May I go to the gym during the year of availus?

Question:

May I go to the gym to exercise during the year of availus for my mother? There is music there, but I’m not going for the music. Thank you.

Answer:

Since you are going there for the exercise, although there is music there, you do not have to abstain from going or leave because of the music. You should try however not to intentionally enjoy the music.
