5 Accounts to Follow on Spotify for Workout Music

5 Spotify Accounts to Follow for Workout MusicI’m sure my fellow group fitness instructors can relate—sometimes I question if I’m a trainer or a DJ. Creating playlists for classes can be extremely time consuming to the point where it takes longer than planning the actual workout. I found this especially true during my brief stint as an indoor cycling instructor, and it’s actually part of the reason why I ultimately don’t do it anymore. I’d get sucked into these SoundCloud/Spotify rabbit holes and next thing you know, I look at the clock and I’ve been searching for new songs for 5 hours. If teaching was my only job, I’d definitely put this kind of time into my playlists, but as the blog grows, I do have to divvy up my time accordingly. It’s kind of a bummer because DJ Pumps has a great ring to it, but that’s life my friends.

I save a ton of time looking for songs by following people on Spotify who regularly update their playlists with new music. Whether you are an instructor or just want to refresh your current workout playlist, I highly suggest searching for your favorite trainers and fitness studios on Spotify. You can follow the account or just the playlists of theirs that you like best.

Here are 5 of my current favorites…

5 Spotify Accounts to Follow for Workout Music

Ministry of Sound

I love this account because they have a handful of running playlists that they’re constantly updating.

Daily Deep

I follow their Daily Deep EDM and Daily Deep House playlists, both of which they frequently add to, for workout music. I love it when people do this, rather than creating multiple shorter playlists, because you can follow the playlist and get updates every time new songs are added.

B/SPOKE Beat Lab

To be a successful cycling studio, music has to just as good as the workout (in my opinion anyway), and B/SPOKE does not disappoint. And I really like the playlist organization of their Spotify—each instructor has a playlist with their favorite music, and B/SPOKE will also share music for outside of class (Memorial Day Weekend playlist, Morning Chillout, etc.). Just phenomenal taste in music all around.

@LAST RECORDS

@LAST has playlists with everything from relaxed tropical house playlists for relaxing by the pool to intense workout playlists. Great account to follow if you like EDM/house music.

SoulCycle

Again, cycling and music go hand-in-hand. I’m sure you’re not surprised to know the country’s titan of stationary bikes has a killer Spotify account.

And of course, you can always follow me on Spotify! 🙂

Ok, your turn: Who are your favorites to follow on Spotify for workout music?

  1. I love Spotify for searching and creating playlists. I don’t have to come up with my own for classes, but I used to. I totally felt like a DJ. Great channels!

  2. Hah, I definitely feel like a DJ when I’m making playlists for bootcamp classes or my own workouts. (Though, I think I was an EDM DJ in a former life – I LOVE techno music!) The studio where I teach uses all pre-made 32-count mixes formatted for group ex classes – do you ever use those? I’m loving the CDs that cardiomixes.com puts out, along with Power Music.

    It’s funny, I don’t listen to the radio, like ever (sad, I know), so half the time the first time I’m hearing a new song is on the latest workout mix. Then when I hear the real song, I’m like ohhhh, THAT’S how the original sounds. =P

  3. I had this topic in my blog post ideas for awhile now but haven’t written it. I also just got Spotify last month since I wanted to make my own playlists for classes. Thanks for the suggestions!!

  4. I don’t know know what I’d do without Spotify! I love the new running option that they have. They really do have some great workout playlists, but I usually scan them and add the songs that I like to my own playlist.

  5. ClassPass has a great Spotify channel too!

  6. Wow. That is new to me. I have never heard of Spotify. But one thing is certain. Workout with no muisc is :////

  7. Love this! I follow the SouCycle playlist and love it 🙂 THanks for all the recommendations!

  8. Thank you for this! I love listening to workout music at work to motivate me – – B/SPOKE’s playlists have been on repeat lately, but I love the 4 others you just added into the mix. 🙂

  9. Love these playlists! I also like the new running feature — it’s great for long runs and makes keeping your pace super easy!
