    I usually do. I have to listen to music or watch TV. I have worked out to nothing before, but it was never as good/hard of a workout.

    It gives you a pace…and distracts me a bit from the fact that I am working out – and I hate working out.

    I have to have music when I’m cycling at the gym.

    I watch Netflix when I am at the gym. It makes time go by so much faster.

    I watch tv while working out. Don’t care for listening to music while working out.

    I listen to music during cardio. When I lift weights I will take the earbuds out and focus on my form during certain exercises. I love my music! Makes the time not so boring.

    @legenwaitforitdary:  You should add an “other” option.  I either listen to an audiobook, a podcast, or watch a tv show or movie.

    Yes — I listen to music and a C25K app.

    @lealorali:  Couch to 5K. I have an app that does the timing for me so I don’t have to pay attention to a clock.

    It depends. If I’m running when it’s dark out I don’t because I’m a worrywart and like to be super aware of my surroundings. If I’m inside or it’s light out I usually do.

    I do when I’m doing cardio, but not when I’m lifting

    @legenwaitforitdary:  This is so funny because tonight DH was freaking out because he couldn’t find his headphones anywhere and “it’s screwing up my gym routine”.  I thought he was nuts because there’s music playing at the gym anyway so I don’t see why it’s such a big deal.  

    I have listened to music, and sometimes I don’t.  I do mostly if I’m doing cardio, but for weights I don’t – the cord gets in the way.
