Music in Sport and Exercise : An Update on Research and Applicat Submitted by: Costas Karageorghis and David-Lee Priest – Brunel University Abstract In spring 1999, almost a decade ago, the first author published in The Sport Journal an article titled “Music in Sport and Exercise: Theory and Practice.” The present article’s origins are in that earlier work and the first author’s research while a master’s student at the United States Sports Academy in 1991–92. To a greater degree than in the original 1999 article, this article focuses on the applied aspects of music in sport and exercise. Moreover, it highlights some new research trends emanating not only from our own publications, but also from the work of other prominent researchers in the field.
How does music affect exercise—and the exerciser? A previous review of the literature on the subject took a physiological approach, investigating the evidence-based findings on how different types of music affect physical results, such as strength, gait, endurance, performance and motor skill acquisition (Kravitz 1994). In this article, we will take a slightly different tack, reviewing the ergogenic and psychophysical effects of music in an attempt to understand the relationship between the physical stimulus of the music and the sensory responses that may enable the exerciser to achieve better results. The prevailing belief is that music facilitates exercise performance by reducing the sensation of fatigue, increasing psychological arousal, promoting relaxation and improving motor coordination (Szabo, Small & Leigh 1999).

Just as important as their broken-in shoes and heart rate monitor is their source of motivation, inspiration and distraction: their tunes. Running with music has become so common that the two biggest names in both industries, Nike and Apple, have been joined at the hip with the Nike + iPod combination. So, what is it about music and running, or any exercise, that feels so right? Why music makes exercise easier - Fitness
