Working out is as much of a mental act as it is a physical one. Therefore, all of your senses are typically more alert, which can play a role in how you exercise. Health clubs realize this and look to optimize every part of the experience, including what you hear. Making sure your guests are able to listen to their preferred playlists when using machines can be key to a great workout. Here’s why:
Music can get one in the zone.
When listening to music, guests can get into a trance exercise state that helps them continue to strive in their workout.
It maximizes effort.
Ever want to stay on the treadmill a little longer just to finish out the song? Your health club members are always looking for an extra push and a good song can do that.
A good beat can often keep pace.
When doing cardio, it’s important to find a good rhythm. Playlists that are perfected for the gym often have a great beat to make sure you breathe correctly.
Motivates you to move.
A great workout song expresses a tone and message to move your body. It can be the ideal way to loosen up and mentally prep you to take on those reps.
Music scientifically releases endorphins.
It is proven that a good song can release the same chemicals in your brain that happiness and good exercise does. That means your guests can leave your gym feeling pumped.
So when it comes to improving the health club experience for your members, make sure that they’re able to utilize their music, along with any other needs. For more management tips or a free demo of our software, call us at 1-800-227-6194.
