Long time no spin playlist? Well I’m back on track and this week I decided that since Valentines day has been and gone I figured that was pointless posting now so onto another theme, the winter olympics! I wanted something that would appeal to all ages, and offer something for any playlist afterwards. This playlist runs about an hour, if your classes are 45 mins feel free to play with things a little 🙂 Personally I’d take out the slower climbs: Gold and Epic… but that’s cos my class likes the faster dancier tunes. Scroll down for an iTunes link to the complete playlist (aside from tracks 2-3 which weren’t available!)
Push Push – Falco: For some reason iTunes doesn’t have this and it’s a shame. There is this one on iTunes but it’s not the version I have 🙁 There are some definite lack of obscure songs on iTunes. For this I just did pushes in each position increasing the resistance a little, keep the tempo but increase the tension. The karaoke version is available on Amazon but not the falco version! Hard to get European music on US websites huh!
Kalinka – Various: Ok I put various as there are so many remixes out there. The one I have is off BodyCombat 46 but there is a great version available on itunes including this one for cycle and this one for cardio boxing. It’s just a fun something that’s Russian based to honor Sochi as they host the winter Olympics. Just a push in out of the saddle, easy tempo. Tons of Amazon remixes available
Are you ready for this – 2 unlimited. The mix I have is by Friday night posse: Take the tension down a little and after 35 seconds head into 20s sprints. Couldn’t find this on iTunes or Amazon 🙁
Get Lucky – Daft Punk: I see how the class is doing to decide what to do here. Maybe a last climb or jumps 😉 I like jumps and the tempo is good for it! Either way add a little tension 30-50% and go. Amazon/iTunes
As you’ll see this is a big big of generation, genre and speeds. When creating a theme playlists you should try to make it as varied as possible. I have music in here that’s pop, classic rock, remixes, rap (ish), and dance. The music spans the generations from 1980’s to 2013! I looked to see if there was an Abba dance remix of winner takes it all so I could include the 1970’s too 😉 Alas the one I found I really didn’t like, ah well.
Hope you at least find one song useful for your spinning classes, and let me know your thoughts in the comments! Happy spinning!
