Music is one of the most controversial topics in a health club: You will never be able to please everyone. For group exercise, instructors usually choose the music, and it is hoped they are picking selections that are appropriate for the type of class, and the type of participants.

Variety is key, as you don’t want to bore your members out of a class. Age-appropriate music is also important. As far as attracting and keeping participants, upbeat, motivating music can help.

Volume should also be considered. Participants should be able to hear the instructor clearly over the music. One of the most common problems in group classes is playing music too loudly.
