Music Revs Your Workout

A recent study conducted by Brunel University’s School of Sport and Education has revealed that, music can significantly increase a person’s physical endurance (up to 15%) and make the experience of cardiovascular exercise far more positive. There is nothing like a great Justin Timberlake remix of Sexyback to keep you going for those last 10 minutes on the treadmill. An energetic playlist may be just the thing to push you through your workout and even burn some extra calories.

  2. Here’s the challenge: How can you get people to understand that, regardless of what they think, they actually may not be working hard enough to reach their personal goals? It’s an extremely delicate subject to address. People do not appreciate being told they are not working hard enough—and they will usually do everything they can to discredit anyone who tells them so and/or deflect the blame away from themselves. Unfortunately, until a person can come to grips with reality, the chance for success will be limited.

  3. When you don’t feel your hard work is paying off, what happens? What do you tend to do during those times when you don’t achieve results equal to all the hard work you’re putting in? How do you feel?
