The original soundtrack works out best

PPL is a Good Thing. It is a non-profit making company which works on behalf of over 90,000 record companies and performers to license recorded music played in public (at pubs, nightclubs, restaurants, shops, offices and many other business types) and broadcast on TV radio and online across the UK. Although its 90,000 members include major record labels and globally successful performers, the majority are small businesses and session musicians – all of whom are legally entitled to be fairly paid for the use of their recordings and performances.

However, this worthy company has taken a moment out to discover what music people prefer to listen to while they are working out in the gym. Two main findings emerged.
•First, YouGov established that 83% of gym members in London who attend fitness classes prefer to listen to music by original artists when working out at a fitness class. The gym goers said they found original tracks more enjoyable and of a better quality than covers.
•Second, a chart of most played songs to work out to in 2014 has been supplied by FitPro.
01 Gecko (Overdrive) – Oliver Heldens and Becky Hill
02 Summer – Calvin Harris
03 Crazy Stupid Love (Club Mix) – Cheryl Cole ft Tinie Tempah
04 One More Day (Stay With Me) – Example
05 Wasted – Tiesto
06 I Will Never Let You Down – Rita Ora
07 All Of Me (Tiesto Remix) – John Legend
08 Your Love – Nicole Scherzinger
09 Birthday – Katy Perry
10 Fancy – Iggy Azalea ft. Charli XCX

Now TV fitness guru Mr Motivator has come out backing original artist tracks too. He said: “You can’t beat music by original artists to get everyone feeling good and feeling pumped. In my workouts, I like to mix it up – from motown to the modern day. For a warm up, something like Michael Jackson’s Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough is great for building mobility in the muscles as the beat starts to build. Lady Gaga is fantastic for a faster paced cardio routine, to get the blood flowing, legs moving and calories burning. For toning, McFadden & Whitehead’s Ain’t No Stopping Us Now can really help to focus the breath to get you deeper into the stretch. And I suppose after all that exertion, for the cool down I’d suggest something chilled and my ultimate track would be Bob Marley’s classic, No Woman No Cry.”
