I was greeted by another Spotify update this morning and see they’ve added a new way to accidentally screw up your class 🙁 Forgive me if you have already experienced this Spotify update. I might be a few days late reporting the change – I’ve been using the new Schwinn Class Tamer app and wanted to use a past Spotify playlist today. That big Shuffle Play button sits there at

This week’s track will bring your class up a slow, steep hill as the rpm remains the same, but the gear becomes more intense with each minute. Bishop Briggs‘ song, River is one that will get stuck in your head long after this hill is over and you’ll want to use it again and again. It would also make a great standing climb.

This is a video of my all time favorite Tour de France Stage and it includes my all time favorite indoor cycling song, O’Fortuna. Originally posted 2015-11-24 22:46:02.
This new release from Harry Styles‘ self named album makes a great faster hill at around 74 rpm. It’s a totally different sound than you’re used to hearing from the One Direction star, and it will definitely rock your next class. Here is Kiwi: Kiwi by Harry Styles iTunes link While you’re checking out the newest releases, don’t overlook this one by Robin Schulz and James Blunt called OK. As
ICI/PRO member Dr. Marc Schlosberg is one of those Early Adopters you’ve no doubt heard discussed in the media. This group is quick to experiment with and embrace new technology. Marc was one of the first Instructors to use Spotify in his classes and he joined me on the podcast to discuss this (at the time) exciting new option for delivering music to our classes. Marc sent me this email yesterday,
Every instructor needs to have songs like this week’s favorite track in their library. Keep this one in your flat road folder and take it out when you are looking for a longer flat road to ride on. Though they’ve been around for quite a while, I’ve just recently found Nahko and Medicine for The People and their song Black as Night from their 2013 album Dark as Night. I
Here are two new songs that will have your riders sprinting like they mean it. Sprinting songs are sometimes the hardest to find, so you will definitely want to tuck these away and keep them to use time after time. If you’re looking for a shorter original or a faster, longer remix, Scooter has you covered with their new release Bora! Bora! Bora! Try the original or the extended version. Bora!
Your class will love these two new releases for climbing. The first is a seated, heavy climb and the second is more of a fun standing climb. Try them both out and treat your riders to some great new music! Dig Down is Muse’s newest release. Tune into the lyrics here. I love what lead vocalist Matthew Bellamy had to say about them: “When I was writing this song, I
Click the title for full post: Another question about Spotify: I was off to teach a class on Friday and always listen to my playlist on the drive over and all the songs were skipping. I tried rebooting my iPhone and still no luck. Luckily I had my iTunes playlist on my phone and did another profile for class. The problem is still there and the Spotify site is no
Not much of anything. Really. There’s no changes that I can see that would be of any value to you, as a Fitness Instructor. The preferences section is exactly the same – OK, not exactly; they’ve removed the option for gap-less playback, but kept the cross-fade. Nothing else to see here. Move along… Originally posted 2012-12-01 13:12:52.
Check out the new remixes of Cake by Flo-Rida and 99 Percent if you’re looking for a faster-than-the-original version of the feel-good track that will rock your next class. The original version is fun, but pretty slow. Luckily, these new remixes have been released recently and both of them come with a beat that won’t quit.
