ALL OUR WORKOUT MUSIC IS PPL & PRS LICENSE FREE MUSIC FOR FITNESS INSTRUCTORS (MORE INFORMATION)

Collection: Music For Fitness Instructors

When you first start out as a fitness instructor, chances are that music isn’t going to be at the forefront of your mind. After all, you have a whole host of other things to think about and prioritise.

You need to ensure that you are sufficiently qualified to lead your fitness classes - you need to understand how people’s bodies work, how to train people to stretch properly, what exercises will lead to your clients’ and attendees’ desired results and how to guide people through a class without anyone experiencing overexertion or injury.

You also need to create a structure to your classes that will ensure all exercises are completed in a set period of time. That’s before you even get onto finding a venue, scheduling classes, and marketing yourself to people in the local area!

But once you’ve got all of these boxes on your checklist ticked and you’re ready to get started, you really should start putting a little thought into the music that you use for your fitness classes.

What Role Will Music Play in your Classes?

We tend to underestimate the importance of music in fitness classes. Sure, you could conduct a class without any music, but you’ll find that it negatively impacts the class in general. Some of the benefits of listening to music while exercising include:

  • Relieving Boredom - this tends to apply more to individuals who are working out in the gym independently. Carrying out routine actions with no interaction with other people can quickly become dull. But putting a playlist on can give these individuals something to focus on and occupy their attention. Singing along to a favourite song is much more interesting than exercising in silence. This could be incorporated into instructors classes if you require participants to carry out a routine for an extended period of time where their minds might otherwise wander - perhaps if they are carrying out a plank for a while.
  • Breaking Awkward Silences - a lot of the time, the people attending your classes won’t really know each other and there isn’t a whole lot of time for conversation during exercise. Playing music can reduce awkward silences. Put on some group fitness music and people will immediately feel more comfortable.
  • Enhancing Physical Performance - we want our clients to get the most out of their workout. The more effort they put in, the more physical results they will benefit from and the happier they will be with your class. Studies have found that listening to fast paced music while exercising is likely to improve athletic performance. So it’s not all too surprising that music fitness really is taking off! Fast paced music tends to be particularly well suited as music for circuit training or spin classes.
  • Psychological Benefits - music can quickly become associated with feelings of pleasure or discontent, as it can boost serotonin levels. It can actually cause changes in behaviour and thought processes. So, putting on a feel good playlist can actually help your class attendees to enjoy their workout more!
  • Timing - having a piece of music that lasts a specific period of time will allow you to time your classes more easily. A ten minute track can see everyone through their warm up, while a half an hour track can last the duration of a circuit. As the track comes to a close, you’ll know to move onto the next part of the class you are holding without relying so heavily on timers or alarms.

Sourcing Your Music

Regardless of what music you decide to play, you’re going to have to source it from somewhere. Chances are that you don’t have a whole lot of time on your hands to start curating playlists yourself, or perhaps you just don’t have the knack for putting motivational or appropriate playlists together.

You also need to make sure that you only make use of PPL & PRS licence free fitness music so you do not need to pay any fees. The good news is that you can kill two birds with one stone by making use of WSHQ’s specially curated volumes of music. These are specially created with fitness instructors’ needs in mind.

No matter what you need, there’ll be something perfect to suit your requirements and preferences - whether that’s music for yoga, circuit training, or HIIT classes. You can also try out themed music for special occasions like our Halloween themed workout music!

The right music really can prove to be the cherry on the cake of your fitness classes. So it really is important that you focus on it.
