Firstly I must start by saying that this post needs a “LANGUAGE WARNING” and is aimed at those with young ears!! Yes mum I am talking to you – don’t go blasting these songs to your gorgeous PT clients at 6am, because I can guarantee that both them and the neighbours won’t appreciate it!

These songs are loud and obnoxious with a great beat to lift your mood and get your heart rate firing! But isn’t that what we need to get that awesome sweat dripping workout under the belt. I am the one in the gym whose ear phones are so loud you can comfortably listen to my music standing meters away from me. Yes this is bad for your ears, and my lovely other half constantly tells me to turn it down (and he is completely correct) although how am I expected to do a burpee without J-Lo blasting in my ear to ‘get right’ ?

So here goes. After much internet research I have come up with a list of the 10 best workout songs for 2014. The sooner you get them on your iPod the sooner you can get your sweat on! Enjoy

Drake “0-100/ The Catch-Up” – Best for Cardio

Chromeo “Jealous (I Ain’t With It)” – Best for Zumba or Dance

Nicki Minaj f/ Soulja Boy “Yasss Bish” – Best for outdoor cardio
