Fitness classes are the ultimate trifecta: physical activity, sweat therapy, and jam session.
This spring, TRX launched its TRX LIVE series, delivering fresh, daily workouts from some of the top TRX trainers around the world. Now, we’re sweetening that experience with our TRX Spotify channel.

Make It Work
For many of you, music is a major motivator and this is another way to enjoy the complete TRX class experience at home. If you’re working out with TRX LIVE via desktop, download and open the Spotify app on your computer, and fire up one of our playlists. Our TRX workouts stream via YouTube, and you can run both a workout and a Spotify playlist at the same time.
To adjust the sound balance between the music and your trainer’s instructions, check out the lower, right-hand corner of the Spotify window, where you’ll see a volume control slider to help you find the perfect level for your playlist. Once you adjust the slider, you can increase the overall volume using the standard sound controls on your computer.
If you're streaming a TRX workout on your mobile device, here’s where things get slightly trickier. Neither iOS nor Android operating systems will let you run a browse video and Spotify concurrently on your phone or tablet, but you can use two separate devices. For example TRX LIVE on the tablet, Spotify on your phone or smartwatch.

Pump Up the Jams
Okay, there are TRX playlists, but what does that mean?
It depends on who’s playing DJ. When TRX Master Trainer and six-time world logrolling champion Shana Verstegen is compiling her favorites, you’re going to hear the Backstreet Boys. “I have a very unhealthy obsession with the Backstreet Boys. Anybody who knows me even a little bit knows that it's pretty bad,” she said.
Rob McCullough, Former World Extreme Cagefighting Champ and TRX Master Trainer, gravitates to EDM. “Regardless if it's got words or not. You're moving. I like that,” he said.
On TRX Training and Development Manager Miguel Vargas’ ten (10!) hour playlist, you’ll hear everything from Beyoncé to Rage Against the Machine to Steve Aoki. When Zack Van Wagoner is working your arms to the point they might fall off, he’s probably playing rap. (Uncensored in his own workouts; radio-friendly edits at the TRX Training Center.)
In other words, the TRX Spotify channel is like Forrest Gump’s box of chocolates: you never know what you’re gonna get.
Crank up the tunes, or just enjoy some peace and quiet while you work out: either way, we’ve got fresh workouts rolling out daily on TRX LIVE to help you stay fit.
