Podrunner is ranked as the top workout mix due to the sheer number of downloads of this free podcast on iTunes. And there is good reason why Podrunner is one of the most downloaded workout mixes available today.
DJ Steve boyett is a hard working DJ who not only does DJing for top events including Burning Man and various clubs throughout the West Coast but also produces 3 weekly podcasts, all of which are in the Top 40 on iTunes list of Podcasts.
His Podrunner weekly workout mixes just celebrated their 3 years anniversary. I’ve been downloading his podcasts weekly for about 2 years and am completely hooked.
Steve boyett has made Podrunner mixes specifically for those seeking the most out of their workouts and the music to get them through it on a daily basis. The fixed BPM (beats per minute) mixes means that you’ll get into a groove quickly and easily and keep your heart pumping throughout your workout.
Another feature that makes Podrunner podcasts so unique is that DJ Steve boyett varies the speed of each mix to make sure everyone from sprinters to walkers find at least a few podcasts that fit their needs. Some of the BPMs are so high that only the fastest runners will find their groove while others are perfect for a heart healthy walk around the park.
But that is the beauty of Podrunner, each week Steve Boyett produces a high quality workout mix combining some of the top beats and tracks found at www.resonantvibes.com ensuring that there is something for everyone. Each mix has a set BPM clearly labeled with the episode, you can find your perfect workout groove by selecting the episodes that match your workout endurance and speed.
Another fun and unique feature of the Podrunner podcasts is that each episode features an introduction from Steve boyett himself filling the first 2 minutes or so with Podrunner updates and a little bit of humor too. You can also tell from these spoken intros that our dedicated DJ is truly appreciative of each and every listener who downloads his mixes.
DJ Steve boyett also produces a podcast called Podrunner Intervals that combine tracks on one mix that vary in BPM throughout the mix. These mixes are said to be specially designed for interval training sought after many exercising individuals who want to build endurance and strength. These Interval mixes increase and decrease the BPM throughout the track to help pace your workout. (Editor note: Steve Boyett has informed me that as of this writing, the Intervals podcast is on hiatus.)
On top of these two exercise podcasts, he also produces Groovelectric, which can be best described as chill electronic music that makes for great party or dance music for when you just want to relax.
