A recent LG survey revealed some interesting data about when music is most necessary.

Many people practice the “new year new me” philosophy this time of year and music just may be the secret to sticking to fitness goals.

The LG survey found that music is vital to workouts showing that active Americans rank music as more of a necessity during their workouts over during their commutes, taking a shower, or even during sex.

Some of the figures the survey found were surprising to some.

  • Sheer Necessity of Music During Exercise: More than 9 in 10 fitness enthusiasts say music is vital to their workouts, saying they’re more likely to work out for longer (87%), have more energy (87%) and get a better overall workout (87%), if listening to tunes.
  • Over one in five say they’d completely end their workout if their music stopped playing
  • Let’s (Not) Talk About Sex, Baby: The survey found that music is more of a necessity during exercise (77%) than during a commute (71%), shower (32%) and even sex (24%).
  • Most Popular Workout Jams: Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger,” Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk” and Eminem’s “Lose Yourself”
  • T. Swift Treadmill Moments: 22% of runners surveyed admit to having had “a Taylor Swift moment” and falling on a treadmill because they got lost in their music.
  • Music, the Ultimate Trainer: 3 out of 4 people surveyed said they are more likely to rely on music than a friend/trainer to motivate them during a workout.

Good luck with those fitness goals!
