Best Walking Songs

What are the best songs for walking?

The best exercise songs for walking are ones that set the tempo of your stride. In fact, most walkers use music to help set their speed, which is why understanding the beats per minute (BPM) of a song can be beneficial. Most walkers will want to choose music with a BPM between 100 to 140 BPM. A stroll walker going about 3 miles an hour (mph) should pick music that is between 115 to 120 BPM. Power walkers going about 4.5 mph should pick music that is between 135 and 140 BPM which are located on our jogging music page. Try to choose songs that are close in BPM, to ensure your speed stays constant. It is also good to choose a slightly slower song for the beginning and ending to warm up and cool down.

Exercise music should provide motivation and encouragement. Always be sure to have enough songs in your collection for the duration of your walk. You do not want to run out of songs at the conclusion of your exercise, since this is the critical moment you may need them the most. Songs range in length from about 3 to 5 minutes long, so plan on using at least 10 to 12 songs for a 45 minute workout.

Below you will find different music genres of the best walking songs. For your convenience, we have compiled the songs in a playlist, making it easy for you to listen to a sample or purchase a song.
