Tech Talk: Keeping In Step | VideoJerame Novak | 10/3/2012
Julie Schreiner works out five times a week, and music plays a big part in her workout.
"It just makes the time go faster. You can still watch the TV and you listen to music in your ears, and it`s fabulous."
And she is not alone.
"Music is gonna help our workouts be more enjoyable and anything that helps get us out there, be more compliant and work hard is a good thing," said Sandford Women`s Health Center Director Melanie Carvell.
In fact, picking the right music can help you keep your pace.
"Our body tends to fall into the rhythm with the music. So if you`re running, for instance, your best pace for running would be about 170-180 beats per minute," Carvell said.
If you need help putting a list together websites, like jog.fm, can help.
Another feature of the jog.fm website is the ability to create a playlist based on how fast you want to run, walk or cycle. The website will also let you customize your list by the type of music you like.
When it comes to headphones, be safe: don`t have the volume too loud and don`t wear headphones when you`re cycling along roads or in groups.
