One thing that I absolutely LOVE about barre class (beyond all the awesome benefits), is getting to listen to an hour of music that’s fun (especially the music in the barre section)! I tend to shazam music as I’m listening to the radio, and then add them to a note I have on my phone. When I sit down to actually make a playlist, I have to figure out not only what songs are appropriate for the time segment, but I also need to make sure that the beat is appropriate. The entire process does take some time, but it’s quite a bit of fun. I’ve had some fantastic responses to this current playlist, so I thought I’d share it with you!

And here it is broken down by section:

Warm Up

  • Say Something

Pilates Section

  • Just Give Me A Reason
  • Songbird
  • Let It Be
  • Demons (starting to pick back up the pace)

Planks Section

  • Radioactive

Cardio Section

  • My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark
  • Cruise (just through the first minute)

Barre Section

  • Cruise (after the first minute of the song)
  • Let Her Go
  • On Top Of The World
  • Yeah That’s My Kind Of Night
  • Wrecking Ball
  • Dark Horse
  • Stompa: Serena Ryder (I do flat back kicks to this song- it has a fantastic beat)

Cool Down

  • Coming Home (Part 2)
  • Gratitude

This playlist has a lot of energy though, which is perfect for 6 am class! I find myself thinking of the songs throughout the day, and I feel like it gives me energy throughout the work day, despite my 4:50 wake up call!
