    How many of you cannot enter the gym without your phone, or some form of device to listen some tunes while you work out? Personally, music drives my workout, especially if I am listening to a track that was my all time favorite back in the days. It will mean that I forget about exercise and just go into day dreaming; memories with those tunes and before you know it, the workout is over and done.

    I need music while exercising. The angrier the music, the better. It helps me forget about my fatigue and I get a better workout in. What songs are most often in your workout playlist? Killing in the Name by Rage Against the Machine, Lose Yourself, by Eminem, Super Shooter, by Rip Slyme, Excuse Me, Mr., by No Doubt are usually on my playlist. Plenty of others too.

    Music while working out is an absolute necessity. The only downside of this is when earphones don't stay put during movement but I am willing to put up with this to have my workout playlist. Even with taking a simple jog, I need music to distract and focus my thoughts on anything but the fact that I'm running. I've tried running without music however I just focus on the actual act of running too much, and the more I think about the fact that I'm running the more likely I am to stop more frequently or end my run early. Also music helps me to keep a good rhythm while exercising.

    I suffer from social anxiety, and music at the gym really helps me stay focused. It’s like I’m in my own world, no one else matters. The chatter, the grunting, the random stares are all in the background when I have music in my ears. I find it also helps me push myself harder because I can’t hear my own grunts and therefore don’t feel self conscious and just continue on with my work out. I listen to alot of Abba, not sure why but the songs just get me pumped and put me in a good mood. I also like to sync my movements with the beat. I don’t understand how people can work out without music. It’s a must for me.

    For concentration or motivation, I think it can be good to listen to music. I like to listen to music that makes you feel confident but also puts you in a good mood while trying to get fit.
