Over 30 Motivational Songs To Keep You Fit

By Stephanie O’Quigley.

Yes, I LOVE to workout. No, I’m not spoofing you. I’m probably one of those rare people that actually enjoy’s it and stick’s to a good routine. I am continuing to challenge myself all the time, little by little. It’s as simple as that. But one secret I’ve learnt is that working out to the best of your ability and learning to love hard work, starts with you. You and your mindset.

Here are some of my favourite motivational songs that encourage me and take my mind off  the workout. Although my own personal music taste is apparent throughout this list, I’ve done my best to mix it up keeping in mind other genres.
