10 Spinning Songs that You Can’t Stop Pedaling To

Music plays a crucial role in any spinning class. It motivates you, helps you get through challenging rides, and energizes and entertains you so that you come back for more. Music with irresistible high-groove qualities excites your brain and just makes you want to move. The right music will help focus your mind, empower you to finish that sprint or climb that hill and give you a sense of peace and accomplishment. Everyone is different, and we all like different music, so a variety of genres and tempos is best. Music is no substitute for a great instructor, but it’s an essential tool that you can use to help you get fit. Here are ten awesome songs you’ll love pedaling your way through!

1. “Uma Thurman” by Fallout Boy

From the “Munsters” sample to Patrick Stump’s soaring vocals, “Uma Thurman” is one of Fallout Boy’s most ferocious offerings. It’s fun, upbeat, and catchy – in other words, just perfect for motivating you through a tough section of your workout.

2. “Hideaway” by Kiesza

“Hideaway” makes an unexpectedly great addition to your workout, partly because of the moments where the music kicks out; oddly, this seems to give riders more motivation and are the perfect moments to push even harder. This is an ideal song for climbs.

3. “What’s Up” by 4 Non Blondes

Spinning class participants who love ‘90s music will love it when this number if part of the playlist. "What's Up" is super easy to get lost in and these almost five minutes will fly by quickly. You can also get creative with your ride while this song's playing and the slower ending makes it perfect for transitioning to cool down. 

4. “Ghost” by Ella Henderson

"Ghost" is unusual in that it is a beautiful song while also being energetic and motivating. It's a newer song, but people of all ages will enjoy it. If you aren't familiar with it, give it a try next time you need something different to add to your routine.

5. “In the Air Tonight” by Phil Collins

Here's an oldie but goodie you can mix in with newer music (or with your other older music – whatever works for you!). "In the Air Tonight" is excellent for climbs. It starts off slow, but it picks up, and you’ll find yourself digging deep to finish strong.

6. “Shut Up and Dance” by Walk the Moon

Did you know that smiling during exercise can ease pain and fatigue? The euphoric “Shut Up and Dance” will certainly get the job done! You’ll be pedaling – and singing – along with ease. This song is just too happy and catchy not to love!

7. “Love Myself” by Hailee Steinfeld

You most likely have a list of reasons for working out, but they probably all center on one main goal: to make YOU better! "Love Myself" puts your priorities in focus and serves up an addictive tribal beat.

8. “Bring Me to Life” by Evanescence

Slow and intense, “Bring Me to Life” isn’t for everyone, but it’s worth a listen – if it’s your cup of tea, it will quickly become an all-time favorite. Its intensity lends it beautifully to a smashing workout while the haunting vocals will keep your ears and mind happy even while your muscles are burning.

9. “Juke Box Hero” by Foreigner

This classic rock hit is a great cross-generational favorite that ebbs and flows throughout its four-and-a-half minute duration. Its sheer energy makes it perfect partners with your indoor bike.

10. “I Gotta Feeling” by The Black-Eyed Peas

This song just never seems to get old. Fun and sassy, its energy and excitement will power you through the most challenging climbs and get you excited about finishing your workout strong and seeing the results you've worked so hard to attain.

Try any of these songs for a fun workout, and have fun finding your own spinning favorites as well. If your heart's not in the music, your workout won't be nearly as much fun as it could be. It’s worth it to find music you love working out to. Music is a healthy distraction from the difficulty of your workout, it encourages you to work harder, and it helps you keep pace. In addition, music can elevate your mood, making you feel better regardless of what happened before you came to class. Try the above songs or any others you love and watch your fitness level and enjoyment of exercise improve.
