Tomorrow is the late great Freddie Mercury’s birthday had he still been alive he would be 65 years old.

We all know that music is a great motivator for exercise, how many times have you been on a night when you think your ready for home then suddenly the DJ or duke box plays your song and your back to life taking over the dance floor.
