Revitalize your training with classical music
From the frenetic pace of rave to the elegant complexity of Ravel, discover how Beethoven's music can transform your usual exercise routine into a feel-good symphony.
Believe it or not, even Beethoven and Puccini have their reasons in the gym. Scientific research, in fact, has discovered that classical music, with its melodic ups and downs, acts on the brain in such a way as to make you almost forget about fatigue. A nice change of pace from the usual summer hits that promise to get you moving but only end up shattering your nerves.
Changing the music of your workout with a bit of classical music can be like discovering a new continent. Imagine preparing for training with Ravel's Boléro, starting the warm-up with Florence Price's “Juba Dance” and facing the most intense moments with Bizet's Prelude. What about the cool down? “La Primavera” by Vivaldi, to return to a state of rest with a smile.

Wellbeing in time with classical music
Exploring classical music during training can be like opening a window onto a new world, where physical well-being meets the pleasure of listening. Perhaps the time has come to leave behind the monotony of the usual rhythms and embrace the elegance and power of great music. Below, you'll find a carefully selected playlist to incorporate classical music into your workout regimen. Let yourself be guided by Costas Karageorghis, Dawn Rose and Elias Mouchlianitis, experts in the union between music and sport, in this innovative journey. Follow our playlist to start your revolutionary music and sports experience!

Here is the playlist compiled by the researcher Luke Howard of the Brunel University from London

1. Bolero, by Maurice Ravel, with an average tempo of 70bpm, is excellent for mental preparation before movement. The gentle start, with a tempo close to your resting heart rate, belies the transcendent power of this classic.

2. “Juba Dance“, taken from the Symphony n. 1 in E minor by Florence Price, represents a fascinating symphonic composition which, during the warm-up phase, delicately increases the heart rate. It concludes its journey in an overwhelming crescendo, preparing the listener for the subsequent phases of training.

3. The Symphony no. 40 in G minor K 550, by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, is an exciting work for the low or medium intensity phases of training. The fourth and final movement opens with a rapid series of ascending notes. This effect is also known as the Mannheim rocket, named after the musical school of the same name that invented it, a rollercoaster melody that will make your heart and lungs happy.

4. Carmen prelude to act I by Georges Bizet, has a fast-paced rhythm (128bpm) that will get you through the most demanding and high-intensity phases of your training. The exquisite melodic and harmonic characteristics of this piece allow you to relieve the sensation of pain.

5. The Four Seasons Op. 8, “Spring” by Antonio Vivaldi, is ideal for warming up and for maintaining pace when gradually returning to a state of rest. The beautifully orchestrated strings give this work a pronounced recuperative quality.
