It’s no secret, that music is a very helpful and powerful tool to influence motivation. The influence of music to improve ones performance at certain activities or to influence someones mood is scientifically proven. While classic music enables you to learn more efficiently and helps your brain to soak up information, there are other musical patterns, that results in increased motivation for sports or helps you to endure. Just take a look around next time you’re hitting the gym – almost everybody is wearing headphones, listening to their favorite music. I’m pretty sure, that boredom is not the cause, it’s the motivational benefits you get from listening to music.

I can’t tell the exact effects on the human brain that result from the songs I’ve listed below, but they sure give me a great motivational boost for a workout or run. So why don’t give it a try and see if it helps you to get motivated?

Below you find a list with my favorite workout-music, you can import it directly to your Spotify account or manually add the songs to your own playlist on whatever service it is you’re using. It is the same list, that has been posted on the blog before but putting it on an extra page makes it way more accessible and user-friendly.

Put your headphones on and get going!
