Not in the mood to workout? Maybe you need to pep things up and turn up the music. Workout music not only makes working out more fun but also boosts your mood. You feel an instant rush of energy when you hear a familiar tune. Especially if the rhythm is poppy and it makes you happy.
The hormone serotonin, also known as the feel-good hormone gets released when you listen to songs that are pleasing. A happy, motivated workout is always a good workout.
Some songs have memories attached to them and some have meaningful lyrics that help lift your spirits. Because of this, you feel motivated, and you can work out for a longer time and also put aside the small pains and blocks along the way.
Music makes repetitive routines more fun and gives it more life. An added bonus is that workout music also exercises your brain as it engages with every neural system.
We’ve put together a mix of motivating, energy-boosting pop songs for you to workout and level up to. So, put on your headphones, or turn up the speakers and let’s get fit.
