Let’s be honest. The only enjoyable part of any workout is the music playing in your ears. Some studies even suggest that music improves physical performance. For starters, it acts as a ‘distractor’, diverting your attention away from the workload and monitoring your pain receptors. If you find a really good song, your brain neurons may even synchronize with the music, making it easier to develop muscle memory for repetitive actions (such as pull-up jumpers, curveball pitches, and dance routines). If this sort of stuff interests you, we highly recommend checking out Dr. Daniel J. Levitin and his book “Your Brain on Music“.
Though this is the case for most athletes, swimmers don’t have the luxury of plugging in their favorite pair of headphones and doing 25 laps in the lane pool. This is quite unfortunate because music should sound its best underwater. All other unnecessary stresses are drowned out by the water, leaving only the sweet symphony in your ears. This is exactly the reason that Underwater Audio’s Waterproof iPod is so popular. Though they may look like any old Apple iPod at first glance, they have been professionally treated to be 100% waterproof. They come with a pair of short cord earbuds (which are obviously waterproof), and a ‘no-bullshit’ 2-year warranty. The Waterproof iPod is even endorsed by Rebecca Soni, a two time Olympic gold medalist who has designed an exclusive 30-minute workout for its users.
