Music for Swiss teenagers - what is suitable for indoor cycling classes?

I give indoor cycling classes at our local gym.
I use House Music, Techno, even Madonna and Robbie Williams.. whoever takes my fancy and has the energy. I have even used Bob the Builders version of Mumbo number 5

Now I am to take a class for 18 year old football playing boys(!)
Thats ok, I've "done" them before but just used a class I had organised for my usual bunch (they're a teeny bit older)
I want to write a few classes for them, with stuff that they will like.
I dont want to hit them with Brittany or Top Gun, and be labelled as that old diddy on the bike, who has NO idea.. (i am over 30, so geriatric in their eyes)


So what are your 18 year old kids (or you kids, if you are actually out there) listening to? (Mr Rangi says House is out.. how would he know??!)
He says they are into hip hop.

Your valued opinion is required here...

Re: Music for Swiss teenagers - what is suitable for indoor cycling classes?

I've moved this to Sports as it is really not off-topic at all. 'Football/Sports' is there for the couch potatoes who only watch the game.

I've altered the title too as it should be clearer what you are looking for.
Hope you don't mind. Otherwise, to give bad rep click at top right-hand corner, to give a groan, click bottom right.

Re: Swiss teenage music - what are they listening to?!

If they're into hip-hop then B.O.B has been doing the rounds. Hilltop Hoods are making a few waves and Shwayze are pretty good as well. Dangermouse and Abdominal are pretty good as well, IMO.

Other music is more of an eighties vibe and Martin Solveig, Club Feet, Alpha Beat, Chairlift and Two Door Cinema are making some good tunes.

If you want more commerical stuff then Flo Rida, Robyn, Cee-Lo Green and Mark Ronson are the current favourites.

Is this any help?

According to Mr. L, you can buy CD's with the music 'labelled' as a specific 'beat speed'. And for cycling the guys say 90 to the minute is good.

For my session, Brahms' Lullaby does nicely.

Re: Music for Swiss teenagers - what is suitable for indoor cycling classes?

Remember this? ... keep it Swiss.



There is also a 40 vid. compilation, albeit a bit retro, but beat could be about right (only looked at some of the titles - not played it thru') - of which the following gives a selection (15)

"August Burns Red" should keep them at very high speed

Yes.
There are even rules to go by (for those who want to get into the science of this)
80-120 beats when you are seated (or said to be in the flat)
60-80 in the hills , and a few others.

You can go on courses here.

Thats also a good one. An added advantage is that i already know the words to it off by heart

Re: Music for Swiss teenagers - what is suitable for indoor cycling classes?

...and if you ever teach 'Aqua Gym' standing at the pool-side, don't forget that the resistance of the water greatly slows down the movements of those in the water!
I once watched a chap, who should have known better, leading such a group using a 'normal' tempo beat. Pathetic.

Re: Music for Swiss teenagers - what is suitable for indoor cycling classes?

Not sure about swiss boys - but in Scotland indie music is popular. 'Last night' by the strokes would be great - high energy. Also 'The killers'. A bit 'old school' but I was on the elliptical and REM - End of the world as we know it' came on and it really made me pick up the pace.

Re: Music for Swiss teenagers - what is suitable for indoor cycling classes?

Do have the facility for DVD/Video playback?

To expand on my above post, if you can provide the correct beat for exercise, and offer visuals to detract from the exercise, I would think something like the following crash type videos, with a music soundtrack might captivate their interest (I'm sure there are loads of non-horrific available - I think Jeremy Clarkson has even put his name to some).

Re: Music for Swiss teenagers - what is suitable for indoor cycling classes?

Yay, nice to see Peaches and Yello here, (actually, Yello wouldn't be so bad for spinning, some tracks are faster enough). Hiphop is way too slow. Some faster rock tracks I can see fly (as rock is what my students listen to), but usually there is a special muzzak done for this, have a look online. Spinning tunes
