EDM Cycle Playlist

I mentioned on Friday that over the past few months I have been really into EDM (electronic dance music). It has slowly been added to my playlists for cycle as well as running. When I found out that the new gym I teach at enjoyed EDM, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to teach a full EDM cycle class. The playlist went over very well not only at the new gym but my current gym as well. EDM is all about heavy beats which is extremely helpful as an instructor to give a beat for students to try and keep. It is also very motivating with it’s fast pace which always motivates when I am running. Needless to say these songs have been on repeat this past week and I look forward to working on incorporating EDM into more of my classes. Looking for a playlist to use for your own cycling? Check out the playlist below.
