Fitness junkies will testify that the right playlist can motivate you to work harder and distract you from the fatigue that threatens to undo your final set. That’s why we’re helping you upgrade your workout playlists with favorite picks from Philadelphia’s top fitness instructors.
MacHose’s barre classes will sculpt your arms, flatten your abs, lift your seat and firm your legs with small, non-impact movements. (Think Pilates, yoga, and ballet, all wrapped into one!) And if you’ve ever experienced a class, you know a playlist can make or break your success at the barre.
“Music provides a timing cue,” said MacHose. “The best workout songs have both a high BPM count and a rhythm to which you can coordinate movements.”
