Listening to music on the bike is a controversial topic (though you can get purpose designed headphones which let in outside sounds) but most of us like to get our pedal on to music when training on the turbo or at the gym.
Music can be a great motivator – everyone’s got different tastes, but of course there are some clear favourites that really get people moving.
Every month, musical workout site Run Hundred collect favourite songs from 40,000 jiving gym goers, and rank them in order of popularity. Using that information, they’ve complied 2015’s most popular workout songs based on a total of 128,000 people’s votes.
All songs are assigned to a ‘zone’, determined by the beats per minute that will match the music best, so you can make sure your music matches your effort level perfectly.
Without further ado – here’s the official Run Hundred Top Ten, starting from ten and working towards the ultimate number one….
Demi Lovato – Confident – 130 BPM
The American singer released this as the second single on her fifth studio album of the same name – and we have to admit we do love the bad ass bass-ey beat. A song about “empowerment and confidence” we reckon this is a good place to start!
