Abstract

Music affects the body in different ways. The goal of this project was to determine how music affects an exerciser and build an Android app to optimize exercise performance. Through use of a smart watch, heart rate and step rate were collected and matched to values assigned to local music files to play to the listener. This caused the song to change based on current exercise performance to either enhance it, stabilize it, or decrease it.
