Ready to update last year’s overused workout playlist with some 2021 songs to get you moving? The right updates to your list can get things going again where they were starting to become stale. After all, there’s nothing wrong with the tunes you’ve been listening to when you hit the gym or head out for a run. But when you’ve been playing the same ones for a certain length of time, they can start to lose their motivational magic.

Time to Add Some 2021 Songs to Get You Moving

Ready to add 2021 songs to get you moving?  It’s a good idea to give them a listen in advance. After all, the tunes you choose will make or break your workout, so it’s not over the top of you to give them a test run before they get your approval.  Remember that liking a song and liking one in your workout playlist are two different things.  It’s one thing to enjoy belting out a ballad while you’re driving to work. It’s something else to find a song that practically forces your body to move to the beat!

To help you out, we’ve collected a list of some of the most popular 2021 songs to get you moving.  Listen to each one and see if you’re able to stay still in your seat or if you’re naturally inclined to move around.  Then, pay attention to how fast they get you moving.  After all, not all workouts – or parts of your workout – need the same type of music.  Think about the song and whether it’s building you up gradually in a way that is best for your warm-up, powering you up to push through your strength training, making you want to move faster for great cardio, or winding you down at the end of your workout for the day.

Which 2021 Songs to Get You Moving Will You Add to Your Playlist?

The following are some great additions to an existing list, or perfect 2021 songs to get you moving in an all-new playlist you’re creating from scratch.  As a small note in support of the artists and everyone else who helps to make these tunes happen, we can only recommend that you use an app or purchase the songs in a legitimate way to ensure that creators – and the lesser-paid members of the teams that edit, enhance, set-up and clean-up – can continue to afford to produce new songs and be compensated for the ones they’ve already made. Stepping down from the soapbox now!
