As the morning get wetter and windier, and the nights get darker, it becomes all too easy to put of that run through the park before work, or avoid hitting the gym on the way home. To help get you motivated to do some serious exercise the Aura team have put together this week’s top 5 tracks you need on your workout playlist.
Katy Perry – Roar
This upbeat self-empowering anthem with its shout-along chorus, is a great track to kick start your day. Dust off those Monday blues, and forget about that sixth margarita on Saturday night…
Kanye West – Stronger
If you need a slightly ‘stronger’ beat (pun intended) this pumping tune with its Daft Punk sample, and perpetual beat, doesn’t give you a chance to stray of course, keeping you focused for the full 4 plus minutes.
Pitbull / Kesha – Timber
Well, what is there to say about this… the words ‘guilty pleasure’ spring to mind. Now we’ve got that out the way, this Pitbull and Kesha mashup is pure insanity! Sure, this track is never going to go down in history as one of the all-time greats, but if you need a dose of pure energy, ditch the caffeine and just play this, as LOUD as you can.
Bon Jovi – It’s My Life
Have you ever met a single person that doesn’t like at least one Bon Jovi track? Well, maybe… But that’s a discussion for another time. It’s My Life is another great motivational and empowering track, perfect for pushing you through that final sprint home.
Macklemore Ryan Lewis – Can’t Hold Us
If we had to describe this track using just one word, that word would be relentless! You don’t get a moments rest throughout this entire anthem, with the drum beat thumping throughout, and Macklemore’s seemingly endless rapping, this tune is the ideal soundtrack to high intensity workouts. Also, the video is outrageously good.
