Athletes, gym freaks, workout lovers and runners– these all resonate with the beats that keep their feet moving and boost their motivational levels. For a productive workout, none will skip their iPod or smartphone on any given day. Why? Because a good playlist is all it takes to achieve the set targets. While gym or cardio workouts call for a fast paced rhythm, yoga or Pilates would settle for ambient and invigorating tunes. In no case can we separate music from a good workout!
As per Scientificamerica dot com,
