Let’s face it; working out can be a hard task. Gathering the strength to get up from your comfy couch and onto a treadmill is a dreaded thought for many. Most of us need something to motivate us into getting not only a beneficial, but rewarding workout. According to the Huffington Post, studies have consistently proven that music helps increase endurance and provide great energy during a workout. They have also shown that music distracts you from feeling pain and makes you less aware of the amount of energy you are exerting.
