Our Local Barre method is designed with music at the forefront. We believe that if movement aligns with a beat, the mind is more engaged and motivated to push harder, which translates to better results and WAY more fun. We interviewed one of our YQR Senior Leaders to talk all things music and playlist. Thanks Mia!
I always start with new music that comes out each month, and go from there. I try to pick catchy songs that people already know the general beat, that way it is easier for locals to know when transitions will be happening.
Energetic, Fun, Fast
My vibe is mostly upbeat and exciting. I want people to notice the music and find motivation through it in their own way. Do you ever switch it up? Rarely, although my playlist is never to one genre. There is usually the typical top 40, mixed with dance, and every few songs I will through in some hip hop or rap.
My plie track is always the song I love most on my playlist. We all know 3 minutes can feel like 10 during this time, so I like to pick something most people are familiar with, so they can have fun with it!
Oh man, this is almost embarrassing but Justin Bieber’s, Will Prime Remix, of Love Yourself is one I can never ever get sick of.
I have an explicit theme coming up which I have already been talking about for months. It’s going to be fucking great.
Whenever I make a new playlist, I listen to it on repeat in my car for a few weeks prior. If I find that I can envision exercises while driving, it works. If I go off in a day dream or focus on other thoughts while a song is on, I take it off my playlist.
Sorry but you will not find any old rock on my playlist. I can’t fake the idea of ACDC getting me in the mood to pulse.
There are tons of great inspiration right on Spotify! I like to follow gurus such as Stacey Griffith from SoulCycle or Andrea Rogers from Xtend Barre for some inspo when I need it.
