For me, there is nothing worse than going to the gym and working out in silence! How unmotivational, boring and near enough impossible! Dramatic? I don’t think so! Not only do you need music to perform your best workout but you need the RIGHT music for it to be effective. We definitely don’t want to be working out to slow ballads that’s for sure. So here goes, my top five tracks that are a MUST for your gym playlist.
Taste – Tyga Ft. Offset
A new add for me, but one that I will not be removing. Tyga has set the bar high for this one and once it’s stuck in your head, you cannot get it out – great for an endurance workout!
Numb / Encore – JAY Z
A classic by the man himself, Mr JAY Z and what gives it that extra special touch was the
unique collaboration with Linkin Park. One of my favourites by the artists and definitely a track that gets your blood pumping.
Look Right Through – Storm Queen (MK Vocal Edit)
I love a mixed genre gym playlist, this is one of my favourites representing the House scene. Although slightly making me want to dance, this definitely is a ‘feel good’ gym track.
Gravity – DJ Fresh Ft. Ella Eyre
A song that’s perfect for cardio! With its fast pace your body is automatically trying to keep up with what you’re listening to. A great track which also pushes your body to its limits.
Do Like That – Korede Bello
Do Like That, representing the African culture, is one my favourites on my gym playlist. With its memorable melody line and clever production, it’s one that always has me feeling good. Great on leg day – especially squatting!
It was hard for me to whittle down my playlist to just five tracks, but there you have it! There were some close competitors, but one from each genre sums it all up. There’s nothing that motivates me more in the gym than music, so my playlist just has to be on point.
