Gimme a Beat

Feelgood Quickie

Let’s do something fun today.  You know how a new playlist can rev up your workout?  When I put new songs on my iPod I can not wait to hit the treadmill.

Studies show that listening to music while working out helps you to focus, which sharpens the mind. Rocking out even keeps you going longer and harder.  Rather than thinking about the difficulty of your cardio, you work out to the rhythm of the music.

So let’s share.  What are your favorite tunes to work out to?  Which ones pump up your jam and get your blood flowing?  Leave a comment below letting us know.

Need fresh ideas?  Check out these playlists on Fit Sugar and Women’s Health.

  1. Instead of music, I catch up on podcasts when I’m working out solo. Music tends to make me go too fast, but Ira Glass is an awesome running partner that somehow makes me pace myself!
