Good Workout Songs

There's two ways a song can become motivational to someone: one is through the lyrics, the other is through the beats and the rhythm. There are more than enough songs on both sides to help you through the long hours of grueling physical exertion, and get into the shape that you desire.

Well one thing is clear - if you've ever been to a gym, they will always play songs with a faster beat or a higher volume. Workout songs tend to be louder as they somehow push people to work harder.
Good Songs to Play While Working Out
Some songs do tend to make people exercise harder. Gyms have always played songs which have a faster beat, a louder bass, tougher music, or hard vocals. Somehow, their intensity increases our own while working out. We tend to feel more energetic when we hear certain songs and then we push ourselves harder in the gym. A lot of gyms used remixed versions of softer songs which again lends to them a higher intensity.
Commonly accepted tracks are basically of two genres: hip-hop and rock. So while listing out the songs, I'll classify them in three groups: rock workout songs, hip hop workout songs and others.

What you can do is either get the music on to your music player, or give the playlist to your gym directly. They will have most, if not all, of the songs I've mentioned. That way you don't have to block out everything by putting headphones on while you work out.
