It looks like The Huffington Post know a good idea when they see one. This week they launched ‘HuffPost Workouts‘ – playlists designed with exercise in mind. While I could hold this against them, as they say it’s “not news to fitness professionals” that a favorite track can boost energy levels as well as make your workout more enjoyable:
Group fitness instructors have long known this phenomenon to be true. When a song comes on that someone loves, their energy output automatically increases. Conversely, if someone hears a song they don’t like, their energy level drops off and the work may even feel harder.
This week, I’m going to do it slightly different, and put a poll on facebook. I want you to tell me your favorite tune from three of the “Best Workout Songs of All Time” (according to Men’s Fitness), and I’ll add it next week. While not all on my iPod, they’re all different styles, so everyone should be able to find something they like. So get over to facebook and vote (click here)!!
