An introvert’s secret weapon at the gym

Workout buddiesHow does an introvert survive working out at the gym? They have have a secret weapon: music. What better way to block out the background noise, chatter, grunting, and shouting, than by playing your favourite songs? I never leave home without my ipod. It’s an ancient thing, hearkening back to my high school days, but it works well and I’ve never had a reason to replace it. Whether I’m lifting weights or going for a run, I always bring my ipod with me.

As you might expect, I have a gym-specific playlist filled with upbeat, catchy songs. My musical taste is extremely varied and changes on a constant basis. I thought I’d share a small taste of the music I listen to during a workout. If you click on the song title, it’ll take you to a youtube version, for those who may be interested 🙂
