Leanne grew up a dancer and has performed with Taylor Swift and Katy Perry, appeared on TV shows such as X Factor, Strictly Come Dancing and she even performed in the opening and closing ceremonies of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and her love for music comes across in her classes.
Amanda Segal, cohost of the Pelo Buddy TV podcast & news show, recaps 10 of the most popular music rides Leanne Hainsby has led so far (as of 2021). Find the full list below with links to each class – or watch the embedded video below (find it here on YouTube) for a sneak peak at each of these classes, brought to you by Pelo Buddy TV.
Kicking off the list at number 10 is Leanne’s 30 min 2000s Rock Ride from March 25, 2021. Turn up the volume and rock out playing the air guitar or drums whilst sweating it out to U2, Linkin Park and Incubus. With the great playlist you are guaranteed to ‘Get One Step Closer’ to your fitness goal.
Next on the list at number 9 is her 30 minute Disco ride from February 4, 2021. Dance it out on the bike to the beats of Donna Summer, Diana Ross, CHIC and Gloria Gaynor that defined a generation. Disco balls are recommended but not required.
In at number 8 is our only 45 minute ride – the 2010 ride from February 18, 2021. If you are looking for a longer session with Leanne this one is definitely one not to be missed. Starting the class with a 7 minute warm up to Justin Bieber and Little Mix and ending the cool down with Ed Sheeran and a main ride which includes Cardi B, Britney Spears and Avicii this ride has something for everyone.
Number 7 on the list is Leanne’s 30 minute 80s ride from November 27, 2020. This class has all the classics starting with Rick Astley’s ‘Never gonna give you up’, ‘Fight for your right’ by the Beastie Boys and Eye of the Tiger by Survivor. It is a fun ride that will have you singing along from start to finish.
Number 6 is a ‘Live from Home’ ride. It’s Leanne’s 30 min 90s ride from April 28th, 2020.
Back when the lockdown started in the UK, the instructors moved from in studio production to recording from home and they proved very popular. We also got the first viewing of ‘Mickey on the shelf’!
With music by Cher, Lauryn Hill, Whitney Houston and The Cranberries over 80,000 members cannot be wrong. Be sure to check this ride out.
Halfway through the list, at number 5 it is Leanne’s 20 minute 2010s ride from February 1st, 2021.
This ‘Music First’ ride featuring music by Ariana Grande, Calvin Harris, Drake and Nicki Minaj is a real energy and mood booster and even though it is the shortest ride on the list, you are guaranteed to get a workout with the 9 efforts during this ride!
Fourth on the list, an epic ride, Leanne’s 30 min Club Classical from October 30th 2020 – this ride combines the best club classics – we get to ride to some of the biggest club anthems with a twist.
In at number 3, it has to be Leanne’s 30 min Celine Dion Ride back from December 19th 2019. With sparkles around her neck Leanne glowed as we rode to Celine’s River Deep, Mountain High, Flying on my own, and of course the Power of love.
At number 2, we head to Broadway (or the West end) for the 30 minute Wicked Ride from January 21, 2021.
I’m a huge fan of Broadway shows and this class had me singing the likes of ‘Defying Gravity’ and ‘Popular’ the top of my lungs, this is just a fun sing-along ride which will work your legs and your vocal cords in equal measures!
