music to work out to

Pump, pump, up and down, spring that booty round and round. To coincide with the launch of our Get Fit series with supermodel and super hunk Rob Evans, we’ve collated a list of the best songs to work out to. Now drop this beat and give me 20.

Lethal Bizzle, Rari Workout

Do it for the Speedos, do it for the beach, do it for the stamina, do it for the sheets. With a beat so strong it could knock you out, there's no better song to work out to. 

Salt n Peppa, Push It

This dance ain't for everybody. Only the sexy people. So all you fly mothers, get on out there and dance! When you're next pumping iron in the gym just play this song and push it, push it real good. 

Missy Elliott, Work It

Channel your inner Missy Elliot and put your thing down, flip it and reverse it. Trust me, it's worth it when you work it.

Darq E Freaker, Minger

More pumped than the iron you're lifting, this song will turbo charge your workout superman style.

Olivia Newton John, Lets Get Physical

When you're feeling in the mood to get physical just play this song and let your body do the talking. Let's get animal.

Eminem, Till I Collapse

In the words of Eminem himself: cos sometimes you just feel tired, feel weak, and when you feel weak, you feel like you wanna just give up. But you gotta search within you, you gotta find that inner strength. And just pull that shit out of you and get that motivation to not give up. And not be a quitter, no matter how bad you wanna just fall flat on your face and collapse.
