With summer in the Northern Hemisphere upon us it is time to tone up the body but it's not always the easiest thing to psych yourself up for the moment. PaceDJ is a new health and fitness application that adds a new dimension to the exercise regime whether you walk, run or cycle. This great looking app for your Android or iOS iDevices allows you to synchronize your exercise pace with the relevant beats-per-minute selections from your own music collection.
PaceDJ is a music discovery website that has introduced Android and iOS apps to help motivate runners, walkers or cyclists with music by allowing them to synchronize their exercise pace with the tempo of songs already on their mobile devices. The built-in pedometer technology helps users calculate the beats-per-minute (BPM) best suited for them while the website makes it easy to search for workout-inspired playlists, estimate target pace and find additional songs within a target BPM range. The PaceDJ iOS and Android running apps build music mixes based on your target pace or tempo, marked in steps-per-minute (rotations-per-minute for cyclists), using songs on a user’s iOS or Android with matching tempos in beats-per minute (BPM). Personal variations are very important when syncing steps, strides or rotations with music tempos. PaceDJ recognizes that each person’s height, gender, age and fitness level influence their stride length and pace. These factors are taken into account when songs are suggested based on BPM. The apps can be used without the purchase of additional music when a user has exercise-appropriate songs already on their device. You can shuffle and prioritize songs in mixes based on preference. Additionally, if you don’t know what BPM is best for running or walking, the pedometer technology can measure your pace automatically. When one is motivated and paced by the music you love it is easier to attain and exceed your workout goal.
The beauty of using a health and fitness application like PaceDJ is that it gives you the opportunity to play the music that is familiar to you on your own device. I don't know about you but I truly hate running without the music I love playing and I don't think I would bother at all if I was forced to listen to Jessie J on a jog. And there is no doubt in my own mind that music is a motivator so it makes good sense to play music at a BPM rate that matches the pace of your walk, run or cycling exploits. PaceDJ is a very cheap way to get you up and running.
