Uplifting music

Gyms play an odd mix of music, don’t they? Mine has played the following in the past couple of weeks:

  • M2M (like, from the early 2000s)
  • The Spice Girls
  • JLo (1990’s selection)
  • Justin Bieber’s entire back catalogue
  • And of course recent random annoying songs like Britney & her male friend’s “Scream & Shout”, and Fall Out Boy’s “Light It Up which is less annoying. These play pretty much every time I go…

This interesting and frustrating mix of music inspired me to put together a playlist for lifting purposes. One day I might even bring my headphones and listen to it while lifting.

I find that Goth-y rock like Lacuna Coil, or angry rock like Godsmack and Disturbed is motivating and empowering.

What works for you? What gets your energy up and helps you lift better?
