Intervals Don’t Stand a Chance Against This Pump-Up Playlist

CityRow shares its top push-through tunes.

Every week, Your New Favorite Playlist introduces you to workout-worthy tunes from a different fitness brand. This week, CityRow shares a recent playlist.

We’ve been addicted to rowing machines for a while now; they work almost every muscle in your body and are super low-impact. The people who created the fitness studio CityRow are also big fans: “Our signature class combines rowing intervals on sexy, water-based row machines with dynamic sculpting exercises for the perfect balance of cardio and strength training,” says Annie Mulgrew, director of programming at the studio. “It’s a heart-pumping, sweat-drenched, total-body burn.”

Since rowing is all about rhythm, music is a huge part of the classes at CityRow, letting everyone know when to speed up or slow down. “Antidote” by Swedish House Mafia is a favorite track for Mulgrew right now. “It’s not music that I would usually listen to outside of class, and that’s why I love it,” she says. “It’s a song that makes me want to push myself, not one that is for easy listening. I placed it right in the middle of class when most clients—myself included—need to be reminded that they can and will be able to continue to work hard and finish strong.” The tune is one of several in this playlist Mulgrew shared from a recent class:
