A 17 year old girl, fitness enthusiast and dedicated Olympic style weightlifter and non-competitive Irish dancer. I'm determined to live a healthy lifestyle and take care of my body whilst influencing other young people to do so. I never doubt my ability to achieve something; I just change what I'm doing until I succeed.
Back to Blog
In this post I thought I'd discuss some of my favourite songs to listen to whilst I'm working out and how to create a motivating playlist. Personally I love listening to music whilst exercising as it motivates and encourages me to keep on going. I also love adding new songs to my playlist and enjoying other song recommendations. Sorry if this post is quite short, I've previously written this a few months back to save me from stressing out and not posting on the days that I have to revise or am away for my Duke of Edinburgh Bronze expedition. But please do continue reading!
My top 10 favourite songs to workout to
Most of the songs above are very upbeat, however some of them are rock style music. Upbeat music can really help keep you feeling positive whilst working out, especially if the songs are good to dance to and blast as loud as you can! I try to avoid songs which are slow or deep as they can bring a negative atmosphere to my workout and I don't need that when I'm trying my hardest to not give up. A while back, I had some chilled songs in my workout playlist but that just caused me to become distracted and start looking at social media instead of being energetic. Feel free to add any of the songs above into your own fitness playlists!
