First you need to identify what kind of a person you are. As ABC News found out there are two types of people who exercise: associator and dissociator. The first one do not like music and can do their work out in silence since they focus on their heart rate, breathing, and muscle tension. The other one, dissociator are those that focus to anything that can distract them from the hard work – like music. And if you’re a dissociator, there are certain songs that can help you do your workout more efficiently.

Dr. Costas Karageorghis of Brunel University, London said that listening to music can result to a more intense workout and can boost your endurance by up to 15%. That’s not a small number and that’s the very reason more and more people have their earphones stuck up their ears as they sweat out.
