Training with an instructor at a group fitness class is like working out with a super fit friend who, hopefully, has great taste in music. Trying to replicate those playlists at-home is another story, which is why we'll be posting one a day from some of the city's best studios. Yesterday's was courtesy of SYNCSTUDIO in Williamsburg; today's is from SoulCycle.
SoulCycle instructor Janet Fitzgerald gets extra points for including a new Beyoncé song as her opening track, because if this doesn't inspire you, nothing will. She follows it up with some Britney, Lady Gaga, and an Eminem finale. Want more songs from the instructors? Follow SoulCycle on Spotify.
