The 1990s: It was the age that birthed many a millennial, and also the root of some seriously great one-hit-wonders, pop icons, and hip hop and R&B legends. This is a blessing for your workout playlist, because creating a '90s mix allows for a diverse tracklist. You'll be running, biking, or hitting the weight bench with all the best throwback songs to pump you up. (Related: How to Craft the Ultimate Dance Party–Inspired Running Playlist)

This '90s workout music playlist features some chilled-out Counting Crows and Fatboy Slim (remember them?), plus the Beastie Boys' "Intergalactic." Hit your pop circuit with Backstreet Boys, Spice Girls, and Britney Spears, then rock out with Green Day, Sugar Ray, and Eve 6. Savage Garden will hit your guilty pleasure desires right on the nose. And since C+C Music Factory are famous for wanting two things—to make you sweat and to make everybody dance now—we couldn't resist adding them to the '90s workout music mix, too. Wind down with Ginuwine's "Pony" and a reminder from TLC to accept "No Scrubs." (Related: Get Jacked with The Rock's Weightlifting Playlist)
