31 Sports Songs To Add To Your Workout Playlist
Being a great sports fan sometimes means you end up being a great couch potato, so staying fit can sometimes get in the way of eating chips and watching an NBA double-header. With the NFL moving into the playoffs and College Football Bowl Season all but behind us, many chubby sports fans have decided to try and shed some pounds by working out. Whether they’re running on treadmills, running down the street, pumping iron or… doing pilates, they need a soundtrack to go with their workout!
31 Sports Songs To Add To Your New Year’s Workout PlaylistWe came up with a couple dozen or so of the best songs related to sports that you should add to your workout playlist, just to give you that feeling like you’re at the game – or better yet, in the game! “Gonna Fly Now – Theme From Rocky” – by Bill Conti Is there a better workout starter than the song that helped Rocky run through Philly and climb up all those steps? The trumpets alone should get your blood flowing. “Eye of the Tiger” – by Survivor Any self-respecting Gen-Xer has to have this other Rocky theme song on their playlist. When Rocky prepares to beat up Clubber Lang, you’ll be preparing to beat up that set of weights! “All I Do Is Win” – DJ Khaled featuring Ludacris, Snoop Dogg, T-Pain and Rick Ross “Every time I step up on that stair-stepper, everybody’s hands go up!” “Crazy Train” – by Ozzy Osbourne It became fashionable in the ‘90s for NFL teams to start playing this song before their teams kick off. I want to say the Bucs started it when they opened Raymond James Stadium, but I’m wrong a lot. Either way – great running song! “Paradise By the Dashboard Light” – by Meat Loaf This song is great for your workout for several reasons.
- If you don’t run, you’ll look like Meat Loaf.
- It’s a great story about what every man wants at the start of a relationship and what every woman wants – and they’re not the same thing. Listen to the words – great story.
- Phil Rizzuto does play-by-play!
- It’s 8:25 long, which means you’re going to work up a crazy sweat!
