Anyone come across this. Why when taking part in a class do they have to have the music on so loud you can't hear yourself think never mind the instructor. Why?
Well I like it. Couldn't imagine spin/rpm/pump/combat without loud music. Can still ear the instructor... That's what mikes are there for. If you don't like their music you can always vote with your feet or take an MP3.
What really annoys me about gyms is music too loud to hear my MP3 player over. Music in classes is fine: they are designed around it (but good soundproofing is all too rare). There's evidence to suggest that people are most motivated by music they like, which isn't necessarily what others might consider motivating (I effing hate 'Simply the Best'), so policy should be pro-Mp3. Mind you, if music enhances your enjoyment of the gym, you'll be there longer and then people will cancel their memberships cos it's too busy.
Having worked in a gym, all I can say is spare a thought for the instructors. 8 hours a day, streamed music not of your choosing, repeating several times a day, changed once every 3 months. You could escape it in the staffroom, but that was next to the studio, and used to shake from the music from the classes. The relief of getting into my car to drive home with the archers/Radio 3/glorious silence was indescribable.
Raich, next you will be telling us your one of Terry's TOG's
Happy - I had to google terry's TOGs to find out what it was, so I think there's hope yet.
M People "What have you done today"
At every f*cking race!! *groan*
It's so RFL... pleeeease...
Nothing like a bit of pumping trance or happy hardcore to get you going. IMHO anyway.
Bit cheezy but remixes of ....
Cutting Crew's - "I Just Died In Your Arms" & Foreigner's "Cold as Ice" or any Scooter. Also Ultrasonic, very old skool but still rocks.
On a trance tip, most Warp Bros, GMS vs. Cyrus The Virus, 666 - the devil, d-devils - 6th gate and that sort of thing still rule.
Listen, to the Phatt Bass !!!
Major irritants: Simply the best, We are the champions, M People search for a hero, eye of the tiger. They are all too slow! The gym soundtrack had some real dirgey stuff on it - Back to Black seemed an odd choice.
Trancey dancey and bloc party for me.
Kadoc's 'The Night Train' (Warp Brothers 2004 Remix) is a track we use in spin/rpm but its fab to run to as well.
