Tribe Tunes: January 6

Tunes Tuesday2The start of a new year means the gym is filled with folks looking to turn over a new leaf, get active, and live a healthy lifestyle.The energy is contagious and the potential is infinite. It really is one of my favourite fitness times of the year. So many goals just waiting to be crushed!

For today’s Tribe Tunes Tuesday, here are three of my favourite songs to get a cardio sweat on to right now!

Afrojack and Steve Aoki featuring Miss Palmer – No Beef

I love this track for the fast cardio beat. It’s perfect for a HIIT (20 seconds of high cardio followed by 10 second recover x8). Start your HIIT at 1:21 when the beat has a huge drop – you’ll know when it happens.

Iggy Azalea Ft. Charli XCX- Fancy (WoodysProduce Remix)

A nice slow beat for strength training. Way to often we (and I mean I) go way to fast through my sets, so something with a slow and strong count is perfect for curling those biceps or as Iggy says, dropping it low (into a squat 😉 ).

Tove Lo – Habits (Stay High) – Hippie Sabotage Remix

Stretch it out! This is always an area of need for my personal workouts. I get in and out and never take the time to stretch. I’m loving this song to wrap up my workout, so hope it will inspire you to slow down too!

Tribe Tunes: December 30

IMG_3135With our outdoor cyclists and triathletes moved indoors on trainers and stationary bikes, today’s Tribe Tunes Tuesday playlist is shared by We Fit Together #FitCouple bloggers and friends of Tribe Fitness, Jenna Pettinato and Nick Mizera. Here are three tunes they suggest to keep you motivated while sweating indoors or to get you inspired to take your workouts outside this winter.

With the weather getting colder, we’ve moved our cycling workouts indoors on the trainer and the lack of scenery means we need some music to keep us entertained! These 3 songs are a few of our favourites. They’re especially great for speed work and intervals as they all have a fast beat and and build momentum to keep you going when your legs are on fire! Lose yourself in these songs and before you know it, you’ll be sweating and singing along.

Muse – Survival:

St. Vincent – Digital Witness:

Death from Above 1979 – Romantic Rights:
