We know how it is: you WANTED to keep your 2021 fitness goals...but this year feels an AWFUL LOT like 2020 so far...and you’re having trouble motivating for that run, bike ride, yoga class, etc. (Yes, we ARE still talking about our New Year’s Resolutions, even in March.)
Music can help! In a 2019 consumer survey of 1,000 people conducted by Feed Media Group (FMG)—a B2B music streaming company supporting MIRROR, FightCamp, Tonal, and dozens of other fitness brands—2/3 of respondents said that they’d skip a workout altogether if they couldn’t listen to music. And a detailed study by the Sports Medicine – Open journal found that people work out 28% longer per week when they have the right music.
So what’s the right music? Fortunately, FMG has data on millions of workout sessions with music. Here are some of the BEST exercise songs you can put to use in keeping your fitness resolution for 2021. And when in doubt, play Dua Lipa’s already-classic Future Nostalgia album.
