like I should too!” — Norah Murphy, Parsons, class of 2018

New Rules” by Dua Lipa

Listen to this song during: Zumba

“I love to work out to this song because it’s such a bop! Also, the message behind the song is relatable and pushes me to put more into my workout. I listen to this song at Zumba. It’s very rhythmic.” — Meryl Prendergast, North Eastern University, class of 2021

Uptown Funk” by Bruno Mars

Listen to this song during: Spin Class

Essential workout item: Primark Black High-Shine Leggings ($10)

“Sometimes if I listen to songs I really like while I work out, I forget about the soreness and power through. Plus, a good jam in the background can get you more into it when the beat aligns with your counts! When I work out and listen to this song, it feel less like a workout and more like a fun dance party.” — Soni Solano, Fashion Institute of Technology, class of 2019

Stronger” by Kanye West

Listen to this song during: Cardio

Essential workout item: Primark Stereo Headphones ($7)

“If I ever hit a stagnant point in my workout, this song definitely picks me up—it’s very upbeat and motivational. Whenever I listen to the song, I want to push myself to bike a little bit harder.”  — Emily O’Brien, Fordham University, class of 2021
