In case you haven't heard, our Latina Fitness blogger Evelyn Lozada is a badass!
She's fierce. She's unstoppable. And when she's at the gym working out (which these days, is ALL of the time!), Evelyn is constantly pushing herself (and her limits) and as a result, she's never felt (or looked) better!
But as much as Evelyn cares about her health (and personal fitness), a big part of Ev's mission as Latina's celebrity fitness guru, is to inspire (and empower) other Latina women to take control of their lives by taking care of their bodies.
And one way to motivate her fellow Latinas, Ev says, is to teach them that working out can be fun! "I grew up in a VERY Puerto Rican household," Evelyn tells Latina.com. "When I work out, I listen to a variety of music. To me, it’s important to have music playing while working out because it totally motivates me!"
Here, the Basketball Wives star shares the 10 songs that are on her IPod right now and explains why they motivate her at the gym. And Ev wants to know: Which songs motivate you while working out?
