Firstly apologies for not getting the new bodypump and cxworx playlists up on the blog yet. I’m currently waiting on iTunes to approve my application for a collections/iMix account. Hopefully once that goes through I will have access again to creating playlists for you to purchase in iTunes. Until then I thought I’d share that Les Mills are finally getting with it and realizing that class members want the music. Last year they released four albums via iTunes for all the Les Mills music lovers!
First up is LOADED Vol 1 Heavy hits to lift to! Opening with a driving cover of Stevie Wonder’s ‘Higher Ground”, LOADED will have you pushing the envelope with a heavy mix of dubstep, rock and electronic dance hits. You’ll hear unique covers of Six60, My Chemical Romance, Jason Derulo, Green Day and Skrillex. This album is equally at home on the bench press as it is accompanying a tough morning run or high intensity interval training session. Let LOADED be the power behind your next workout.

Some of my favorite remixes from Les Mills are the ones they cover and totally revamp. I love that they let you either purchase the whole album or individual songs. This makes it very affordable and if you don’t like a few songs off the album skip them and buy the rest 😉
Next up is RUN Vol1 sounds to pound the streets. I have to say that I LOVE listening to Les Mills music when I’m running. BodyCombat Muay Thai tracks make me run so much faster! Go on a journey with Les Mills RUN, you’ll forget the miles and get lost amongst the electrifying drum n bass, hi-energy dance and rock. Tracks have been specially picked to provide inspirational chords and beats per minute that will match most running cadences. You’ll hear Flo Rida, Pendulum, David Guetta plus the legendary Survivor classic that made Rocky Balboa go the extra mile. These are the sounds that’ll have you pounding the streets.
