Indoor Spin Cycling Playlist

Not sure if I shared it on the blog but at the end of April I became certified to be a Cycle Instructor! I’ve been taking classes for about two years straight and I am hooked! It’s one full hour of me pushing myself as hard as I can. Even if I slack on my other workouts I always bring it on cycling nights.  I got my certification through Reebok and my instructor was Debbie Bellenger. I know there are plenty of courses out there so pick the one that’s best for you (and your budget). Before I became certified, I started to keep a list of songs I wanted to use once I started to teach (because the music can really make a difference!). This part can be tricky because a song may have a great tempo for running but it may not translate to the bike. Also, you have to make sure you have a good mixture of slow, medium, and fast; as well as “rest” songs. Since I did some searching on the web to see what others were using I decided to share some of my playlists.
