What’s up with new years resolutions? January is definitely the busiest month in gyms all over the world because who doesn’t want to lose their extra Christmas kilos ASAP? A post-holiday workout is the hardest of the season, which is why we present you with this workout motivation mix!

The Gym gurus of start-up Gymeyes helped me out. Rise and shine, it’s time to pump up the gym!

5. Let’s Go – Calvin Harris ft. Ne-Yo

Hmm… I don’t really feel like it’, ‘It’s raining outside’, ‘My bed is soooo comfortable’ – we all know them, those excuses! As long as they don’t stop you from getting out of bed or off the couch because you always feel better after a workout!

If you haven’t worked out in a while, if you’re out of shape or if you’re simply ‘not that sporty’, the threshold is likely to feel even higher. Let Calvin lift you over it!

Let’s go!
Make no excuses now
I’m talking here and now
I’m talking here and now

It’s not about what you’ve done
It’s about what you doing
It’s all about where you going
No matter where you’ve been
Let’s go!
Let’s Go – Calvin Harris ft. Ne-Yo

Let’s GO GO GO!

4. Burn – Ellie Goulding

Once you get there, you can participate in a group lesson: Bodypump, Zumba or even Spinning? But first, if you feel like going to the gym to do some weight training, you’ll have to warm up with some cardio… And if you keep that up long enough, Ellie is (definitely) right.

When the light started out they don’t know what they heard
Strike the match, play it loud, giving love to the world
We’ll be raising our hands, shining up to the sky
‘Cause we got the fire, fire, fire
Yeah we got the fire, fire, fire

And we gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
We gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
Burn – Ellie Goulding

A great gym session for sure!

3. #Selfie – The Chainsmokers

If your workout is going great, without getting a red face, it is of course a great shame if only your fit family witnesses it.

Gymeyes records your workout with innovative action cameras so you perfect your movements, while using it to impress your bros and GFs on social media. How cool is it to post such a next level #selfie?

Can you guys help me pick a filter?
I don’t know if I should go with XX Pro or Valencia
I wanna look tan
What should my caption be?
I want it to be clever
How about “Livin’ with my bitches, hash tag LIVE”
I only got 10 likes in the last 5 minutes
Do you think I should take it down?
Let me take another selfie
#Selfie – The Chainsmokers

More than #instagood if you ask me…

2. Heads Will Roll – Yeah Yeah Yeah’s ft. A-Trak

After 50 burpees, 3 x 12 squats and 30 sit-ups, you’ll be thinking ‘Why am I doing this again?‘, but that’s exactly the moment when you should persist! No pain, no gain! Eventually you will reap the reward! Replace ‘dance’ with ‘pump’ in Heads Will Roll from Yeah Yeah Yeah’s feat. A-Track and you’re good to go!

Off, off with your head
Dance, dance ‘til you’re dead
Heads will roll
Heads will roll
Heads will roll
On the floor

You came last
Take the past
Shut your eyes
Heads Will Roll – Yeah Yeah Yeah’s ft. A-Trak

These lyrics will make 3 x 10 deadlifts as easy as pie!

1. The Man – Aloe Blacc

This might feel like blaspheming in church or slacking off in the gym.. but if you ask me, the best part of working out is when you’re done. How good does that endorphin rush feel? Tired but satisfied, proud of what you have achieved. In short; you are the (wo)man!

Stand up now and face the sun
Won’t hide my tail or turn and run
It’s time to do what must be done
Be a king when kingdom comes

Well you can tell everybody
Yeah you can tell everybody
Go ahead and tell everybody
I’m the man, I’m the man, I’m the man
The Man – Aloe Blacc
