Now I'm going to be completely honest, me and fitness definitely have a love hate relationship. I love the feeling after I've worked out and I love the results but the hardest thing for me is motivating myself to actually go and then to do a full workout when I am there. Believe it or not when I was younger I was massively into fitness and eating healthy. I was a swimmer and I trained everyday some days before and after school. However after 10years of this my love for the sport died and so did all my training. I often do regret this and wish I had persevered with it however at the time it just wasn't for me anymore. Now I find the best way to motivate myself is through music so I find that when I work out I have a select few songs that keep me going.
Drake- One Dance
Kind of a new one for me and not one I don't think many people would associate with a workout. This song literally reminds me of summer and instantly puts me in a good mood. I find this one is perfect when I am doing workouts such as weights (only light ones) or rowing.
Beyoncé- Crazy In Love
To be honest that should read absolutely anything at all by Beyoncé. They literally put me in such a great mood and find that when they start playing I am so much more motivated and actually work harder. I can listen to this song during any work out I love it. Has been a favourite for a long time and I don't think that is going to change anytime soon.
Prodigy- Fire Starter
The song that when I'm slacking makes me kick myself into gear. The high energy and beats are just so addictive. I once listened to a while album by them while I was in a spin class and by the end of it I honestly don't think I have ever sweated so much in my life. Will definitely keep you going.
Kanye West- Fade/ Workout Plan
Had to list these 2 as I cannot pick between them. Workout Plan is one of my favourites and has been for many years. I just find it such an easy song to work out too mainly when I am running. Fade. Well what can I say the music video in itself is all the motivation anyone needs. I actually find this one great for dancing. I'm no where near as good as the music video though.
Alanis Morissette- Hand In My Pocket
Every time I go running the first song I put on to start is this one and honestly I have no idea why. I absolutely love the song however again it doesn't exactly scream workout. I think as it is quietly a chilled and relaxing song it just helps to warm me up and gets me ready for my run ahead. Think this one will be played for many years.
