Everyone knows you're supposed to exercise for your physical improvement, but what about your intellectual gains? If you want to get pumped in body and mind (and be the smug person in your friend group), I've got nine nonfiction audiobooks that will make you smarter while you work out. Download them to your connected device of choice and have yourself a grand old time on your next gym trip.
I love listening to audiobooks during my boring cardio workouts, but I can't keep up with a novel's storyline while I'm trying to adjust my incline or do jumping jacks. So I listen to nonfiction books instead, because I don't have to worry about missing key plot points, and I learn some great facts for party conversations. (That's what you're supposed to do in party conversations, right?)
If you've been struggling to find new podcasts and Spotify playlists to listen to while you work out, try swapping a nonfiction audiobook into the rotation to see how you like it. There are plenty of great, educational audiobooks out there that won't put you to sleep on the treadmill, and you're overlooking a lot of great workout listening material.
