The Gym Playlist In Progress

The Gym Playlist In Progress

So, I’m back at the gym (after quite a few more months off than I really should have taken). I am definitely the last person for whom you’d use the term ‘gym bunny’. I’m not stick thin (that’s why I’m there) and posers make me giggle.

I won’t bore you with tales of depleted energy and inevitable aches in muscles I didn’t even knew I had following my recent return to heavy exercise. After all, my resolution this year is to be more positive, right? So instead, I want to share one of my secret weapons, my most important survival tip for the gym.

It is simply this; invest in an mp3 player and fill it with as much music as you can lay your hands on.

It has been scientifically proven that music can reduce pain and discomfort. It logically follows that listening to music you enjoy during a workout will help to keep your energy levels up and your mood positive. If it matches your pace on cardio equipment such as the treadmill or exercise bike, all the better.

I recently bought a new mp3 player and, having spent an hour or two fruitlessly searching for other people’s recommendations, decided to post my own playlist up for others to find and hopefully help in adding to their own playlists. If that’s you, I’d love to hear about the music you rate!

  1. I like a lot of songs you’ve listed but I’m a huge fan of the song Bodies by The Smashing Pumpkins. It has a ton of energy!
