It's a lot simpler than that. I do cardio-vascular exercise most days during the week and I've found that if I can listen to music with a beat which exactly matches the pace at which I'm working, I can get more done.
Unfortunately, if I choose something which is almost but not exactly the right tempo, it really puts me off my stride
So, if I can measure the tempo of the one or two tracks which suit me perfectly at the moment, I can choose some other tracks which I like and which are close to the right tempo and then tweak them in terms of tempo to suit, hopefully without the attendant harmonic distortion being too obvious.
It might sound odd, but if I am listening to music at precisely the right tempo, I can work harder and for longer than I otherwise might.
