Today when I went out to run I decided to try out a new app that I found in AppsGonefree this morning called TrailMix. TrailMix is a music player combined with a beat analyzer, meaning that the app senses how you are moving and then remixes your song by matching your current rate of pace by speeding up or slowing down the tempo of your music selection. The app is simple to use all you do is choose what you want to listen to and start walking, jogging, exercising or whatever you do and TrailMix will take care of the rest.
The app shows how you are moving through a speedometer gauge when the needle is red the app is sensing how you are moving so just start moving! If you want to control the pace of your music manually simply tap and drag the needle to the desired speed and the needle will turn green to indicate that you are on ‘cruise’ to return to automatic mode just tap the middle of the speedometer.
The TrailMix app is great for working out and is said to help you preform at your bodies maximum potential.
“According to scientific research, synchronizing movements with music enables athletes to perform more efficiently, resulting in greater endurance.”
Karageorghis, C., & Priest, D. (2008). Music in Sport and Exercise: An Update on Research and Application. The Sport Journal.
TrailMix is a great app whether you are a hardcore gym enthusiast or if you are more of a walk around the block kinda person this app will allow you to experience your music in a whole new way. TrailMix is available in the app store for free for 72 hours from January 16th to the 18th.
