Music Motivation Found Most Effective In Increasing The Drive To Exercise
New studies find that majority of fitness enthusiasts find music motivation the most important when they are working out. A research by SOCAN and Leger, the Research Intelligence Group, finds that music plays a big difference in staying committed and motivated in achieving fitness.
The Canadian study finds that 78 percent of those questioned rate music as important as having proper gym facilities and gears. Another 68 percent say that good music is like having a good pair of workout shoes.
Interestingly, Millennials claim that they need music as much as they need water while working out. Finally, 60 percent of those surveyed believe that music helps time go faster and make sweating out more fun.
Jennifer Brown, Vice president of Licensing at SOCAN, states the study confirms the conventional belief that music affects mood. Furthermore, it shows the need for music motivation in gyms and fitness clubs, The Province reports.
She further elaborates that music used wisely can benefit businesses in fitness centers as it promotes well being, comfort, and fun among exercise enthusiasts.
SOCAN is music business organization that connects more than four-million music creators worldwide and more than a quarter-million businesses and individuals in Canada. It promotes fair compensation among music writers, artists, and producers.
Meanwhile, another survey by LG, shows similar results as the study mentioned above. The highlights of the finding includes the fact that 9 out of 10 fitness enthusiasts work out longer when they listen to their favorite tunes.
Also, 3 out of 4 surveyed reports preferring listening to listening to good music than working out with a trainer or a friend, the WTKR says.
Furthermore, 1 in 5 says that they will stop their work out if their music stopped playing.
With the rise in obesity and other weight-related health problems as reported earlier, music motivation might just be what people need to start getting in shape.
