The Gym Playlist


Gym. I love and loathe it in equal measure. Nothing beats the high you get after a good session of sweating your derriere off, owing to that quick burst of endorphins that floods your bloodstream.  But the actual process of lifting your ass off  the couch and drag it all the way to the dungeon of terror? (yes, I sometimes refer to it as that) is another matter entirely. THE EFFORT!!!!! But you know what helps to set the wheels in motion?  A reliable playlist that you can rely on to support you in your quest to become the next Victoria's Secret Angel (I'd just settle for looking less like a big toe). Below are my picks. The songs included either have a sick beat or inspiring and motivational lyrics.

When you'd rather pull both eyeballs out than run like an eejit on the treadmill: 
Work Bitch by Britney Spears
I Gotta Feeling by The Black Eyed Peas
Let's Go by Calvin Harris ft Ne-Yo
Masterpiece by Jessie J
I Will Never Let You Down by Rita Ora

As you enter the gym, you want to raise your morale as high as it could go, fake your confidence and pretend you know exactly what you're doing by listening to:
Who Dat Girl by Flo Rida ft Akon
This Girl by Laza Morgan
Hollaback Girl by Gwen Stefani
Hypnotized by Plies ft Akon

Working on your glutes, quads and hamstrings? Work through your squats with:
Booty by Jennifer Lopez ft Iggy Azalea
Booty Wurk by T-Pain ft Joey Galaxy
My Humps by The Black Eyed Peas
With Legs Like That by Zebrahead

For that moment you find yourself in pure agony, going _ km/hr on the treadmill, dripping in sweat, cheeks so red, heart beating so fast and your mind screams ''Pls, no more. I beg you. You ain't an Olympian sprinter. Who do you think you are? Usain Bolt?'' 
Bounce by Iggy Azalea
Love Me Like You Do by Ellie Goulding (that 3rd round of chorus after the verse that starts with 'Yeah, I'll let you set the pace?' Works like a charm. Every. Damn. Painful. Time.) 
Dirrty by Christina Aguilera 'sweat dripping over my body'
Church by T-Pain
You Gotta Want It by Jordin Sparks
Shawty Get Loose by Lil Mama ft Chris Brown and T-Pain

We all know that cardio is boring, so spice up your workout and power through the elliptical/ stationary bike/rowing machine with these jams:
Mama by Christopher
I'm A Freak by Enrique Iglesias
Bailando by Enrique Iglesias
La La La by Naughty Boy ft Sam Smith
Show Me The Money by Petey Pablo
Dangerous Love by Fuse ODG ft Sean Paul
Break Free by Ariana Grande ft Zedd
Last Friday Night by Katy Perry
Fire Burning by Sean Kingston
369 by Cupid ft B.o.B
Ayo by Chris Brown ft Tyga
Papi by Jennifer Lopez
Famous by Charli XCX
Goodies by Ciara ft Petey Pablo
1, 2 Step by Ciara ft Missy Elliot
Timber by Pitbull ft Kesha

You're down to your last few reps of lifting weights etc, but while your mind is crying out for you to keep pushing, deep in your heart you just want to walk out already. Push through that boundary and train like a breast by bringing out the big guns:
Numb by Linkin Park 
Lose Yourself by Eminem
Fighter by Christina Aguilera 
More by Usher ''I'm a beast, I'm an animal, I'm that Monster in the mirror.... Gonna push it to the limit, give it more''


At last you've finished your workout. It sure wasn't easy. You're sweaty Betty, but boy does it feel so damn good. Bask in your hard-earned post workout glow by blaring out: 
Pretty Girls by Britney Spears & Iggy Azalea
Fancy by Iggy Azalea ft Charli XCX ''hot girl, hands off, don't touch that. Look at that, I bet you wishing you could clutch that''
Beautiful by Akon ft Colby O'Donis
On Top of the World by Imagine Dragons

You've earned those sweat patches, go rock them girlfriend....
