MUSIC | willPower Instructor Network

Putting together music for willPower IGNITE is similar to willPower & grace® in that you have the freedom to choose your own songs. The guidelines, however, are slightly different, since students are NOT working on rhythm

BPM

130-145 (yes – that fast!)! Since you are encouraging people to work OFF rhythm, and pick up speed at the end, faster songs are sometimes better.

Lyrics

Well – this is similar to wp&g – if you use lyrics – they’ve got to have positive messaging.

With regards to using lots of lyrics: remember – you have a lot of coaching. If your students are distracted by words, they might not listen to you. However, songs with lyrics can be sprinkled in… especially after week 5 or 6 when your students become familiar with the exercises.

VOLUMe

Do you remember that line in your Phase I manual that read: “We multi task well”? So – here’s your chance to put that to practice in a big way. By round 6, 7 and 8… when you’re coaching your students to “Meet it or beat it”! When you are building the intensity… raising your voice, shouting WHOOO HOOO… well – get yourself over to the stereo and raise the roof! (Or – the volume).

Just remember:  by the STRETCH… you’ll need to lower the music again. No one wants to stretch to screaming loud music.
