As soon as we recover from our pounding New Year’s Eve hangovers, we resolve to never drink again, well at least not until the next weekend. But seriously, with the New Year come many resolutions, most of which revolve around health and fitness. And some of us are far more successful in our noble goals than others. If you’re looking to lose a few party-pounds, tone up for the fast-approaching spring season, or finally reach the finish line in your first marathon, it’s time to hit the gym.
Nothing gets your body moving like the bass of a hard-hitting electro anthem. Music is the best motivation, whether you’re fist pumping on the dance floor or running hills on the treadmill. To help you keep your resolution alive, we asked DJ Brady Spear to create a custom workout playlist of his 10 favorite electro, tech-house and nu-disco tracks. A compilation of cult classics and new instant-hits from Cirez D, Roy Rosenfeld, Bingo Players, Mehdi, Justice and of course, Daft Punk.
The Los Angeles-based Brady Spear is a fixture in the San Diego nightlife scene, as one of Voyeur’s resident DJs and a touring member of the A.W.O.L. family. Up next, you can catch him spinning at Voyeur with LED Presents on Christmas Eve, at the W San Diego Hotel with Fortune 421 on New Year’s Eve, and at the A.W.O.L. Snow music and lifestyle experience in South Lake Tahoe this February.
Upgrade your fitness resolution with Brady Spear’s top 10 workout tracks.
