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 very traditional (or was) when I would hear "How Great Thou Art" - thought it had to be sung solemnly and slow. Then I heard it sung by Paul Paloche and realized this beautiful song should be sung joyfully, with a beat and loud! I listen to it while walking and it makes me happy and adds a bounce to my step. I also love Michael W. Smith's "You are Holy". Thanks for this blog - found some new songs to celebrate life, God and myself! - 5/23/2013   3:02:12 AM

    What a great post! I sing many of these songs with my worship team at church. You really hit the mark with the comment "many of these songs are uplifting and encouraging in both their titles and words, making them motivational for just about anyone". That is the whole point when we are working out - to be uplifted and know that we are honoring God by taking care of the body that he gave to us. Great post! Thank you so much! I look forward to downloading some of the songs that I do not already have. - 5/22/2013   9:41:42 AM

    This is a great list of songs and musicians! I would add Colton Dixon, Third Day, and Casting Crowns (bands) to the list - they have many songs that are encouraging, support our faith - giving you something to think about, and have good beats. Thanks so much for this blog! So glad for some other music ideas!
