YOUR FITNESS IS TIED TO YOUR UNDERSTANDING OF MUSICAL PREFERENCE
Every PLYOGA class is unique in a few ways. They are always changing, they are catering to the demographic within a class, and the class is NOT cued by music, making the track choices open to the instructor. I have literally taken PLYOGA classes where I was not inspired to give myself the best workout possible because I could not deal with the music being played.
Music is at the heart of many independent group exercise formats. 19 out of 20 people on a gym floor also have some sort of musical device in play for their workout. Most runners hit the trail with their IPods. When you see athletes entering their locker rooms upon arrival to their stadiums, it has become a staple to be wearing their inspiration to greatness in their ear in the form of BEATS or whatever else.
This has lead us to add something to the ever growing list of fitness advice. We believe this advice should land as #1 or #2 on the list. Do you want to get started on an efficient journey to a better and healthier you? GET MUSIC THAT MOTIVATES YOU!
FOLLOW THESE 3 TIPS!
- Figure out what music motivates you: This may be music that you do not typically listen to while driving in the car. If it's in your ear, or out of your control in a studio, no one will know what you have on! BE UNIQUE.
- If working out alone, invest in a musical device or download music that you love (and that will motivate you) onto your phone.
- Working out in group exercise: Stay motivated by giving yourself FUN FITNESS! Look into the style of the instructors who are going to be your first impression in fitness. Go to classes that share the style that resonates with you. Fitness is not boring or out of touch. The classes you are picking are.
DO YOU WANT TO JUST WORKOUT AT HOME, OR ON YOUR DECK, OR A PARK, OR IN A BOX WITH A FOX AND PLAY YOUR OWN MUSIC REAL LOUD?
