One of the things I NEED to have in the gym is good music - I find my choice of tune can definitely motivate me and re-energise me if I'm flagging.
I managed to FINALLY work out how to make a playlist on my Walkman mp3 player the other night and chose some songs that I thought would really motivate me. However, they haven't really provided the kick up the arse I needed. Instead, I have found myself turning to a Floorfillers Anthem selection which my friend loaned me to download ages ago. I'm not a massive fan of current dance music, but stuff from the nineties seems to really work for me.
Song like this . . .
Or this. When the chorus kicks in I find myself speeding up every time . . .
And THIS has to be the best motivator I have found so far . . . I think perhaps it's not just the energy in the track itself but also the "motivational" lyrics that help me with this one . . . ;-)
But, y'know, I need a bit of variety here. So help me out - what are YOUR top workout tracks? Maybe now I finally know how to make a playlist I can dream up a BRILLIANT one with your help.
Throw me some suggestions . . .
