    Ergonomics focuses on human beings and their interaction with products, equipment, facilities, procedures, and environments that is used in work and everyday living. Ergonomics is applied in various areas of human life, such as manufacture industry, aerospace industry, transportation, education, health, etc. One of its applications is in sport industry, which is called sport ergonomic. Music as a part of working environment, is used to create a comfortable working environment, to reduce boredom and to disguise noise (Kroemer, et al, 2001). The previous reaserch showed that musical tempo significantly affected post treadmill exercise recovery time (Palit, 2015). The aim of this research is to understand the effect of musical genre during post treadmill exercise recovery time. The experiments are done at Ergonomics Laboratory of Petra Christian University. A three minutes treadmill exercise with a speed of 7 km/hour without any musical background is chosen as a physical activity. The recovery time is recorded during the recovering process while respondent listening to the music. Three levels of musical genre with slow tempo are chosen, they are new age, pop and rock. The desired response is faster heart rate recovery time. Randomize Complete Block Design is used as an experimental method. This study concludes that musical genre affects the post treadmill exercise recovery time, and new age genre has the fastest recovery time than pop or rock.
