Tracks For Motivation

Tracks For Motivation

Hello friends!

I hope you’re all well and thriving as much as you can in the current state of the world. Today’s post is a lil playlist and lil recommendation, a lil collection of songs I kept adding to this mental list in my head throughout my day.

I’ve been making fitness and physical performance goals a bigger focus of mine in 2021. Since December last year, up until about the end of July I hit a morning F45 session and it’s still a favourite of mine. I’m due back as soon as Lockdown 6.0 is done. Over the last month or so however, I’m back at the gym, lifting weights, going for longer sessions and doing my own solo thing.

Today’s shoulder session was blessed by the shuffle button if I do say so myself. It was like every song that came on was the perfect song I needed to get through the next two minutes that were creeping up on me. So I thought for today’s post I’d share some of the songs that really came through with that extra kick of motivation. Let’s go.

Edge Of Seventeen – Stevie Nicks
Let’s Begin – Jon Bellion, Roc Marciano, RZA, B.Keyz, Travis Mendes
No Hands – Waka Flocka Flame, Roscoe Dash, Wale
Tomboy – Princess Nokie
Deceptacon – Le Tigre
Dirty Diana – Michael Jackson
Random – G-Eazy
t r a n s p a r e n t s o u l – WILLOW, Travis Barker
Captain Hook – Megan Thee Stallion
DIET_ – Denzel Curry, Kenny Beats
Purple Hat – Sofi Tukker
Floor Seats – A$AP Ferg
Lapdance – N.E.R.D, Vita, Lee Harvey
Vossi Bop – Stormzy
Rushing Back – Vera Blue, Flume
Is Everybody Going Crazy – Nothing But Thieves
Red Nation – The Game, Lil Wayne
Hayloft – Mother Mother
Age of Machine – Greta Van Fleet
Barracuda – Heart


It’s amazing what a solid playlist can do for you. I can literally get thrown off by a song that doesn’t hit as hard as I need to, hence why I made a playlist specifically filled with songs that just really set the tone for me. You can follow my pump playlist and my inhaler playlist and use them for whatever it is you wanna do, lifting and throwing around weights or going for a run and setting a pace.

Get It Done At Home 2.0 // A Playlist

Get It Done At Home 2.0 // A Playlist

Hello everyone!

I hope you’re all well and getting through 2020 as best you can right now. I just wanted to drop in to share another playlist with you all!

The original post in this series which you can find HERE, was shared a little while ago, right at the beginning of the entire lockdown/isolation/COVID19 situation.

I think one of the biggest things that changed when literally the world, went into lockdowns of varying degrees, was the way we all worked out, got our exercise, moved our bodies and stayed fit.

A lot of people (me), relied on going to the gym to get a proper workout in, while other people (also me) were a part of sporting teams that practiced and played games every week, providing them with an easy and fun way to workout and stay fit. You had people who went to big group classes and other people who worked one-on-one with a personal trainer. All in all, the way we worked out and stayed healthy, changed drastically.

Like I mentioned, I was one of those people who relied heavily on going to the gym as much as I could, and playing team sports. As expected, considering Melbourne is back in lockdown for the second time, I’ve not been able to go to the gym or play any sport since March. So obviously we needed to make some changes.

Between my little sister, my dad and I, we were at the gym nearly every day of the week, so it only seemed fair that the three of us finally splurged on a bunch of basic gym equipment for our garage, and after an entire day of emptying out the space, cleaning out what we didn’t need anymore, selling a bunch of stuff on FaceBook Marketplace and donating a ton, we finally had a place for it all to go.

Honestly, some kettlebells, hand weights, resistance bands, plates and maybe a bar are all you need, and you could definitely get by on even less. The garage has quickly become my favourite place in the house, and after I come back from my daily walk with my sister, I’m straight in there for an hour or so. Plus with the huge amount of people sharing workout routines and home-based programs on Instagram, YouTube and TikTok, I’m constantly changing and switching up what it is I actually do.

One of my favourite things about the space, is that I also get to bring one of the many BlueTooth speakers that are floating around my house in there with me, so not only do I have a place to get in my workouts, but I also have a place to finally blast my gym playlists once again,

It’s a win/win really.

Speaking of gym playlists – welcome to today’s post. I’ve changed up my playlist a little bit since moving to home workouts, I’ve found new music, I’ve taken some music out, and it’s the main thing that gets me excited to workout if I’m being 100% honest, so I thought I ought to share with you!!
