Dance Cardio Music: Your Perfect Playlist


For many gym goers, "workout music" is synonymous with "dance music." But most dance tracks clock in around 128 beats per minute (BPM), which is a little too fast for most dance cardio or step aerobic classes where complicated steps might require a little more time. This playlist focuses on a mix of songs—from the likes of Three 6 Mafia, Coldplay, and Ellie Goulding—in the 119-122 BPM range, just right for stepping to the beat.

Here's the full list, courtesy of, the web's most popular workout music website.

Three 6 Mafia & Kalenna - Shake My - 122 BPM

Company B - Fascinated - 119 BPM

The Cheetah Girls - Strut - 120 BPM
