Research shows that we are becoming increasingly unhealthy, partly because people exercise less during the lockdown. If it is up to Dutch DJ / producer MOTi something must be done about this. Since the start of the lockdown, he has been at home just like his fellow DJs colleagues, but doing nothing is not an option. Working from his studio MOTi started to focus on a new project called BODYWORX, with which he produces workout music.
MOTi started BODYWORX in 2019 as he was looking for music that could motivate him during his workouts, but couldn’t find it anywhere. He started experimenting with dance music and uplifting lyrics and made songs that work perfect for your workout. Despite the fact that he immediately received a lot of positive reaction, after putting the music online, BODYWORX became a serious project during the first lockdown early 2020. This was partly due to the fact that more people had to exercise at home and the need for good workout music rose. Within no time BODYWORX amassed 45 million streams and those numbers are still rising rapidly. Collaborations soon followed with popular brands like Les Mills, FunXtion and most recently with Dutch actress and influencer Yolanthe Cabau for her CABAU lifestyle app.
MOTi: “I started making music under the name BODYWORX to motivate myself during workouts. After the first releases I received a lot of positive reactions and I noticed that there was a great need for this kind of music, so I continued with it. Now BODYWORX has become bigger than I could have imagined at first.”

On March 24, the Dutch actress Yolanthe Cabau, who played alongside Mark Wahlberg in the movie Pain and Gain, launched her own lifestyle app focused on women empowerment. Via the app you can follow various workouts, classes and programs, for which BODYWORX produced the music. You can find videos of High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), but also follow yoga and meditation sessions and you can also find everything about nutrition and mental health. New training videos will be added every three months with music from BODYWORX.
In 2008 the Dutch DJ / producer MOTi catapulted into the house scene. Due to his diverse sound and enormous drive in the studio, he became a household name in no time and his music is streamed over a billion times. MOTi has collaborated with big names from within the scene such as Tiesto, R3hab and Martin Garrix with whom he scored a Beatport #1 hit with the track “Virus”, but also with superstars such as Major Lazor, Ty Dolla Sign and Wyclef Jean. With his music he graced the stages of Ultra Music Festival, Tomorrowland, Electric Daisy Carnival and Electric Zoo and played in the biggest clubs around the world. In 2018 MOTi started his own independent label ZERO COOL RECORDS and gathered more than 100 million streams within the first year. He scored his most recent success with BODYWORX, under that name he produces music that suits your workout perfectly.
