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. We've heard from SYNCSTUDIO, SoulCycle, and Body & Pole, and today, it's Flywheel Sports' Jaimie Bailey, who teaches at at the new Tribeca studio and other locations in the city.
Jaimie's playlist is heavy on remixes, so you'll hear mashups that pair Jay Z against Led Zepplin and Kanye West with Bob Marley. Since most of them aren't available on Spotify, we've put them in numbered list below, linking to either YouTube or Soundcloud.
