In previous research, Dr. Costas also found that playing music during exercise can help increase motivation so you are positive when you exercise. Then, the intensity and the spirit of the exercise are also higher.
“This means that when the body says stop, music has the power to improve the mood signaled through the body, so you will still exercise,” said Dr. Costas as reported by the Sydney Morning Herald. Meanwhile, the personal trainee and founder of Urban Fitness Solution, Stanley Sithole, admitted that the choice of music during the sport depends on the taste of each person.
