15 Workout Songs For August 2016

Posted: Updated:

With the 2016 Olympics kicking off in Rio de Janeiro later this week, you can bet Team Canada is getting pumped up by playing some of their favourite tracks.

"'Boom! Shake The Room' is my go-to, like DJ Jazzy Jeff," Team Canada Beach Volleyball star Heather Bansley tells The Huffington Post Canada. Bansley also says fellow Canadian Justin Bieber is currently on her playlist rotation.

Other songs we suspect the athletes are listening to: this year's sultry Olympic song "Alma e Coração," which, when translated from Portuguese, means soul and heart, and Katy Perry's new chart topper "Rise."

In the slideshow below, we've rounded up 15 tracks that will make you feel like you're going for gold even if you're just going for a jog around the block.
