Workout Music Makes Exercising More Fun
Running is my favorite workout. I like running outside and feeling the sun warming up my face. If it’s a rainy day, there are other indoor exercises and the treadmill. What makes exercise more fun though is workout music.
My playlist for exercise music varies all the time. If I was going on a slow jog, I’d pick soothing music that would make me more relaxed, while enjoying the fresh air and the view around me. If I want to go a little rough and beat myself up with my workout, I’d go for electronic or punk rock music. Gives me the rush and keeps me feeling all pumped up in losing weight. If I really want to enjoy my workout and keep myself sweating, I love putting on dance music. This keeps my feet moving and I end up shaking my head and hands along with it.
We don’t have to stick to just one playlist or one genre of music while doing our workout, we can also put it in line with our moods. I’ve read blogs about workout music and it’s interesting how different people choose them. Some like listening to a specific artist, some like listening to a specific genre and then there are some like me, who can go from slow to really fast music.
It doesn’t stop with listening to music and your favorite songs though. Some prefer to listen to audio books instead while running or walking. You can also have a TV set in front of your treadmill and do your exercise in time with your favorite series. You won’t notice time passing and you’re basically multi-tasking. It’s like getting two things done in one sitting!
We all want to be healthy. We all want to look good and be fit. There are a lot of exercise and diet information passed around. Choose whatever works for you best. One you’re sure you can stick with. Weight loss advice is given everywhere, from people at home, to work, to the gym, and to your circle of friends. We can listen to all of them, and while we’re at it, won’t hurt if we listen to music we like on our iPods and have fun while keeping healthy and fit.
