This summer is flying by. Before we know it, we’ll be trading in our long, hot days for school work, falling leaves and crisp, cool mornings. The changing of the seasons is a great time to add some new tunes to mix up your Group X playlist. A few months ago, I shared a few workout songs to try around the Memorial Day holiday. Now, here are ten workout songs that fit an end of summer theme to play in an upcoming group fitness class.
These end-of-summer workout songs includes songs about school and songs about the upcoming Fall season, because those are the two major things we get to look forward to in the near future.
School is Back in Session Songs
“Rock and Roll High School,” The Ramones — fast-paced, upbeat song that’s good for a sprint.
“ABC,” The Jackson 5 — a family fun song with a slower speed but tons of energy.
“Another Brick in the Wall,” Pink Floyd — a steady moderately-paced song that will give your playlist some edge.
“Don’t Stand So Close to Me,” The Police — a nice buildup for a climb or slower song.
“Teacher,” Nick Jonas — fun, upbeat pop song with a moderate beat that’s good for strength training.
Fall-ing in Love with These Workout Songs
“September,” Earth, Wind & Fire — I don’t know a single person that doesn’t love this song. A must for any fall-themed playlist.
“Falling for You,” Student Rick — A fast rock song with a bit of punk that will have you itching for an interval.
“DJ Got Us Fallin’ in Love,” Usher feat. Pitbull — a high-energy pop, Top 40’s song that will fit in a bunch of different playlists.
“Free Fallin’,” Tom Petty — A classic slow jam that will have everyone bobbing their heads during cool down.
“Fall For You,” Secondhand Serenade — A great, slow love song that’s a perfect cool down song.
