Need some extra oomph in your January workouts? Never underestimate the power of a playlist!
Music, from the lyrics to the tempo, can “acutely affect performance by changing your mind-set or distracting from discomfort”, according to Dr Costas Karageorghis, author of ‘Applying Music in Exercise and Sport’.
We’ve picked out these tracks that make getting out of bed on a dark, cold winter’s morning to exercise a whole lot easier. And if you follow digmefitness on Spotify, you’ll be able to see our playlists specifically created for working out.
