“Rhythm is a dancer,
It’s a soul companion,
You can feel it everywhere,
Lift your hands and voices,
Free your mind and join us,
You can feel it in the air.”
And what a classic dance tune that is! We can’t help but workout to this song; in fact, there are loads of classic belters that we love exercising to! A good track whilst at the gym or going for a run makes our workout even more of an achievement and we always seem to find more energy and motivation; well obviously it depends on the song. Listening to ‘All by myself ‘doesn’t have the same effect as the Swedish House Mafia!
Gyms and personal trainers teaching exercise classes, will 99% of the time have music involved to get your body pumping and adrenaline racing. According to recent research from the Brunel University, listening to music whilst completing an exercise workout will increase your endurance by 15%. However, the research also revealed that music tracks should be between 120-140 beats per second. Looks like our ballads will have to be put to one side!
Music doesn’t just add a motivational boost, but a fun element too. Big running events often have music stations scattered around the course and fitness instructors, depending on their choice of music, will play uplifting music as a distraction. If you have a love for music and rhythm, then Focus Training might have the course for you!
