The bloggers arrived  in the afternoon and were treated to refreshing coconut juice and fruit to get them in the healthy mind-set before sitting down to learn about the psychophysical and ergogenic effects of music in sport and exercise. This was followed by a quick introduction to nutrition and a product demo from Monster Products showcasing a range of headphones.

Music in Sport

Dr Karageorghis opened with a little group exercise using music, asking the bloggers to listen and then quickly identify how it made them feel. This formed the premise of the rest of the presentation.

Music and Sport

Music increases exercise endurance by up to 15% says Dr Karageorghis. More information can be found here.

Dr Karageorghis has even worked with us on creating a new playlist to help you enhance your work out. Would it surprise you if we said Uptown Funk by Mark Ronson was number one on his list? View the entire playlist and listen to the tracks here.

Fuel your exercise

Following an extremely educational and insightful presentation from Dr Karageorghis, Lauren Karl, a personal trainer from KB Personal Training, ran a quick warm up and down session with the bloggers. Followed by an overview of sports nutrition.

The sound

It was then over to Monster Products, who demonstrated their new iSport Super Slim Wireless Bluetooth Headphone to the bloggers. With a 15m range and up to five hours of playback, these new sport headphones are for every kind of runner.

The event was certainly music to our ears. After three fantastic presentations from the professionals, our bloggers were given the opportunity to play with the entire Monster Headphone range.
