There’s no pick-me-up as profound—or profoundly simple—as exercise. It’s not just that your body’s built for it; it’s the pride and satisfaction that comes from getting out and moving in the face of the distractions that might otherwise hold you back. The tracks here aren’t bound by style or era, but they share an energy and sense of optimism that make great companions for whatever workout you might be tackling, from weights at the gym to walks in the woods. So long as you’re moving, you’re good. Our editors update picks here regularly, so if you hear something you like, take a second and add it to your library.
