Christian Workout Music: 100 Uplifting Songs

By , SparkPeople Blogger
Music is important to many people. It can pick you up when you're feeling down, motivate you when you need a little push, and inspire you to go the extra mile during a workout. We love to share our favoriate workout music list suggestions here on dailySpark, and we frequently receive requests for Christian exercise music. So I've compiled a list of my top 100 Christian workout songs. 

There are many genres of Christian music, and even if you don't consider yourself to be religious or spiritual, you may discover that in addition to "clean lyrics," many of these songs are uplifting and encouraging in both their titles and words, making them motivational for just about anyone.
 
Listening to uplifting music can help anyone feel better and more positive about life. It can provide motivation to move forward with your healthy lifestyle goals, too. So whether you are feeling depressed, stressed, discouraged, or angry, this list of songs with positive messages can turn your focus back on all that is good in your life.

I'm with Joanie52. . . I love the Gaithers. I discovered a group called Ernie Haase and Signature Sound. They are in my 'exercise' music list. :) I also love Still Feelin' Fine by The Booth Brothers. Can't help but dance to that one. Greater by Mercy Me also sets me to dancing! Report
this list is extensive, I'm off to listen to some of the music samples before I purchase. Thank you all for the motivational music list... Report
Thank you for posting this list! These are such great songs, for anyone...not just Christians. If you're grumpy, listen to a positive message and maybe you will be a little less so. : ) Report
Yes! LOVE these songs... so happy I found this article! :) Report
This is a great list! Will be adding some of these to my playlist.

TIDESONG- you were welcome to keep scrolling. Fine that religion is not your thing but clearly discrimination is. *smh Report
Good music! Report
JOANNIE52
My Favorites are the Happy Goodmans--all their music and the 1970's Gaither Trio music--can't keep up with them anymore but they sure kept me moving over the years (showing my age!) Report
I love, Love, LOVE to run listening to Rend Collective! Report
KATHRYN19521
For the tech challenged...how do i load these tunes to my ipod? Report
Thank you so much! This is a great list! I would add "How you Live" by Point of Grace and "Overcomer" by Mandisa. Report
APPLEGREENGIRL
Glow in the Dark by Jason Gray will get you MOVING!! Report
Soul on Fire by Third Day is another good one but it did come out after this list was published. Report
KSISCHANGING
Thanks for your list! I also love "Eye On It" by Toby Mac Report
I'd like to see religion kept separate from SparkPeople posts. This is not a Christian (or Jewish or Buddhist or whatever) site. While I appreciate that this works for some people, I think its place is in a specific Christian-based group on SP rather than general where everyone is exposed to it. Report
I love these songs! Thank you for compiling them in one place. Report
Taken a few hours longer than I thought it would take, but I think I have most all of these songs in "SP Christian Workout Music" playlist on Spotify (I use the free version).. Link is below. My playlist includes a few extra song that I remembered from other musicians that didn't seem to be represented here, like Hillsong (which I think is from Australia??). I don't know if this link works outside the USA, sorry about that - but if you can get Spotify in your country and the link doesn't work, then I guess you can look for me by user msdrpepper.

If it doesn't work here (I don't know if SparkPeople will let me add the html to make this clickable) then you may need to copy and paste... Report
"Shine" by Salvador is a great tune. Report
My new favorite is "Overcommer" by Mandissa. Didn't see it when I breezed through the list. Definitely love christian inspirational and will post this to my FB page. Report
Thank you I will come back and make a play list Woo Hoo. I am a Christian and love music while I walk !!! Report
Shake by Mercy Me is a fun, positive song. Report
If they added more gospel artists to this list, people would have music to run and jump to. Let me suggest papa san, Isreal New breed. They have lively upbeat music, perfect for intense workouts. Report
Great idea. I always listen to Christian music. Pandora while im outside if i can while i walk. But usually im talking w earphone in 1 of my ears. For safety reasons. Report
DAWNC1974
Oh! and From the Day by I AM THEY Report
DAWNC1974
Don't forget this fun one: Happy by Delirious? Report
Listening to "Overcomer" by Mandisa can inspire me to run faster and jump higher! Report
SHREEM16
Great list!! I already have some on my playlist. I know others on here are saying "Why Christian Music", "Why call it this [if you are apart of another religion]", "Some of these songs are slow". If you actually go through these artist library of albums you will fine upbeat christian/gospel/worship music. It's just like any zumba classes or anything similar, your going to have warmup music, cardio music and cool off (slow) music. It's about finding what works for out. I do a mix of Christian/gospel with a little of inspiration music that other non-christian artist that get's me up and moving that pushed me to where I want to go. Report
God's Not Dead by the Newsboys, anything by Demon Hunter, Skillet's Not Gonna Die, Red's Die For You and Breathe Into Me. Report
For those who run..Thousand Foot Krutch has some good stuff..one of their songs that is a great motivation when I run is called MOVE..and there are so many more by them..a little more on the heavy metal side. Report
SMILEYGRL28
great list. I have quite a few and listened to others on ITunes. So great to find upbeat Christian music for workouts, my goal is to keep worldly music out of my playlists which can be a challenge especially for workout songs Report
VIGILANTONE
Great list, thank you for putting it together for those of us that wish to listen to Christian music. I appreciate the time it took you to do so..... Report
MYSTAKIN
Build Your Kingdom Here by Rend Collective is a good fast past song for brisk walking or running. Report
What an awesome list to have on SparkPeople! Report
This is a great list, but my go to artist when I'm running is Keith Green. Love his music! RIP Report
ZESTFUL60
One of my favorites is Light Up the Sky by the Afters and so many others that you have listed. Report
Great list!! Thanks!

I also really like Building 429's "Where I Belong". Some of it may be a little slow for working out, but the chorus is a good pace and the message is definitely so uplifting! Report
This is great to list the songs like this, but is there a way to print them out? for me, it's easier to have a printed list and then go to iTunes, listen and purchase the tunes.

thanks Report
Awesome!! I was glad to see Britt Nicole was on this list. Report
love it! and would like to add royal tailor ready set go and capital kings I feel so alive =) hugs! Report
HDPUNTAGORDA
I have to agree I love the list but would also add KJ-52, and Family Force 5, Dc Talk, etc... Love Newsboys, Toby Mac, Mandisa, Natlie Grant, Mercy Me, Jeremy Camp, Katinas,....Love, Love, Love Christain music Report
THEAMAZINGMRSA
While I applaud the intent of this list, it's greatly lacking. These songs may be fine for someone who just walks or does light activity, but for someone like me who trains for half-marathons, these songs are too slow. Though I try to listen to only Christian music, for working out purposes, it's just not possible with mainstream Christian music. I really wish more artists would step up to the plate and make more engaging and lively music as opposed to just the bland music you hear on the radio nowadays. Report
my favorite song is More by Matthew West. When I have a bad day, I turn up the volume and just remember that someone loves me. crazy, I know Report
PETEBUCHWALD
This new CD is my favorite workout music! Remixes of christian hits. https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/p
