Americans have more than 31,000 gyms to choose from. How can you stand out from the crowd? The right playlist can help, and Cloud Cover Music can help.
Can You Play Personal Music for Your Patrons?
As a fitness professional, you probably have your own media player filled with ideal workout tunes and playlists. When you run, stretch, or climb, these are the tunes you play to keep you motivated.
Recorded music of the type you have on your personal player is protected by national copyright laws. Those laws might apply to the composition of the piece, the recording of it, or both. Play this for your patrons, and you're breaking the law.
How Can CCM Help?
Cloud Cover Music partners with organizations like ASCAP, BMI, and SOCAN, ensuring that our clients have access to a huge library of recorded music that they can play legally.
Choose one ideal playlist to share with all of your patrons. You can also create selections for different zones in your gym, such as these:
- Locker rooms
- Weight rooms
Access the streaming player from any browser or mobile device, and use our integrations to share your music through your existing Sonos system. Pull reports to ensure all of your locations are playing the music you chose. And survey your stakeholders to ensure they love the tunes you chose.
What Should You Play?
Walk into any gym in America, and you will likely hear modern music with a fast pace and a deep reliance on percussion. EDM, pop, and rock dominate the genres played.
Gyms also tend to be loud spaces, and it can be tempting to crank up the music to enhance the workout results.
If you push the volume to the limit, switching musical genres might be wise. Moving from pop to EDM would help give the workout the punch that your gym is looking for without adding hearing loss to the menu of services you offer.
Partner with Cloud Cover Music, and you can create custom playlists for your business. Pick and choose the songs you like, and start sharing right away.
