I’ve had 4 gym visits so far and I’m really getting into it. I love the feeling of achievement afterwards. I even love the aching muscles (although not so much after leg training when you’re walking up the stairs like John Wayne).
The gym I go to has music playing but it’s not always stuff that’s to my taste. I didn’t bother taking headphones the first couple of times I went, but now I’ve started I couldn’t go without them. It’s amazing how much the right music can motivate you and push you to work hard.
I can’t lie – I do like the “girl power” kind of songs for my workouts. I know it’s a bit cheesy but they’re definitely the most fun. I’ve seen quite a few “top 10” lists on other blogs so I thought I’d list my top 10 gym songs.
1. Little Mix – Salute
2. Solo 45 – Feed em to the lions
3. Pink – Raise your glass
4. Christina Aguilera – Fighter
5. Beyonce – Run the world
6. Labrinth – Earthquake
7. Ludacris – My chick bad
8. Lady Gaga – The queen
9. Nicki Minaj – Pound the alarm
10. Dr Dre – Forgot about Dre
