The Nine Best Running Songs Ever

A banging playlist can take a gym workout from a monotonous chore to a fun stress-buster. What we want to know is: which song really gets your blood pumping?

It may not feel like it (why is it still so bloody cold?), but summer is coming, and with it the familiar sense of dread that comes with the prospect of getting in a bikini. But, ladies, we’re all in this together, so let’s help each other out, yeah?

We’ve asked team Marie Claire what their favourite gym/running track is (see below for our top tunes) and in return we want to know which song really gets you going on the treadmill?

Marie Claire’s gym playlist:

Olivia Cox, beauty assistant: David Guetta – Titanium

Rebecca Twomey, online writer: Lady Gaga – Just Dance

Tessa Solomons, booking editor: Kelis – Milkshake

Lisa Potter, online assistant: Jay-Z and Kanye West – N**as in Paris
