The Best Cher Tunes for a Workout

The Best Cher Tunes for a Workout

"You may want to place them on first to really get up your mood and help set the tone for a positive, upbeat workout."

Cher has recorded many types of music in her illustrious career, and a lot of her songs are great accompaniments to a workout, whether you’re dancing, walking, or hitting the gym. Here’s a playlist of the must-have songs, but there are many others that you also want to cue up depending on your tastes and activity.

You probably want to start with Cher’s “Believe” album, the dance-music genre runaway hit. Such tunes as the title track, “Believe,” and “Strong Enough” will have you moving your feet even if all you want to do is lounge around. Other strong tracks from this CD include “Love Is The Groove,” “Runaway,” “The Power,” and “Taxi Taxi.”

“Mermaids,” Cher’s hit film from about 20 years ago, stands the test of time today, and so does its soundtrack. Two songs from the movie are essential for your workout playlist: “If I Could Turn Back Time” and “The Shoop Shoop Song (It’s In His Kiss).”

Then look to the earliest songs from Cher and Sonny Bono. “I Got You Babe” and “The Beat Goes On” are good for almost any occasion, but they are especially energetic tunes with a fast beat and a positive message. You may want to place them on first to really get up your mood and help set the tone for a positive, upbeat workout. Empower yourself by placing your favorite songs throughout the workout to assist your stamina. 

“Walking In Memphis” is a slower, truly beautiful tune. It’s one of the few cover songs that Cher has recorded, and it’s been included on a few of her greatest hits albums. It’s really nice to put on while warming up or cooling down for a workout.
