Convert a Lot: Beats That Move You

We all march to the beat of our own drummers, and the same goes for running or any version of cardio. Matching the beat of your music to your exercise pace is an excellent way to pump up your workout. With the help of Convert a Lot, you can do just that.

Play your favorite workout tune and tap your keyboard or mouse in time to the beat (your wrist will get a workout too). The site displays the beats per minute real time. For cardio workouts your best bet is to find songs between 120 and a 150 beats per minute. I think designing playlists for all kinds of workouts, be they runs or StepMill climbs, is a great way to motivate yourself. First, you create the playlist, and then you just have to test it by going to the gym. So let's face the music and run.

You read my mind today Fit! Last night I downloaded some new uptempo songs into my workout playlist on my iPod and this morning I feel like it could use a logical flow to match the changing pace of my workout. Definitely checking this out!
