Relaxing songs for your yoga stretch or DJ Will’s personal playlist, if you’re bored with your own workout playlists, it’s time to try one of ours.
Workouts Just Got Easier
Seriously. Research shows that listening to great music while you train helps to distract you from the pain in your body and the physical exertion. Upbeat music has been found to benefit athletic performance by 15%, meaning you can go for longer when you’ve got the beat just right.
We all have that one song that gets us ‘in the zone’ and research has shown that playing a song that you associate a particular memory with can boost your physical performance. So when you play Eye of the Tiger to channel those start line vibes, it really is having an impact on your motivation.
And there’s more. Great music will make you want to move more, help you keep pace and elevate your mood add to that the endorphins released when you exercise and you’ll be flying.
