For some people, music can be an escape for them. Instead of utilizing therapy, music can take their situations and help them melt away. It may also boost your mood when you are feeling down. Your favorite music can take you from the physical state and take you away into a mental state of mind, away from the stressful situation.

While working out to music, when your body syncs up with the rhythm, you become more efficient with your workout and use 7 percent less oxygen than someone who is not utilizing music.

Music can help us get our heart rates up as well. If you choose a song with a high tempo, then the heart will change to that tempo while you work out. with a high tempo and high heart rate, you will end up working more to do the same work out but you will maintain more energy and burn more weight.

While utilizing music during your workout, not only do you have something to distract you from the physical challenge, you also will end up working longer as well as harder. Tests show that on average, people walking with music walked on average 4 miles farther than people walking with nothing.

Your body can also show it's muscle memory by pacing itself to the music you listen to. if you are getting ready for a competition, by listening to a fast pace song, your muscles will speed up to match the tempo of that song. Then on the day of the competition, your muscles will still be in tune from working out with the song.
