Music is a very important part of a group fitness class. Music motivates your participants and can help you build your following depending on where you’re instructing. But how do you select your music? Do the contents of each song really matter? In this episode, Kristi Taylor discusses all that goes into building a playlist, how to use a playlist depending on the gym’s demographics, and how to find music that’s trending. Kristi is a fitness professional that instructs online and in-person in the greater Phoenix area and over the last few years developed her own instructor training.
One of the most useful aspects of this episode is how Kristi breaks down gym demographics and how that can influence your playlist. Your gym’s demographics play an important role when it comes to your daily participants and your playlist can make an impact if these participants continue to come back. But what if you don’t know what’s trending or what your demographic likes to listen to? In this episode, Kristi shares how you can use Tik Tok to find what’s trending for younger generations. Taking these extra steps during your preparation shows how you can be an asset to a gym and why you’re worth more than your hourly wage at the gym
How do you make your playlists? Have you found any music categories that don’t fit well in the group fitness setting?
