A famous celebrity once quoted, “I spend about 75% of my time at the gym finding the right song for my workout.” That is the conundrum we face while working out. Studies indicate that music is a motivator for workouts. In fact, fast-paced and high tempo beats encourage movement. How many times did you get up and do a little jiggy just because the song had infectious beats?
Music diverts your mind away from pain and tiredness. It energizes you and even increases the flow of endorphins to your brain. It is said to make you feel happy while working out. Studies indicate that music also increases the metabolic rate. People who listen to music may carry out extended workouts without realizing it but enjoying themselves nonetheless.
In fact, Sonakshi Sinha has attributed her svelte frame to long and hard workouts while listening to Yo Yo Honey Singh’s songs. She quoted on Twitter, “Woke up at 6 am. Didn’t know what to do. Put on some @asliyoyo music on full blast and BAM – 2 hour workout done!”

Do not get so involved in the music that you cannot hear any external sounds or lose sense of where you are. You may be thinking that you are in a nightclub while still being on the treadmill. Be alert to avoid any mishaps.
If music is the food of life, play on. Stay healthy and stay happy.
