Music has been with us since the Ancient times for this art form appeals to us in many ways. It serves as a form of entertainment or inspiration to us. It can even be used to relay heartfelt messages of love, anger, pain, happiness and so on. Thus, music has evolved and continues to evolve in order to soothe our ears. From it, we can draw great inspiration. Music can help us be inspired and get energized for our body fat loss or muscle gain personal training work out.

Upbeat music usually helps so here are some of the songs from my playlist that you might want to try listening to and add to your playlist whenever your in the gym, running outside, or weight loss exercising at home:

1. On the Floor by Jennifer Lopez ft. Pitbull – This up-tempo dance song contains heavy synths and elements of Eurodance, Latin American and techno music. Released in February 2011, Miss Lopez’s On the Floor will surely get you pumped up on the floor.
