Music + Workout = Important to Me


I do not know everyone else, but music is highly important to me when working out. Without my headphones and my iPod I can not even be bothered working out. Usually gyms play music I can not stand because they have to please everyone who works out there. A class also has good music for me to workout to. I use to take this spin class on Mondays but I had to stop. I could not stand the music. I am 25 years old and the music was a little old fashion for my taste. Granted, Edith next to me loved it is really hard to please everyone. I am just saying music is really important to me with my workouts. It makes time go faster.


Not only this, but I do not want to hear anything out of the norm at the gym. For example..myself. I do not want to hear the loud breathing I am creating or the machine. I also do not want to hear others. For example..there is a guy I run into sometimes..and he sings at the top of his lungs the music he is listening to on his really annoys me. I feel like if I wear my headphones and listen to my music then I escape the world around me. I feel like it is just me in the gym and that is what I want. I do not want to feel like I am in a crowded space while singing Larry is next to me. I want to enjoy my workout and music helps me.

My music is sort of all over the place because it is in ABC order but I hope to have it down so it is warm up, working out, intense, and cool down. I love music. What do you all think about working out with music? Is it a must? What do you listen to?
