As music lovers, I’m sure you listen to sublime beautiful music while you exercise, for example for your daily jogging session (because you exercise, don’t you?).
Well, now you have a new friend: Jog.fm will help you find the right music for running, cycling or walking.
Studies have shown that listening to music during exercise works wonders on the mind and body. Not only can it improve results by acting as a motivational tool and as a distraction from fatigue, but it can help improve lung function and it might even make you smarter.
Jog.fm sorts songs and playlists by tempo and style to help users find music that best fits the pace of their workouts, whatever is among running, walking or cycling.
Since you do know well that running, walking and cycling are three different things, so does Jog.fm: that means the beats that go with these particular exercises go along with your heartbeats. Therefore, the songs chosen for you by Jog.fm for running will be quite different from those for cycling.
Running songs would be more upbeat, more energetic since you get your fuel from these tunes. Cycling songs instead will be steadier and mellower and a bit more soothing. Walking songs eventually are more in the middle. Not as upbeat as the songs like the running songs but not soothing either.
Now you even have the Jog.fm iPhone app which is not taking music from jog.fm or other sources but it does a great job of identifying the beat rate of your existing music and matching it to your pace (either by detecting your movements or by using a set minutes/mile rate).
So now you have no more excuses not to run on Sunday morning: in fact, you could end up discovering new music and, without even realizing it, stay fit for the rest of the week.
