Hello! Happy Wednesday. Yes, I realize it’s been over a month since I’ve posted. But we all figured this would happen right? Life gets hectic, blog falls to the wayside. Anyway…

Thankfully my friend Kelly reminded me of a post I’ve been wanting to write for weeks – how to find FREE workout music.

I think everyone can agree that having an awesome workout playlist is the key to having a good workout. OK maybe not the key, but it’s still super important. My mix used to include a playlist of Brittany Spears, Ke$ha, and Adam Lambert. But after a while I got bored and needed something new.

So I tried streaming from Spotify and Rdio. Both apps have a large collection of different workout playlists, tailored for cardio, running, yoga etc. But if you’ve ever tried to stream anything at a gym, you’ll know that it is incredibly frustrating. I cannot tell you the amount of times I’ve wanted to throw my phone to the ground because I couldn’t get the music to play.

I finally had had enough and was ready to purchase new music when Jake reminded me to check out SoundCloud.com. SoundCloud, for those that aren’t familiar, is a website/social platform where anyone can upload music they’ve created.

So I searched “workout music”and was blown away by the results!

Free Workout Music

Tons of music, specifically for working out and a lot of it is free to download. You’ll have to do some listening. Not everything is great. But if you click on the orange play button you can listen to each track from your computer before downloading it.


My favorite so far is Shredz. All of their tracks are around 40 minutes, which is about how long I typically workout. For the last month or so, I’ve been mostly listening to Ep. 003 and Ep. 004.

And the best part is it’s completely free (and safe) to download. I just load up a playlist on my phone and I’m good to go. No streaming necessary.

That’s it for now. Let me know if you guys discover any other workout playlists on SoundCloud that I should check out!
