“Now that we’re all stuck indoors, staying motivated can be tough. But during lockdown, music is a huge part of influencing what we do and how we feel. We know you’re already trying to push harder with our ‘Sport Motivation’ playlist, which has boomed in the last few weeks. But it’s still tough to keep pushing when every day looks the same.

Our ‘Workout With…’ series aims to give you that extra motivation, with your favorite artists becoming part of your exercise regime. So in the words of Zara Larsson – “Repeat after me: I can, I will, I must!’” said fitness buff Nigel Harding, Deezer’s VP of Global Artist Marketing.

Here’s some motivational quotes from the series:

J Balvin

  • “Good things come to those who sweat”
  • “Don’t give up, suck it up!”
  • “I said exercise, not extra fries!”


  • “Your future self will thank you for what you did today…”
  • “Work off that cake from last night, you’ve got this!”
  • “Don’t limit your challenges, challenge your limits baby! You rock and roll star!”

Zara Larsson 

  • “Fitness is like a relationship – you can’t cheat on it and expect it to work”
  • “Repeat after me: I can, I will, I must”
  • “You’re stronger than you think!”

  • “A half hour workout is 2% of your day – no excuses!”
  • “You’re stronger than you think, the body achieves what the mind believes”

Five Finger Death Punch
(Chris Kael)
