There are two types of gym days: those when you feel like you could run a marathon, and those when even 30 minutes on the elliptical seems like torture.
What to do when motivation runs low? Most of us turn to music for a little exercise mojo. But it turns out, listening to your favorite tunes isn't just a pleasant distracton—some studies have actually found that listening to music actually makes the physical exertion of exercise feel easier.
So keep those headphones handy. When it comes to getting in a better workout, music is definitely your best exercise partner.
