DJ Commodus' Always on the Run Playlist

Posted: Updated:

For this mix I decided to put together some of my favorite tracks that combine the high energy of dance music with melodic vocals that will have you singing along. These songs are jam-packed with big build-ups and high BPMs to get you pumped up. They're meant to get your blood flowing, raise your endorphin levels, and ultimately make you feel good!

Most people look at exercising as a chore. But with the right soundtrack, you will leave the gym feeling inspired. It's amazing how music can enhance your mood. It has the power to evoke all kinds of emotions and feelings. The idea is to listen to music that stimulates you. Music that makes you want to dance!

This playlist is heavy on the sweet-sounding hooks. You may get caught singing along while you're on the treadmill. No need to be embarrassed. You're expressing yourself, which is beautiful! Sing. Smile. It's healthy and it's contagious. Get in the zone and pass on the good vibes!
