Pump Up the Volume

As long as I can remember I have loved sports. As a kid growing up, I vividly remember going to different sporting events with my Dad and all the fun we had. The most memorable time for me was when my parents surprised me with tickets to go see the US Woman's National Soccer Team play in the 1996 Olympics! I was in awe and to this day one of the things I remember most a certain song they played while warming up for each game. Crazy right?! My point is not only is music powerful and memorable but music and exercise go together like peanut butter and jelly.

Studies done supported this fact. Researchers say that music music improves the exercise experience by making the brain interpret the signs of fatigue differently!
I know for me my ipod is key in my exercise regime, I can just feel the energy once a "good: song come on. Check out the articles below for more and don't forget to pump up the volume next time you are hitting the gym or the trails.
