How Movies and Music can help you to Stay Fit

The history of music is very old; you can find a big role of music in the history of more than 2000 years. We all know that music is a best way to help you to release all your tensions and give a good mood, it can also keep you motivated. The same happens with movies too. OK, the movies are not that old, the history of movie came into existence after the invention of Camera. But the history is full of the cousin brother of movie i.e Drama and play. The Movie is the digital version of the drama. The both music and movie is also a main source of entertainment in our life. The music and movie both help to live a stress free life and we all know when we are happy from inner then we would be fit.


Today I will take you a little deeper to tell you how both movies and music works like a medicine to keep your body fit and obviously active.

1st Point- Movie and Music directly Hit Your Brain

Have you ever noticed that while listening to your favorite song you start singing the song to the tune? Yes, that’s common that you might me thinking some serious thing, but as soon as you hear the song you start whispering. That is the power of music because it directly hit your brain to release all the tension from your head.

2nd Point- It Change Your Mood

As I mentioned in the first point, the music hit your brain directly and release all your tensions. When your brain forgets all the tensions you automatically enters into a good mood. Now let’s imagine that you are watching a good comedy movie using any of the best movie streaming websites on your laptop and there is some really funny act goes, in that situation would you cry? No, right? When you smile or add your emotion with movie, you forget all the your own problem and help you to change your mood.

3rd Music Boost the Brain Chemicals

When you listen to any of your favorite movies, it directly hit your brain, which results you a good mood. This also helps the brain to boost its strength by improving its one of the brain chemical. When that chemical improves it automatically improves your strength to think wisely and taking the right decision.

The chemical it releases also known as a Feel Good chemical which mean you will be in the good mood. There are people who use to listen to music while working and according to them that music helps them to get the maximum output.

4th Learn From Movie

There are thousands of kinds of movie and most of the movie teaches you something, some moral. There are also tons of motivational movies available which helps you to achieve what you are looking for in your life. Those motivational movies create a kind of zeal in yourself to achieve some kind of task. When you get what you wanted then it is obvious that you feel good and that ultimately leaves your body stresses less and that result of good health.

There are hundreds of benefits but the above were the most possible reasons.

Hi Amanda,
I just wanted to write you and let you know you have a new fan base in Greenville, NC where I am finishing up my Pediatric residency! I have been doing your videos for about 1 month and my body has literally transformed. I have lost 7 percent body fat and am so much stronger and more muscular. I have always been a runner, but never did any strength training and really didn’t do much else besides run, but now I am more toned and can do exercises that when I first started your videos I couldn’t do. I wish I had before and after pictures for you. The biggest thing is that people keep asking me what I am doing and are very impressed. My girlfriends here started doing it and are addicted. One of my friends who never exercises started doing it and is so sore, but notices such a difference already in a week! Thank you again for changing my attitude about health and fitness!! I hope one day I will get to meet you! Take care.

Hi Amanda!!! Your 14 Day Plan is seriously life changing…I was a little intimidated to try it as I’m not good with diets OR exercise but was shocked at how easy it was to follow and how much I actually enjoyed it! Not only did I lose 12lbs in 14 days, but I learned so so much and it has changed the way I live my life – I’m recommending your program to EVERYONE I know!

Amanda, Amanda, Amanda. I really want to take this opportunity to give you a MEGA thank you for all the workouts you’ve produced and the 14 Day Plan that changed my life. They’ve helped me more than any other method I’ve tried. Especially the gym. I sweat, see effects and even get EXCITED a lot more about these than going to the gym. I’ve seen changes in my body already and if it weren’t for you, I wouldn’t of even been motivated to move!!! So thank you so much! You’re the best trainer going and have my full support!

I love The AR Program. I am proof it works. I did Amanda’s 14 Day Plan for 30 days straight and lost 40 pounds. SInce then I’ve lost another 30, and hope to lose 20 more. Hang in there guys, it really does work and anyone can do it. Thanks Amanda.




My name is Melissa MacDonald I’m 26 and this happens to be my first e-mail I have ever sent to anyone remotely classified as a “celebrity”. I have a hyper mobility condition (the step above double jointedness) that actually saved my life when I was 19.
I was a competitive Dressage rider (horses) and had an accident where I went head first off my horse and he partially fell on top of me. If I hadn’t been as flexible I would of broken my next and back in the best case. After years of being unable to work out I was finally given a clean bill of health. 7 years and nearly 70lbs heavier I’m struggling but committed to getting my fitness back. After hearing your story on a podcast my attitude shifted…. Really I can’t explain the resonance I felt with your mission and commitment. I have been watching your fitness channel for just over a month without knowing your background and knew there was something different about you and now I am even more of a fan.
Really I’m not sure why I’m writing this e-mail, I guess more than anything I wanted you to know that you have changed my life and my attitude.

Thank you again.

Hey Amanda, I just wanted to give you an update on my weight-loss. I’ve lost 21 pounds since I started doing your workouts. I’m not trying to loose weight as fast as I can, I’m trying to change my habits and my life for good, so I’m being easy on myself and I have to say, I love it so much, I don’t even mind getting up and working out. So far I’ve already “converted” five people who are also starting with your 14 Day Plan! Just wanted you to know that what you do really makes a difference. ♥

Hi Amanda!! I know you are incredibly busy but I thought I would write to you to tell you that you are such a positive inspiration to me! I just had a baby 12 weeks ago and used your 14 Day Plan to get me back into shape. I was SOO worried about the post-baby weight but I’m actually looking BETTER than I EVER did pre-pregnancy, it’s a miracle, people are asking me what I’m doing and you’ve made me a preacher – Amanda Russell’s 14 Day Plan!

Boston, MA

AMAZING PROGRAM!! I’m a new subscriber… I love your workouts and have started doing them since I discovered you. I like that your exercises are simple and can be done in the comfort of one’s own home. AND your meals are so simple, easy and delicious! Thank you, this has changed my body and my life!

No gimmicks, no fancy equipment, no time hour + workouts, no pills, no starvation – I Promise!

When I asked myself, “How can I help thousands of fans achieve their fitness goals all at once?” I knew the answer wasn’t some super-secret only models and celebrities knew. I’d figured it out myself, from a lifetime of training as a runner at an Olympic level, to having to start from scratch after being derailed with an injury for 2 years and left unable to run. It’s hard-yet-SMART work, the right formula, and the drive to be the YOU that you want to be.
