Motivational Gym Playlist

Motivational Gym Playlist

Over recent months I keep forgetting to take my Ipod with me to the gym which means that I haven’t had any motivational music to keep me going while I pedal away at the bikes or attempt to run for anything over a minute *oops*. Instead I have to rely on the music playing at the gym which in all honesty isn’t quite to my taste, or the right sort of motivation that I need to work hard. With my marathon next week *eek* I am trying to build up playlists to keep me going over eight hours.

I put together a collection of some of the tracks which keep me motivated in the gym. These aren’t neccessarily the types of tracks I would listen to at home but they have good beats and are great to get me moving at the gym.

    Haha, ok I love you for the simple fact, you’ve got D12 on the list. Got some great picks, it’s quite handy to have a YouTube playlist cos without a doubt, you’ve always got your phone x

    Oh my God I have had D12 stuck in my head for about 5 days and this so did not help lol! Great playlist though all I would do is remove Daniel Bedingfield (because I have a massive irrational hate of him) and give you these little gems as suggestions: Cher Lloyd-Want You Back, and Macklemore and Ryan Lewis-Same Love! x

    A good playlist is a must at the gym! I love a bit of Beyonce for motivation.
