Theme Ride Thursday: Burn, Baby, Burn—Profile and Playlist

I tend to use a lot of cues in class that talk about burning and torching calories during really hard segments of work. I also like to use cues that indicate to riders how their legs should feel during Zone 4 and 5 work. (See below, or check my Exercise Mantra Pinterest board, for a list of my favorite burn-/fire-related cues that you can incorporate into this ride.) So it makes sense that we curated a Burn/Fire playlist with an accompanying profile for you all this Theme Ride Thursday.

The playlist includes 186 songs spanning 12 hours of music with a “fire” or “burn” theme. Give it a listen and let us know if we missed a favorite. I did include several instrumental songs on this profile, as they really play well with the intensity and energy needed to conquer the work, but feel free to mix things up and make it your own.

A few of my favorites quotes are: 

                 burn fire lighter

     calories screaming

And my favorite, non-burn-/fire-related quote that always gets a laugh:

    Ive been teaching it all week and really love the fire theme, my classes love feeling burnt up, they keep coming back for more! I’m in SF and summer here = fog season for us so its fun to “burn it up” indoors! Thanks for the great profile!

    Good idea for theme! I only see 13 songs on the SPOTIFY playlist though.


    I get the profile if I click on the PDF version. Thought I would see the other songs. Does look like a winner. Thanks for your hard work.

      Hi Katy! Thanks for pointing that out. I was so excited and focused on launching the profile, that I didn’t include the playlist. It’s there now. Would love to know what you think once you teach it. Cheers!
