My fave workout songs
This has been a request from a number of you lovely readers…
Apologies for taking some time to get around to it however music is serious business (ha!) and I wanted to do this list justice.
Initially I thought a Top-10 would be punchy and that perhaps a Top-20 was too long though in the end I said screw it, who cares what the final number is!
These are the songs that without fail, every single time I hear them, make me want to run, ride, skip, box, lift, press (you get the point) harder, faster and stronger!
The mix of words and music in some cases still give me goose-bumps and considering the age of some of these songs (pre-my-birth); that is really saying something.
There was only rule I adhered to when compiling this list for you all, that it must inspire me to push myself further in training!
Enjoy (even if that enjoyment is you laughing at some of these selections)!!
MY FAVE WORKOUT TRACKS – in no particular order
- Rollin’ (Air Raid Vehicle) – Limp Bizkit

You may have some of these tracks already and if so now you may be able to see (hear) them in a whole new light. If however there are some newbies on there that you love, perhaps you could ask Santa for an iTunes gift card this year and enjoy a new training playlist for the New Year.
Imagine feeling super inspired each time you popped your headphones/earphones on for a workout? With a little effort you can have this as well as a profoundly positive reaction to your training.
Distraction from pain, increased effort and getting you “in the zone” are all part of it – I swear!
