List Rules Any anime that would keep you excited and make you forget that you're even working out.

Believe it or not, there are many of us who watch anime while we exercise! For that reason, let's take a look at some great anime to watch while working out. This list focuses on exciting anime that can match your increased heartbeat while you're getting your sweat on. After all, you don't want to watch a boring romance anime while you're furiously pedaling on your bike!

Anime like Attack on Titan and My Hero Academia are great for working out because they provide heart-pounding action scenes. When it comes to music, the upbeat tempo of the songs in Initial D will definitely motivate you to keep on going. If you just want something mindless to watch in short bursts while you're exercising, maybe Pokemon would be a good choice!

Use this list as a recommendation guide for what anime to watch while exercising, but also vote up the series that you most agree would be good for working out.
