There comes a point in the day when we finally unchain ourselves from our desks here at FanLabel. Like the post-work routines of millions of others, it’s time to head to the gym or studio or wherever you sweat it out and stretch it out. 

Though we’ve spent the whole day previewing and programming music into the FanLabel app, being the music fanatics that we are, workout time means popping in the earbuds and cranking up our favorite workout songs. We figured you do this, too. And we wanted to offer you our staff recommendations for your next visit to the gym, tailored to your particular workout style, of course!

Heavy Hitters

These songs are perfect for those high-intensity workouts, especially weight training or boxing. Nothing gets you in the zone more than these hip-hop anthems.

  • Nelly, “Grillz”
  • Denzel Curry, “Ricky”
  • DaBaby, “Suge”
  • IDK, “Digital”

House Heat

For long runs, bike rides, or aerobic sessions, you need something fast-paced to keep the beat. House is the ideal genre for these endurance workouts, as it provides both energy and rhythm to keep you going.

  • Merk & Kremont, “Sushi”
  • Shiba San, “Okay”
  • Yaeji, “Raingurl”
