ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., Dec. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- What do you need more: music during your workout or music during your morning commute?
The majority of active Americans feel music is a necessity to get them through their workout – more than who feel similarly about listening during their commute.1 And that includes respondents in California and New York who may have to face the grid-locked 405 and crowded New York subway, respectively.
No one knows this more than Beverly Hills-based personal trainer Gunnar Peterson. Not only is he the man responsible for many sculpted physiques walking down runways, appearing on the silver screen, and running down the field, he's also responsible for curating playlists that are just as diverse as his training methods.
"It's all about the music," says Gunnar. "The songs you play during your workout can make all the difference in your motivation, as can your headphones – especially if you're the type of person whose workout stops when your music does."
That's why Gunnar teamed up with LG to design the LG TONE-Up workout – a circuit-inspired fitness regimen designed to be performed while wearing the LG TONE Active+® or LG FORCE headsets, ensuring that neither a lack of music – nor sweat and wires – get in the way.
"I'm always looking for headphones that'll make my clients work just as hard when I'm not there, so they need something comfortable that keeps the music going, but also gives them freedom to perform some of the challenging moves in my workouts," Gunnar says.
Not only are these headsets designed to stay in place for even the most intense movements like Bulgarian split squats and deadlifts, they are water and sweat resistant; so no matter how hard you go, the music won't stop, thanks to built-in external speakers on the LG TONE Active+ and Qualcomm® aptX™2 on the LG FORCE.
"The workout is high-intensity to mirror what I'd normally put together for my clients, but you can work up to it based on your fitness level," says Gunnar. "And there's no equipment required, so there are no excuses."
Debuting today, the LG TONE-Up workout consists of ten moves that are repeated in a circuit for as many rounds as possible, and can be done by anyone, anywhere. And for those moves that typically require weights, you can substitute using other items in your home like cans of soup, water bottles, firewood, "a newborn, or even a toddler if you're feeling strong!" Gunnar jokes.
