Audio Motivation

Music can push an individual to his or her maximum limit, whether you are lifting weights, running or boxing, its a massive motivational tool. Listening to our favorite upbeat songs triggers a positive emotional response, which can turn a dull Monday morning run into an enjoyable exercise.

According to various studies, listening to music with high rates of beats per minute (BPM), results into a faster pace of exercise and a higher physical endurance. Usually songs that match your steps per minute (for running/walking) are easier to synchronize with and also help you keep focused. If you have a good pedometer, you can measure your steps per minute and compare the results with the BPM of the songs you listen to - for a manual BPM check, you can use .
