When it comes to getting up and moving, the music you have on can make or break maintaining focus and motivation during a workout. No really–the part of your brain that controls movement is stimulated when music plays, helping your body to complete repetitive movements more efficiently. That’s why keeping upbeat, fast-paced tunes playing when you hit the beach for a jog makes the run go faster, both literally and figuratively.
The same goes for footwear–if your shoes aren’t comfortable or ill-fitting, it can throw off your rhythm or, worse, result in an injury of sorts. It’s important to have the proper shoe for the workout at hand–certain environments call for different materials, tread levels, or even certain shoe laces. Plus “look good, feel good” isn’t just an old adage–feeling confident in yourself is another motivating factor for working out.
Don’t sweat it–OluKai has you covered on both fronts. If you’re wondering what to wear or listen to while working out, we made the perfect workout playlist featuring high tempo, upbeat songs sure to get your blood pumping and endorphins going. Plus shop our favorite styles perfect for runs, hikes, high intensity workouts, or whatever other ways you want to move.
