1. HIIT It by Mark Ribeiro, Trainer at The Fhitting Room: 鈥淭hese songs get me going during my workouts and especially when I鈥檓 teaching class. Since what we do is high intensity at The Fhitting Room, it鈥檚 great to have a beat that will set a fast pace, catchy lyrics to somewhat distract you from the tough workout, and just some good music to have fun to.鈥 (Photo via Heidi B Photo)


2. Motivational Mashups to Get You Movin鈥 by Alex Puette, Spin Instructor at Cyc Fitness: 鈥淢ashups (two or more songs combined into one) are the best way to add some zing to your workout jams! My favorites are the ones that merge songs you would least expect to work (for example, Rihanna鈥檚 鈥榃e Found Love鈥 with the Village People鈥檚 鈥榊MCA鈥), and I love to play them in class, because they always surprise riders and make them smile and laugh. When you鈥檙e in a good mood and really listening to a song, I notice that riders tend to push themselves harder and are more focused. On top of all that, they are so freaking creative, and I love supporting the amazing DJs that put them together. Try one (or all) of these mashups in your workout playlist, and prepare to be pumped!鈥 (Photo via Alex Puette)


3. Unstoppable Flow by Katie Haggerty, National Studio Programming Manager at Life Time Fitness: 鈥淭hese songs were all chosen to provide a message. 鈥楤urgs鈥 sets the stage with a mindfulness that this life is so extraordinary, and if we overcomplicate it, it just gets messy, and we miss out. 鈥極h Lord鈥 provides a message of temptations with the understanding we are always connected to something deeper than ourselves. Every song from 鈥楻ise鈥 to 鈥楴atural Blues鈥 is how we journey through this life with freedom of choice, and then 鈥楽tand by Me鈥 is all about how when we know our purpose we can stand together in love, kindness, and respect to make this world beautiful.鈥 (Photo via Katie Haggerty)
