Every day and every hour, you have to put on the whole armour of God.  You have to guard your heart, your eyes and ears at all times. This means that even when you are at the gym, you must never get sidetracked by what you listen to.

The gym plays worldly music that may lead you into temptation. You can safeguard your ears during a workout and still get an explosive pump by listening to upbeat Christian workout music.

The bible is very clear about keeping your heat pure at all times – Proverbs 4:23-27 New Living Translation (NLT)

“Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life. Avoid all perverse talk; stay away from corrupt speech.

Look straight ahead, and fix your eyes on what lies before you. Mark out a straight path for your feet; stay on the safe path. Don’t get sidetracked; keep your feet from following evil.”

Your body is the temple of God, you should keep it healthy and in shape by exercising.

And, as you know, exercise requires constant motivation.  There are plenty of smart ways to get motivated to workout, and one of them is by listening to upbeat Christian music.
