“Indian Summer” by Jai Wolf is my go-to morning warm-up! The energetic, feelsy vibe is perfect for waking up and starting the day with positivity.

After the warm-up, I love to get the heart rate pumping with “By the Way” (Eric Lam Remix) by Red Hot Chilli Peppers—it gets the body moving and focused on the workout ahead.

There is nothing like pushing through a tough hill as the finale with “Rise Up” (JR Nelson Remix) by Andra Day. A physical and mental challenge to bring the workout home and send you off feeling powerful and strong!

For a chill warm up, I'm digging “Millionaire” (Cash Cash Remix) by Nelly—it's got good energy, positive vibes, and provides a nice way to sonically ease into movement.

Time to get serious about a climb? Let's get gritty! “Jungle” by X Ambassadors & Jamie N Commons Remix feat. Jay Z always makes me feel like I'm ready to #werk.

When I'm inspired to start sprinting for the finish line, I always turn to “Work This Body” by Walk the Moon. I mixed a BALLER remake myself that I'm happy to share with anyone who asks.

As a dancer, music has always played a crucial part in creatively expressing myself both in my workouts and in life. In my playlists each song holds it's own chapter to a story, and in that story I am able to connect with my riders by creating a dialogue with whatever feeling the song emotes. 

“A Sky Full of Stars” (Live at the Royal Albert Hall) by Coldplay brings out a sense of accomplishment—as if nothing in this world is too hard for you to conquer.

“Welcome to the Black Parade” (Steve Aoki Remix) by My Chemical Romance gives you that extra push to make you feel like a badass who doesn't mind kicking down doors and taking names.

“Dive in the Pool” by Barry Harris feat. Pepper Mashay allows the most dramatic opportunity for you to be the sensual superstar your inner performer knows they are.

“Good as Hell” by Lizzo is a feel-good, sassy, get ready to go out with your girl squad anthem.

I was not the biggest fan of Ed until Shape of You (bvd kult remix) by Ed Sheeran came out and now I cannot stop listening to it!

When I want to crank up the volume and just absolutely lose my mind, Major Lazer is who i turn to. There is no song I don’t like that they put out, but “Light it Up” (Quintino Remix) by Major Lazer has that ‘dig your heels in the dirt and just do it’ attitude that gets my adrenaline pumping.

I believe that music fuels you during a workout and can feed your emotions and intentions. I make a playlist everyday based off feelings and intentions of my own, but also for the riders. When a rider shares how they are feeling or what they are going through, I tailor my playlists to fit the vibe. 

When I want to feel strong: “Lose Yourself” by Eminem (feat. Selection God Choir) 

When I want to feel happy: “False Alarm” (Hook N Sling Remix) by Matoma & Becky Hill 

When I want to feel sexy: “7/11”(Jack U Remix) by Beyonce
