Fall Workout Playlist

Hooray for cooler weather (at least in the mornings and at night)! Fall and winter in Florida are the seasons where I’m most motivated to get outside and moving, and actually look forward to walks/jogs (not quite at the full blown running stage).

My workout playlists, just like the tunes I listen to when I’m not working out, are always a mix of genres and from different decades. Here are the jams getting me moving this season.


  • “Ex’s and Oh’s” – Elle King
  • “Same Old Love” – Selena Gomez
  • “Levels” – Nick Jonas
  • “Black Magic” – Little Mix
  • “Electric Love” – BORNS
  • “Rolling Stone” – Reuben and the Dark
  • “Lay It All On Me” – Rudimental feat. Ed Sheeran
  • “Hot Stuff” – Donna Summer
  • “Pretty Fly (For A White Guy)” – The Offspring
  • “What Do You Mean?” – Justin Bieber
  • “Cake By The Ocean” – DNCE
  • “Runnin’ Down A Dream” – Tom Petty
  • “Strangers” – Langhorne Slim
  • “Ship to Wreck” – Florence and the Machines

What tunes are getting you moving this month?

  • Rachel, thanks for sharing this playlist! I love that your tunes are so versatile coming from different genres and eras. We made this 90s workout playlist a few months ago but I still love listening to it! http://topazandsapphire.com/the-best-workout-playlist-for-90s-babies/

    • Thank you! I’m all about mixing the decades and genres for playlists! Love your 90s playlist, so many good tunes!

  • Excellent playlist! I love that you have The Offspring in there (my fave!) and I have Same Old Love by SG in my head all the time these days.

    • Thanks! It’s always good to have a mix of old and new in there!

  • lol @ The Offspring

    • Hey, sometimes you need some good throwback rock jams :)

  • Great playlist! I love What do you Mean by Justin Bieber (and I’m not ashamed to admit it!)

    • I wasn’t crazy at first but then the radio kept playing it and it kept getting stuck in my head and has since grown on me!

  • Heather Gullett Denniston

    Love it. That is great! I am listening to a Bieber station on Pandora. I thumbs downed most of the Bieber tracks and now have the BEST playlist for working out. :-)

    • Haha that’s so great! Which tracks are your favorite?

  • Great list!! I’m always looking for a good workout list.

    • Thanks! Hope it helps in motivating you to workout!

  • oh i love that black magic song! so fun.

  • Liz

    I have almost every single one of these on my playlist already!! Great minds think alike ;)

    • Yay! Yes they do :) Do you have any other favorites?

  • I’ve got some new songs to check out now but My husband and I sing “Pretty Fly For A White Guy” sometimes but since my hubby is Puerto Rican i’ll change the lyrics to Pretty Fly For A Puerto Rican Guy.”

    • Haha, I love it! I hope you find some new good tunes from the playlist!

  • Such a great list! I’m really loving “Ex’s and Oh’s” and “Lay It All On Me” right now!

    • Thanks, Ashley! I’m loving them too, they get me moving!

  • Great playlist, girl.
    I love switching up my playlist seasonally.

    • Everyone has different songs that get them moving but I think this one has a good mixture of genres and decades to help with that. I hope this playlist helps get that pep in your step!

    LOVE LOVE LOVE this playlist! Thanks for the motivation!

  • I love the variety in this! Never would have thought to put Selena Gomez, Donna Summer, and Tom Petty on the same playlist… but it works!

  • This is a great list, thanks for sharing.

  • Thanks, Carmody! The songs definitely get me up and moving! I’m totally with you on the cake – I don’t think there’s ever a time I’m NOT in the mood for cake :) I’ll have to give Cupcake Wars a try. What would your dream cupcake be?
