On the rollers, pace all depends on what I want out of the workout. I like this because of changes in tempo.

I mean it isn't all that hard. Just listen to some stuff and make sure it's music that motivates you or you'll hate playing it. Pretty soon you'll be listening to the radio or TV and all of a sudden notice that a particular song would be great for hills, or whatever.

Hell Yeah!!
I just want someone elses music preferences. If I play only the stuff that I like to hear then I only motivate myself and not my class.

Name of song: Paul Van Dyk - Live at Cream @ Amnesia Ibiza (08-16-02), 170MB, 2 hours, Genre: Trance.

Excellent set to take you to "Heart Attack Land" on your spin bike / trainer. I would have to agree to the following:

"A truly remarkable set recorded from Amnesia in Ibiza and then broadcast on Australian radio. There are NO fillers in this one, a set just bursting with energy and one you'll likely listen to a few times in succession just because it's *THAT* good."

I agree... trance music provides awesome motivationPODIUMBOUNDdotCA

I've just started using trance stuff in my class and when the music really picks up the beat whether they are doing a sprint or a hill climb just motivates them to move their legs faster. Its really cool as an instructor to watch. Some people say the music is boring but thats where you as an instructor come in and try to motivate them to go faster by counting down and just entertaining them during the rest.

I suggest J. S. Bach, or other appropriate orchestral selections. Bach, in particular, actives both hemisphere's of the brain (or so the theory goes), which will optimize your cognitive functioning during a ride. Also, classical music can be very relaxing, and being relaxed on the bike is essential. I always listen to classical music before a ride, and it definitely helps!
