Motivating Christian Music Workout Playlist

There is nothing like a good playlist to motivate you in your workout. However, I’ve listened to my fair share of music that has a great beat and pumps me up, but has less than uplifting lyrics. As much as I want to say the lyrics don’t effect me, they still get into my head and definitely don’t have me thinking about glorifying God.

When I was growing up, the only Christian music I knew of all sounded the same. There wasn’t a mix of genres, and while the lyrics were good, it definitely wouldn’t have been my first choice to dance/ get movin’ to. Now days, I’m pleasantly surprised at the broad array of Christian music options. I love that there are so many artist/bands that each have a different sound to fit my mood. I love a good Hillsong Worship sesh when I’m cleaning the house or driving to work, and when I’m working out I love the more upbeat Hillsong Young and Free.

Once I found Hillsong Young and Free, I was determined to find more upbeat songs like it. That’s what motivated me to begin my hunt for a solid Christian music workout playlist that I could take with me on my runs, to the gym, and even while cleaning the house or doing a HIIT workout in my living room. You can find a variety of the types of workouts I like to do and create myself HERE. Recently, I was on the hunt for a good quality but inexpensive speaker to play my music when I workout at home. I don’t like having to deal with headphones and keeping my iPhone on me when doing HIIT workouts because the wires always get all tangled and rip my headphones out of my ear. Talk about annoying. BUT! My husband just got a portable waterproof bluetooth speaker that connects to your computer, laptop, or phone and it works so well! I can even use it out at the pool when swimming laps without worrying about it breaking from water damage. If you’re interested in a good quality bluetooth speaker, I’ll leave the one I have linked below.

Now, time for the playlist! It currently has 25 songs and is a total of 1 hour and 36 minutes. I am always adding to this playlist, though, so in a month or two I’ll post a Christian Music Workout Playlist #2 with updated music. This christian music workout playlist #1 has a variety of artists, 12 to be exact, so you’re sure to find songs you like. ENJOY! 🙂

    Great idea to post a playlist. Ive really wanted something uplifting to listen to while working out. I tried to access the playlist but it wont load. It says spotify not working or it may have moved:(

    • MeredithH says

      Thanks so much Julie! I hope you like the songs 🙂 and I will look into fixing that, thank you for letting me know! Do you have a Spotify account? I wonder if you have to be logged in to Spotify for it to work because I checked the link and it loaded perfectly for me. I’m not sure what else I could do to fix it? 🙁

    This is just what I needed! I was getting so burnt out listening to the same old upbeat songs for workout motivation…but I’m excited to check this playlist out 🙂

    • MeredithH says
