Music Policies & Procedures
Goal: The goal of music policies and procedures is for the prospective trainer to create a personalized music experience for each of their classes.
Create Your Sound
Make a playlist tailored to each stage of your client’s experiences. The playlist should guide your class through a series of segments, and sets the tone of the class from start to finish
Tailor the class to the time of day - morning classes should be extra upbeat to energize the class.
Evening classes should get people pumped for the workout after a long day of work
Playlists should entail a warm up, move into the arc of the class, and finish with either a heroic or soulful crescendo
Make sure you are happy with all of your songs, it distracts the class when you have to skip through songs in the middle of their workout
Find your Inspiration
Follow DJs on Facebook and Soundcloud for music inspiration
Listen to the trending songs on Spotify, Itunes, and other music lists
Look for anything with a good beat, that includes ‘oldies but goodies’ from the 70s, 80s, & 90s.
Mix and match the decades of music to create an explosive playlist
MOST importantly, choose songs that pump YOU up, the more excited you are during class the more motivating you will be
Ask for Feedback
Music can have such an impact on the workout experience, getting clients involved in the playlist creation is a great way to build community and loyalty
