25 Motivational Christian Workout Songs

Exercise is good for the mind, body, soul and spirit. It keeps you focused on a goal and you can evaluate your progress relatively easily with a good eating plan. However, if you are like me, it is nice to play music while you run, lift weights, bike or whatever you do for exercise. Christian music alone can connect you with God. Combine Christian music with the determination to exercise and you can develop a passion to stay fit! Here are 25 Christian songs from “pop” to “metal” that can motivate you to push through those last bench presses or that last half mile of your run!

2. Fire Flight – Unbreakable

Favorite Lyric – “Sometimes it's hard to just keep going, but faith is moving without knowing. Can I trust what I can’t see to reach my destiny? I want to take control but I know better.

1. As I Lay Dying – Overcome

Favorite Lyric – “Some say to release it, forget about your past. Instead we count the cost, it's part of us. That doesn't mean that we cannot move on. It's just a memory of what we once were. No matter what it is we've faced It's now part of us (part of us). We can overcome.”
