When you’re searching for the best retro music for fitness classes, there’s a wealth of great tunes that span all decades. Hits from the 70s, 80s and 90s are commonly used in fitness music, where participants want to sing along and enjoy the music as much as the workout!
From ABBA to Aqua, the catchy riffs and memorable lyrics are what motivate people in group exercise classes.
However, using music by established artists can present problems when using them in an online exercise class or in a venue.
Firstly, if you use ‘original artist’ music in any fitness class, you have to pay royalties. To find out more about why you have to pay PPL and PRS licence fees, click here.
Not only that, if you’re using copyrighted music in an online class, you’re very likely to get your video muted or taken down. If you want to know why you’re getting muted, click here.
