A study done at UBCO was featured in a Martha Stewart article about the correlation between music and exercise activities.

“Music is typically used as a dissociative strategy. This means that it can draw your attention away from the body’s physiological responses to exercise such as increased heart rate and sore muscles,” said Matthew Stork, a postdoctoral fellow in the school of health and exercise sciences at UBCO.
