Have I mentioned I bought a new spin bike? Here’s a new Spotify playlist I put together with Christian spinners in mind. Each song has a strong spin beat and a hopeful-because-of-Jesus message to get you moving in the saddle and ready to face the day.

No intended order. Mix and match.

I don’t have a peloton and don’t pay for group fitness. I spin on my own and motivate myself by matching my movement to the song’s rhythm. So for instance, with the first few songs:

  • Fight for Me – I do the chorus standing (especially because he says, “Stand up, stand up”). 🙂
  • Good Feeling – I sprint (or go double time) on the chorus or the whole song.
  • Miracle – I go up-2-3-4, down-2-3-4 on the chorus.
  • Blessings on Blessings – higher resistance and up on the chorus, keeping it low (no bouncing).
  • The Way You Made Me – flat road, high speed
  • etc. 🙂

(By the way, these song lyrics don’t necessarily reflect my theological perspectives.)

Are you a spinner? Let me know if you like the set!

Spin Secrets

I know this isn’t my typical post, but I have to share another little something I figured out.

At the beginning of ’22, I shared my new spin corner on Instagram. Since I’m working out at home lately (rather than the gym) I don’t mind bluetoothing to my laptop instead of my phone. Which means I can do THIS:

For years I’ve wanted to listen to music (for my spin beat) and a podcast at the same time. I figured out a way. You just open two tabs on your laptop. Spotify and the direct link to the podcast (most of them have a player) and wallah! It works!

Today I’m spinning to my Christian Spin 2022 playlist and listening to a Bible Project episode on movements and links. How about you? What are you spinning to, and what are your spinner secrets?

Do you live like it's true?

From the platform, the page, or the podcast microphone, I'm inviting you to open your Bible with me, drink deeply of the Story, and live like it's true.
