It’s proven that music is a motivator. Many of the world’s top athletes, including Steph Curry, Damian Lillard and Jerome Boateng, have a personal soundtrack to help push them on to their next fitness level. Whether you’re an athlete or someone who simply likes to stay in shape, having the right music to suit your fitness regime can make all the difference.

Since most of us aren’t working out in a private gym, we need to listen to our personal playlist through headphones. For those looking to take their workout up a notch, we’ve compiled a list of some of our top tech for those in training.

For the more determined athlete constantly striving for that fitness apex, the JBL Under Armour Headphone Wireless headphones feature JBL’s Pure Bass Performance to give you the best possible sound. These also fit into the ears perfectly, thanks to the TwistLock™ Technology that secures to the bowl of the ear, rather than the inner ear. Nothing stops your workout like your headphone falling out of your ear, so just lock, and go. The headphones also provide the added benefit of connecting to Under Armour’s digital community, which allows you to track and analyze your fitness activity so you can see the improvement.

If you want to truly zone out as you reach for optimum performance, the JBL Reflect Aware comes with noise cancellation, so you don't miss a single beat. The great news, safety comes into play here too as the headphone gives you the ability to mix in sound from your environment to give awareness of your surroundings. This is perfect for the athlete running or biking outside that needs to be aware of cars, horns and other warning sounds.

And if you're running at night, you might want a JBL Reflect Mini, which offer the smallest sports design from JBL. They’re lightweight, sweat proof and come with a highly reflective cable for extra visibility at night. These were designed with intense workouts in mind and are so light you’ll forget you’re wearing them while actively participating in anything from running to cross-fit for hours on end.

Whatever your fitness goals or personal style there’s a huge range of music tech designed specifically to make you move, and more importantly won’t fall out of your ears while you’re running, jumping or caught up in some intense circuit training.
