Although it’s not mentioned in my ‘About Me’ section, another one of my big interests is music. Not that I’m talented in playing any sort of instrument at all (well, not that I’ve discovered yet – my mum put me in piano lessons when I was younger but I think those lasted about 4 months before we canceled that and registered me for soccer instead!) Anyways, as a spin instructor I’m ALWAYS looking for new music to keep my spinners interested. Here I will post some spin songs, as well as some other songs that strike my fancy!

These are the tunes I’ve been listening to over and over and over again!

Somebody (I wonder who) has been terrible about updating this page! Below is a list of all of the songs I’ve featured in Fit Bit Friday posts up until now. They’re not exactly all workout tunes, but good ones nevertheless!

This playlist is a mix of faster-paced, energetic songs, as well as a few calm, chilled out ones. They’re good for getting through a long day at work! For a post containing most of these videos, click here.

One of my spinners recently commented that she LOVED one of the tracks I played this weekend. The song was Defying Gravity, from the musical Wicked. I’d originally heard the slow version on Glee last season, but recently discovered that there’s an AMAZING rock version too by Kerry Ellis, which is on the Wicked in Rock album. I’m not sure if there is an official video, but this is the song from YouTube!

Other songs I’m lovin:

  • Breakeven – The Script
  • Vanilla Twilight – Owl City
  • Show Me – Default
  • Celebrity Status – Marianas Trench
  • Bedrock – Young Money ft Lloyd

  • Connected – Katherine McPhee
  • Umbrella Beach – Owl City
  • Need You Now (the remix) – Lady Antebellum
  • Heartbreak Warfare – John Mayer
  • Half of my Heart – John Mayer & Taylor Swift
  • Chances – Five for Fighting (From the Blindside soundtrack – SUCH a good film!!)

And a few from spin:

  • Breathe Slow (Cahill Remix) – Alesha Dixon
  • Band of Gold (techno remix) – Kimberly Locke (out of all of these, this is my absolute FAVE right now)
  • Fire on the Mountain – Rob Thomas
  • Break Your Heart (Darren Styles Remix) – Taio Cruz

I’ve also been listening to the new Train album NON-STOP! I loved them when I was younger and their album Drops of Jupiter came out, so naturally, I was ECSTATIC when I found out they recently released a new one. Here are some of my faves so far:

Parachute by Train

Words by Train – Sorry, I can’t find an actual music video, just lyrics. But now you can learn the words!!

Hey Soul Sister by Train – YAY! You get an actual video for this one!!
