“Celebrate” (feat. Pharrell) - MIKA
this song came on at the gym on saturday morning and it’s so happy and catchy, i love it. sometimes negative feelings can be good catalysts for getting a good lift in, but sometimes it’s fun to just dance around the weight room and have a great time!

“Local Man Ruins Everything” - The Wonder Years
This is what i’m listening to for my lift this morning. There usually isn’t a lot of overlap between songs I listen to for pleasure & songs I like to work it out to, but I love this album so much and I wasn’t feeling very motivated this morning (and that’s okay - some days are like that!). Gives me something great to listen to while I trudge through my workout.

“Ni**as In Paris” - Jay-Z & Kanye West
This song… man, I don’t know, there’s just something about it. When it comes on, it makes me want to WORK IT. I can see this song getting me psyched for either a lifting day or a nice long run. Love him or hate him, Kanye makes some great music to sweat to.

“Hey Baby (Drop It To The Floor)” - Pitfull F. T-Pain
If this song doesn’t make you want to move, you should probably check your pulse. I don’t really ‘go to the club’ anymore, but if I did, I would totally tear it up on the dance floor the second this song came on. Also, it’s friday and this song has been stuck in my head all day, so enjoy.

“Scary Monsters & Nice Sprites” - Skrillex
File this song under “music I wish my gym would play”, but somehow I don’t think Gold’s Gym is ready to blast some dubstep. I freakin’ love this song and have been absolutely obsessed with it since the very first time I heard it. I could see it being a really good song to listen to while lifting. Maybe one day i’ll get an mp3 player!

“Blackout” - Breathe Carolina
“Let’s go a little harder, I’m on fire”… I feel like I hear this song everywhere lately. It came on this morning at the gym while I was lifting & it made me want to dance between sets!

“Shake it Out” - Florence + The Machine
this song is always playing in my gym’s locker room, and it is the perfect song to either get me mentally ready for a workout or to help me revel in my pride & satisfaction. something about it just makes me feel powerful & strong.
