Workout music is often the glue that holds our workout together. Come on, how many times have you felt inclined to pound out another mile on the treadmill just because your fave workout song suddenly drops like a bomb into your headphones?
And because we’re all about keeping up the fitness ladies, here are some of team LOOK’s essential gym tunes to get you pumped for your workout. From running to weight training, here are some musical suggestions for your daily workout playlist…
1. Iggy Pop – Lust For Life
Perfect for knocking out a few km on the treadmill, Iggy’s classic is a bona fide gym anthem. Catch the full video here.
This ’90s banger is a team LOOK favourite. We recommend listening to this tune during a high-intensity class…or in the confines of your bedroom! Either way, you’re going to be moving. Unitards are optional. Check out the video here.
This indie dancefloor filler was the crowning jewel of everyone’s Uni playlist, AND we couldn’t get enough of the doomed love story between Brandon Flowers and the candy-floss haired beauty shakin’ her vaudeville tail feather in the song’s video. Reacquaint youself with this old favourite here.
here…. Cause no one can shake a booty like Jenny from the Block, here’s one those stompers to get down and sweaty to. Check the vid
For the more rock orientated of you gym ladies, there’s no denying that Dave Grohl and his band of merry Foo Fighters can get the adrenaline pumping. Particularly good for more cardio heavy workouts, stick on The Pretender and give it some serious socks with those kettlebells.
7. Beyoncé – Run the World (Girls)
All hail Queen Bey. If a bit of this don’t get you in the mood for a sweaty workout, nothing will! Check out the video (with ALL the fierceness) right here.
Sometimes you just need a vintage track to get you onto that cross trainer, and nothing beats a bit of classic Mac. Go Your Own Way was a resounding gym favourite amongst many of the LOOK team. In fact, we don’t need any excuse to play it. It’s awesome.
9. 50 Cent ft. Justin Timberlake – Ayo Technology
Fiddy and JT – what a team huh? Apart from being ridculously sexy, this tune is awesome to work out to. Even if Justin is a little bit creepy in the video…
