    That is why I don't even bother carrying when I run. I run 5 to 13 miles a few days a week and on Saturday, my long slow run, I will walk, run 15 to 20.

    When I'm shooting I rock to "Richard Simmons Sweatin' to the Oldies"

    Really makes me want to kill out that paper silhouette target... with a vengeance!

    In all honesty I get into that "zone" from the pistols own action rhythm... no music needed.

    When I'm doing my HIIT cardio (high intensity interval training) I always listen to classic rock

    Yep. Most entertaining to blast off .45 ACP or large bore magnum revolvers to Tchaikovsky's "1812 Overture, in time with the cannon fire.

    Tchaikovsky - 1812 Overture (Full with Cannons) - YouTube (at 12:05 and 14:15).

    Turn up loud!

    Being old school (LEO father) trained, I don't think anything like that belongs on the range for safety reasons like BigFish stated above. I think when safety of everyone is on the line, you need to be able to hear shouted commands, etc. My dad would FREAK if I started listening to music while shooting. Even now with him being 73 y/o, he would still kick my butt

    Yes, but do you listen to music when you run? I'm guessing you don't.

    Best way to keep you fit is running and while running if you listen to music then it would be more refreshing and energetic while gyming or working out you can listen to your favorite music.
