  • “One More Night” by Maroon 5

    ("It's that new pump-up song that is sure to get the evening going. I’m telling you, throw this one on your loud speakers and you’ll see what I mean." - James Valentine)
  • "Money" by The Drums

    ("My workouts for tennis start long before I hit the first serve. I have to stretch, get to the court and start my practice in the right mindset. The Drums’ 'Money', gives a mellow yet upbeat feel to get me focused." - James Valentine)
  • "Money Grabber" by Fitz and the Tantrums

    ("When I focus on cardio, I need an up-tempo song to keep my legs moving at a quick speed. Plug in 'Money Grabber' by Fitz and the Tantrums and your legs will naturally get movin’." - Adam Levine)
  • "Bang Pop" by Free Energy

    ("I’m a firm believer in having fun while I work out but sometimes it’s hard to enjoy. For those days that I need a little kick, I play songs like Free Energy’s 'Bang Pop' to let loose." - James Valentine)
  • "Dead and Gone" by The Black Keys

    ("When you need a steady backbeat to focus on, The Black Keys' 'Dead and Gone' is the perfect song. I always listen to this track in the middle of a lengthy run to give me that extra boost of energy." - James Valentine)
  • "Bushwick Blues" by Delta Spirit

    ("Everyone has that song on their workout mix that they listen to when doing their favorite exercise. For me, its 'Bushwick Blues' by Delta Spirit, it’s a great song that I can really vibe to." - Adam Levine)
  • "Blame It" by Jamie Foxx feat. T-Pain

    ("Everyone has excuses when it comes to ditching out on a workout session. Instead of leaving and flaking on a workout, I just turn Jamie Foxx’s 'Blame It' on full volume." - Adam Levine)
  • "Fuck You" by Cee Lo Green

    ("Probably the most played song on my workout playlist is Cee Lo’s 'Fuck You.' It’s the perfect song to express my feelings to the track as I run lap after lap." - Adam Levine)
  • "Shake" by Game

    ("Every few weeks I like to push myself to new heights in the gym. 'Shake' is that song I listen to when I’m trying to improve my mile time or when I’m running long distance." - James Valentine)
  • "Roman's Revenge" by Nicki Minaj

    ("When I play tennis, I need my legs to be working as best as they can. To keep my tennis game in top shape, I throw on 'Roman’s Revenge' and go for a run. It’s the perfect song to keep my heart rate up." - James Valentine)
  • "Victoria" by Eve 6

    ("Eve 6 has a great sound that I like to listen to when I work out. I highly recommend taking a listen to them when out for a jog." - James Valentine)
  • “Daft Punk Is Playing At My House” by LCD Soundsystem

    ("'Daft Punk Is Playing At My House' is my anthem when I step onto the tennis court. It has a tempo that pumps me up for some friendly competition." - James Valentine)
  • "Shake Me Down" by Cage the Elephant

    ("After a long workout, I need a final song to wrap everything up. To slow down, settle my heart rate and wind down on my last exercise, I listen to 'Shake Me Down.'" - Adam Levine)
  • “Skinny Love” by Bon Iver

    ("I can’t quite put my finger on it, but there’s something I love about Bon Iver’s 'Skinny Love'. His voice is very relaxing and the smooth acoustic guitar is perfect for early morning yoga sessions." - Adam Levine)
  • “Put your Records On” by Corinne Bailey Rae

    ("Although I love traditional yoga music, I also like to mix up my playlists. One of the songs I really enjoy is 'Put Your Records On' by Corinne Bailey Rae. It really helps me to focus and relax my breathing." - Adam Levine)
  • "Time to Pretend" by MGMT

    ("MGMT’s 'Time To Pretend' is always on when I’m cooling down from a workout. It helps to decrease my heart rate but also gives me enough energy to power through the last few minutes." - James Valentine)
