To stay motivated through your workout, it’s always good to have some buddies around. But music, can be your best friend. It sets a rhythm, and it can set the right mood.
But what’s the kind of music that gets you pumped? Check out our favourite tracks and let us know which genre is for you. You may just hear it in your next spin session.
There’s nothing like Disco music to instantly put a smile on your face, and get you pumped up. While spinning, it can help pep you up, especially for those uphill climbs. The rhythm and bass gets you grooving, and the soulful melodies can keep your spirits high.
When in doubt, always turn to a song you know and love. Pop music is easy to follow, and helps you anticipate choruses and bridges to figure which points to shift gears in your workout. Turn the intensity up as you reach your favourite part to stay motivated.
- Hip Hop
Turn on beast mode by turning up a Hip Hop track. The hard Hip Hop bass is great to follow when you’ve turned the resistance levels up on your bike. The powerful downbeats and gritty urban flavour can keep you feeling pretty bada$$..
We recommend Rock for a steady flat road sprint. The heavy beats, the guitars, the vocals and lyrics make Rock a very layered genre with several sounds to follow and distract yourself with. Channel your inner rockstar with some hardcore rock music.
If you’re really looking to power down on your reps or go the distance, look for electronic music that’ll help you stay with a steady cadence for longer. Great for sprints and composed to include calmer sections you can use to recover, it keeps you going.
New sounds are the ultimate distraction when you’re feeling the burn, and Afro music is a genre we love for its feel-good and happy vibe. Use the variations in the music to vary your workout – use the verses for flat roads, and the energetic choruses for climbs or sprints.
Finally, if desi music is your jam, go all out and pick out your favourite Bollywood numbers. They pep you up through the most intense rides. After all, some of the best heroes and heroines aren’t superheroes but good old Bollywood heroes!
