Let Music Fuel Your Workout

Tri 012

Music can make or break my workout; I’m more likely to win the lottery than I am to forget my headphones for the gym. Without music, I don’t think that I would have the motivation to workout at the intensity that I do because music fuels my workouts. I don’t have a gym partner so it’s just me, my headphones and a carefully selected playlist. Music gives me the power to do one more rep when my muscles feel weak and to do one more minute on the treadmill when my legs are starting to feel heavy and want to slow down.

Like most people, I have very little storage space on my phone so I use Spotify to stream music, and I have a premium account which means no adverts and I can listen to music offline.  As for my taste in music? It varies. I grew up listening to Reggae and Disco music with my parent and this has heavily influenced my taste in music because the music I enjoy the most are the songs that are upbeat and uplifting, which is perfect for when I am in the gym.

If you have made it your new year’s resolution to become fitter, healthier or join the gym in 2016, make sure you have a music playlist that motivates you to hustle hard! I’ve pulled together a few songs from my 50 odd strong gym playlist to help you to achieve your health and fitness goals in 2016.
