Workout playlists are maybe the only thing that makes me go to the gym. I hate it when I put it on shuffle and one of my wife’s songs for Taytay (Taylor Swift) comes on.

You’ll need songs to get your blood pumping so that you can lift these weights feeling like a beast. But it’s not only that; did you know that music doesn’t only increase the quality and performance of your workout, but also it’s essential to relieving boredom?

According to The National Center for Health Research (NCHR) “In particular, music that is motivational or synchronized with your exercise is shown to have physical and psychological effects. When a song has a strong, steady beat, for example, you can pedal or run to the beat of that music, which tends to feel satisfying and may inspire you to exercise more.  The lyrics or catchy rhythm of motivational music inspires you to exercise longer or work harder during your exercise routine.”

Choosing music that you enjoy and that fits your exercise routine can help you get more out of your exercise experience. Since everyone has a different ideal workout pace and intensity, determining exactly what tempo works for you may be a trial-and-error process. And since we love creating playlists here’s the Ultimate Workout List by C-Town Chatter on Spotify.
