For some people going to the gym isn’t an enjoyable experience, especially on a weekday when you have been in work and would rather just go home and lounge out on the sofa. I enjoy going to the gym and I’m normally in there for about 45 minutes, but I do feel the time drags sometimes which can make me less motivated to work hard whilst I’m there. In my opinion, the best way to fully benefit from your time in the gym and enjoy being there is to put my earphones in and listen to one of my favourite playlists.
I was using the free version of Spotify for a while and then I was offered a deal from them, which was 3 months for 99p instead of the usual £9.99 a month so I thought I would give it a go. I must admit, the adverts in between the songs didn’t really bother me, but since I have started using Spotify premium I have realised how good the app actually is. I have created various playlists for a number of different occasions, but for me it’s perfect for creating a playlist to listen to in the gym.
When I first got an iPhone I used to copy CD’s onto my account and put them on my phone but I got to the point where I was skipping more songs than what I was listening to, so to be able to select the songs I like and add them into one playlist is great! Now, I know that everyone has their own taste in music but I thought I would share some of the songs on my gym playlist that get me motivated in the gym.
Bob Sinclair – Someone who needs me
Bilion – Slave to the vibe
Tiesto, John Legend – Summer nights
Imani Williams, Sigala & Blonde – Don’t need no money
Blinkie – Don’t give up (on love)
Bob Marley, The Wailers – Is this love (Remix)
Disciples, David Guetta – No worries
Galantis, East & Young – Make me feel
Steve Aoki, Boehm – Back 2 U
Martin Garrix – Gold skies
These are just a few songs that I listen to both in and out of the gym but it would be great to here some of your suggestions!
