Do You Hear The Music?

In recent research, the use of music in exercise programs has been found to:

  • Enhance the experience for participants
  • Add interest
  • Facilitate adherence
  • Lessen perceptions of difficulty, monotony, and exercise discomfort
  • Older adults showed a preference for instrumental music.

We encourage learners to read this research paper on the link between music and adherence to exercise plans.
