Music is the making or breaking point of every workout. For those with a morning workout schedule, you need something that is going to wake you up, pump you up, and motivate you to complete the challenges ahead of you. If evening workouts are your thing then maybe it is music to shake off the day and recenter you on your present task, moving your body. Whatever your workout cycle, music is at the core.
Be the Fitness Fanatic
FitRadio, an all-encompassing music solution for individuals, gyms, fitness studios, trainers, and digital fitness brands, surveyed 7,000 gym and studio members on music. They found 91% preferred listening to a new playlist for each workout, and 92% said that music impacted their performance during a workout. Actually, 95% agreed that music is just as important as the instruction given in a workout.
The findings aren’t surprising given that researchers have been studying the impact of music on working out since 1911. From ranges in intensity, speed, to frequency of movement, music has a scientifically proven positive effect on the quality of our workouts.
When Your Workout is A Guessing Game
The last thing you want to worry about during your workout is what song is about to play next. When you press play on a playlist containing hundreds of songs with different genres, tempos, and moods, you never know what’s coming. Picture yourself running on the treadmill, jamming out to an upbeat pop song, perfect for your workout. But then, the song ends; and suddenly, you’re running on the treadmill while listening to an emotional, slow ballad. Now you’re forced to shift your focus from your workout to your phone, to try to find a song that will let you continue running at the same pace and momentum that you were at before.
The Solution- Built by DJs
Fortunately, that is why I turn to Fitradio– mixes built by DJs and fitness experts so that I can keep my focus on my workout. Once you hit play on a mix, you won’t have to touch your phone for the rest of your workout session! They take all the factors into consideration, so I don’t have to. They also partner with some of the country’s top fitness studios and gyms to transform the listening experience during your favorite HIIT or spin class.
With more than 10,000 unique mixes spanning 50 different genres, there is something for everyone and every workout. I especially love that they collaborate with more than 200 DJs and consider the science behind matching music to fitness experience.
