Theme Ride Thursday: Work Hard, Play Hard—A Labor Day Playlist

From our vault…

This year, celebrate the holiday with our Labor Day playlist, which now boasts over 90 songs to choose from. The songs in this playlist focus on “work”—fitting for a cycle class, dontcha think?! So whether you want to focus on bemoaning the thought of working “9 to 5,” are sick of the “Night Shift,” or if you just want to “Take This Job and Shove It,” then you’ve got plenty of songs to choose from. On the flip side, you could always focus on the positive, especially if you’re one of the lucky ones who can “Work from Home.”

Please note: Some of the songs included in this playlist contain explicit lyrics.

And if you have the ability to project videos at your club then add these two into rotation. They’re hilarious and might just be the perfect inspiration your class needs!

Work hard, play hard!

Look at those legs!
