There are several reasons to listen to music while you work out, whether you are running, lifting weights or doing TRX exercises. A good playlist can actually enhance your workout by giving you added energy and enthusiasm, and can put you in a better mood. Particular beats and tempos can increase your pace and help you cycle or run faster. Plus, music is one of the best forms of distraction. If you are someone who does not enjoy working out, listening to some good tunes can make exercising more fun.
Here are my Top 10 Workout Songs
Music just puts you in the zone. Before you hit the pavement or the gym, get you a good playlist in order. Have slower songs for your warm-up and cool-down, and upbeat, fast songs to help you keep up the momentum during the workout. You can also listen to a Pandora or Spotify station. One of my favorites is the Pandora Pop and Hip Hop Workout Playlist.
It doesn’t matter which songs you choose, as long as they enhance your workout and make you feel good. If you are interested in signing up for personal training or would like a customized workout plan, please contact me.
