Home workouts are for some, their only saviour during lockdown – breaking boredom, getting the body moving and providing fantastic mental health benefits.

But how has lockdown affected attitudes to their workout playlists? Eastnine, one of the UK’s top fitness coaching apps, surveyed its members to discover the best songs to exercise to while confined.

The results revealed a sense of humour towards the situation, with Brits suggesting power ballads related to survival, escapism and strength.

The essential lockdown workout mix, by Eastnine:

  1. I Will Survive by Gloria Gaynor

  2. Set You Free by N Trance

  3. Clampdown by The Clash

  4. Stronger by Kelly Clarkson

  5. Times Like These by Foo Fighters

  6. Survivor by Destiny’s Child

  7. Stronger by Kanye West

  8. Gotta get Thru this by Daniel Bedingfield

  9. Keep on Running by Spencer Davis Group

  10. The Edge of Glory by Lady Gaga

Cat Forrest, co-founder of Eastnine, said: “Our members said they’ve definitely changed their workout playlists since the lockdown rules came in. It’s fantastic that they’re approaching it with typical British humour – there’s some absolute classics that are sure to get their heart pumping and body moving.”

Eastnine is packed with sessions aimed at everyone from beginners, wanting to start on the right foot, to those who regularly exercise and want to hone or mix-up their daily routines and offers a wide selection of training programmes including one-off runs, HIIT sessions, weekly training plans, warm up exercises and strength training drills – the list is endless and there’s something to choose for everyone.

To support Brits during Covid-19, the app has been made completely free for all, after the founders saw the need for a service that could provide for those who were lacking the usual support from their friends, gym or running groups.

Eastnine coaches include former military trainer, Vince Ciolino, Tokyo Olympic hopefuls, JJ Jegede and Lewis Richardson and running experts Tashi Skervin-Clarke and Ania Gabb.
