Study: Trance is the best music to work out to


A new study done by athletics trainer David Siik of Equinox has found that Trance is the best music to work out to. 1


Siik used the Mozart Effect, a study from 1991 by Dr. Alfred A. Tomatis which showed that listening to music by the composer had healing effects on the brain, as a jump-off for his study; did the theory worked in relation to exercise and did the music have to be classical?(He used music by artists like Armin van Buuren and Radion 6.)

What he found was that hi-energy/trance music was better for athletes. If they worked out to music with no lyrics, they could better concentrate on what they were doing:

“If you have, say, Justin Timberlake feeding you this awesome story and then you have a coach, David Siik, telling you to subtract 1.8 from your personal record, and add a 2 per cent incline, I believe it’s overstimulating your language processing center and studies support that. The multitasking that is caused by lyrical music in the background dramatically reduces focus and retention.”1

Siik says for those doing a quick workout that doesn’t involve decisions, any music will do. However, if you are planning something a bit more challenging, he promises it will change your entire experience.
