Music has the unique ability to be many things to
many people. It can be a mood changer, mood-setter, or simply express

What songs tend to have the best effects? Typically
songs that have a 120-140 beats per minute (BPM) ratio have the most
significant change in an exerciser. Meaning a song like “Timber” by
Kesha and Pitbull (130 bpm) could have a different effect on you

Depending what you are listening to music can
either keep you on pace, or erratically change it. While exercising, we
often find ourselves working out to the rhythm of what we are listening
to. We would like for that rhythm and pace to be steady, however some
music can cause dips and spikes in our pacing.
Find out what works for you! The great part about music is one size doesn’t fit all, but there is something for ALL of us.
