Theme Ride Thursday: Chase Danger with this Spy-Themed Playlist and Profile

Click on the play button below and you’ll instantly be transported to a world of intrigue, danger, and, of course, sexuality. The James Bond theme song is one of the most universally known theme songs across the world. It was first recorded in 1962 by the John Barry Orchestra for the James Bond movie, Dr. No. This song laid the groundwork for an entire genre of music called “spy music” that was popular in the ’60s.

 

 

 

To honor this genre we have both a spy-themed playlist and profile, aptly called “Shaken, Not Stirred,” created by Larry Kenney.

The novelty of this HIIT profile lies in the theme that ties the music collection together. In addition to songs from the 007 soundtracks, this profile includes tunes from other espionage thrillers and popular music, stitching together a satisfying spy-thriller result.

The profile is built around three loops increasing in intensity, punctuated by a climbing challenge at the end of each segment, followed by an active recovery before cranking the effort back up. It will hold your riders’ interest with a number of drills. The profile begins with a warm-up to the James Bond theme to set the mood for the class.

Although this version of the class is 45 minutes, you can use the spy-themed playlist below to either expand the profile time or better suit your song preferences.
