Group Exercise Classes – from a former instructor

The article attached thinks  “indoor cycling could help better manage migraines”.  I agree exercising can help chronic pain but having loud music is really difficult when you have a migraine.  I was a fitness instructor for 14 years and had to reduce the number and type of classes I was teaching because I always had so much pain in my head.  I loved the indoor cycling but was constantly calling for a sub to teach my classes.  Have any of you tried Zumba?  I don’t know why but it is the class with the loudest music.  I love group classes but even with no pain in my head, I’m still sensitive to loud pounding music.  Some gyms even have disco balls or strobe lights in cycling rooms.  Why?  I wonder if the Swedish study in this article had the music lower for the patients.  Probably.
