Tired of listening to the same old songs when hitting the gym? Have you been jamming to the one playlist you made years ago on repeat? If you feel like you’re in a rut when it comes to your exercise music, it may be time to find new running playlists that can beat the boredom — and, also help you make the most of your workout. Science has shown the music you listen to can can actually play an important role in your fitness routine. As Healthline reported, your playlist can encourage you to run longer, help you concentrate, and even improve your coordination during a workout.
