Spring Break Spinning Playlist
Meet Emily: An avid runner and a certified Spinning instructor who teaches weekly classes at her campus gym over the last three years. She blogs about health, fitness and college life at My Healthy-ish Life and today on College Living, she's sharing a spring-break themed workout playlist.
One of my favorite things about being a spin instructor is creating playlists for my classes. When I'm taking a Spin class, the music can make or break it for me -- I want upbeat and powerful songs! It's fun to create themed rides to coincide with holidays or events so what better than to make a Spring Break ride? Fun, party songs paired with a challenging workout is just what we all need to get mentally and physically ready for a much needed school vacation.
