It’s Monday, Shut-up & Spin

In Music by AleahS / September 9, 2013 / 0 Comments

It takes some serious beats to spin away the Monday Blues. This week, that beat is Martin Garrix “Animals”. This 17 year old from Amsterdam has hit a complete home run with this one, I’m calling the next Avicii here. Listen to the original beat and a mashup with Nirvana below. Enjoy!

Martin Garrix – Animals (Original)

Since the wonderful invention of the internet, DJs from all over the world have the ability to get their music out to anyone with a computer and a set of headphones. I get asked everyday where I get my music from. I’m here today to give you one of my favorite websites for remixes, mashups, and those hidden music gems that only a professional can create: The Hype Machine. http://hypem.com/

There are many options on the main page to find different music depending on what you’re interested in. In the top left sidebar: you can view the latest music or popular music. My recommendation to start is to select: Popular; Now; then scroll down to see the most popular songs and remixes on blogs today. Listen to the song by pressing play next to the title on the right. You can also go directly to the song on the blog by selecting “Read Post”. If you get lucky, this is where you can download the song as well. Voilà! Awesome music you can play and take with you to the gym.

Keep sweating!

One of the greatest artists of our time, Jay Z, provides some of the best music to sweat to. Even the most “not hip-hop” people turn up their resistance a little more when he comes on. Whether running, cycling, or stair-climbing, its a crime to not have him on the mp3 player. I could list every Jay Z song out there, but I limited myself to the 18 that spin most often on my playlists. Here are the BEST JAY Z SONGS to workout to:

Run This Town (featuring Rihanna & Kanye West)

99 Problems

Izzo (H.O.V.A.)

U Don’t Know

Numb / Encore (with Linkin Park)

Dirt Off Your Shoulder

Beware (featuring Panjabi MC)

Can I Get A…

Otis (with Kanye West)

Public Service Announcement

Ni**as in Paris (with Kanye West)

No Church in the Wild (with Kanye West)

Brooklyn Go Hard

Clique (with Kanye West & Big Sean)

Originator 99

Sunshine

Tom Ford

Holy Grail (with Justin Timberlake)

 

Keep Sweating –

The Sunday Funday

In Music by AleahS / August 25, 2013 / 0 Comments

There is something magical about Sunday rides at Flywheel. Undeniably, my Sunday class in NYC or Miami always becomes my favorite ride. Maybe its the fact that the people who actually made it to your class -hungover or not- are ready for anything. Only serious cardio-enthusiasts wake themselves up for a killer workout on Sunday, and I try to provide them with an extra special playlist. Here is one from last Sunday’s in Miami Beach.

Who dat Children (Mashup) – Flo Rider

Mr. Brightside – The Killers

Power Trip (Bootleg Remix) – J. Cole

Hold On, We’re Going Home – Drake

Tom Ford – Jay Z

Till the World Ends – Britney Spears

In the End – Linkin Park

Summertime Sadness (Cedric Gervais Remix) – Lana Del Ray

Into You  – Fabulous

Holy Grail (Remix) – Jay Z & Justin Timberlake

The Pretender – Foo Fighters

Skinny Love – Bon Iver

Enjoy your Sunday!!

Mission Statement

In Uncategorized by AleahS / August 16, 2013 / 0 Comments

Hello World!! Here we go.

One of my dear friends from NYC always called blogging the “narcissistic ramblings of the self-absorbed”. Well… let’s hope that’s not true for this one!

As you probably know if you’re reading this, I am a master instructor for indoor cycling at Flywheel Sports. My class is all about music, and I am asked constantly where I post my playlists. Well, my friends, welcome to playlist central! I also only have a few minutes before class to set people up and explain to them the 1000 things they should be doing while riding. Stay tuned for that information as well.

I will be blogging about: music, playlists, indoor cycling, form, exercise, and anything in the realm of overall fitness warrior-ism. Any requests for blog posts, please write me an email or visit the contact page. You can also follow the blog by email to make sure you never miss a playlist!

Live & Love,

Aleah
