1. 'Talk That Talk,' Rihanna Feat. Jay-Z
Picturing Rihanna's enviable bikini bod alone should be enough to get you motivated to jump on the stair climber! But if you need an extra push, pop in her new 'Talk That Talk' album title track with Jay-Z. The Stargate beat bumping through your headphones will help you not just talk that talk, but walk that walk, too.
2. 'International Love,' Pitbull Feat. Chris Brown
"You can't catch me, boy!" How's that for an opening line to get you sprinting on the treadmill? Pitbull's fast-spitting rhymes and C-Breezy's soaring hook sure puts us in the "international" mood. We're thinking bikinis on an exotic beach somewhere ... time to do some sit-ups!
3. 'Breathing,' Jason Derulo
We all know how important our breathing is to hanging in there during a grueling cardio workout -- or while holding those poses during a yoga session. Keep up with the tempo of this Jason Derulo track and you'll be struggling to catch your breath! Just make sure not to push yourself so hard that you get injured like poor Jason.
4. 'Good Feeling,' Flo Rida
We'll admit, part of the appeal of this song is the "get amped" music video. Flo Rida shows off his impressive pecs and jacked biceps while running shirtless all around town, encouraging an entire crowd to follow behind him for his music video marathon. And then there's the boxing, cycling and surfing included in the vid... But besides the song's visuals, you can't help but catch that contagious good feeling about yourself while listening to this upbeat tune.
5. 'Turn Me On,' David Guetta Feat. Nicki Minaj
David Guetta and Nicki Minaj team up to make one high-energy, electro-house anthem to get us moving. If your "body needs a hero" like Nicki's does, crank the volume on this hit to turn it up and turn it out during your next workout!
6.'What Doesn't Kill You (Stronger),' Kelly Clarkson
The lyrics say it all in this Kelly Clarkson pump-up anthem. "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger/ Stand a little taller ... What doesn't kill you makes a fighter/ Footsteps even lighter" -- it's almost as if she wrote the song about getting in shape! And listening to the 'American Idol's powerhouse vocals almost makes us feel stronger.
7. 'Headlines,' Drake
"I might be too strung out on compliments/ Overdosed on confidence" ... wouldn't that be a nice reality to have! Listen up while Drizzy gives us a lesson in unabashed self love. Whether your goal is slimming-down, bulking-up or getting ready for that half-marathon, confidence is key!
8. 'Go Home,' Will.i.am Feat. Mick Jagger and Wolfgang Gartner
This impressive trifecta of musicians has combined forces to breathe new life into the age old saying, "You can go hard, or you can go home." The next time you want to quit before finishing up that last mile or feel too pooped to keep pumping, this hypnotic beat and its motivating lyrics will get you through to the finish line.
9. 'Pass at Me,' Timbaland Feat. Pitbull
If you want to make people stop and stare as you pass on by, this Timbaland and Pitbull collab is the song to make you break a sweat. Known for his infectious beats, producer extraordinaire Timbo's rhythm will help you hit your stride and make them say "Oh, oh my god."
10. 'Sexy and I Know It,' LMFAO
What new year's workout mix would be complete without LMFAO's sexy body anthem? You can't help but get its repetitious lyrics like, "Girl, look at that body/ Girl, look at that body/ Girl, look at that body/ I work out!" stuck in your head. Besides being sexy and knowing it, SkyBlu and Redfoo teach us another important lesson -- exercise should be fun! So, "Wiggle, wiggle, wiggle, wiggle, wiggle!"
