In addition researchers have discovered that certain types of music will have an increased effect than others. Specifically music tracks containing a minimum of 140 beats per minute have been observed to produce the maximum results during a workout. Fast or fast tempo music has been observed to provide the listener with a vast amount of information for the brain to process which inadvertently distracts the person from the physical sensations and signs of fatigue which are the body’s natural warning signs to stop exercising.

Exercise enthusiasts who are more advanced and are trained to exercise at an intense level may not find listening to music to have that much of a great impact to their workout. On the other hand the experience of the average beginner who at most will maintain a workout routine three to four times per week may benefit greatly from adding music to their workout routine. Moderate to beginner exercisers will find listening to music as a kind of a pleasant distraction helping them to achieve a sense of motivation and commitment to an otherwise seemingly boring routine.
