Xenia Ghali is a Greek DJ, producer, songwriter, and classically trained musician. She continues to shake up the dance music scene with her debut single ‘Broken’ featuring Katt Rockell (released on Pitbull’s Mr. 305 Records), and her follow up ‘Get Dirty,’ a collaboration with Grammy winning rapper Wyclef Jean. With performances in the US and in Europe, she's always on the go! We caught up with her between sets to share a playlist for our Summer rotation (including 'Under These Lights').
ATHLEISURE MAG: We all have our go to workouts, what sets are in your routine?
XENIA GHALI: I’ll start with 20 minutes of cardio, specifically I love the elliptical machine. Then I do a full-body circuit routine consisting of squats, lunges, crunches and arm exercises using light weights and many reps.
AM: How do you maintain balance with such a busy schedule?
XG: I work both in the US and in Europe so I travel a lot. Being on the road regularly means that it can be very challenging to maintain a balanced lifestyle. I do my best to see my family and friends any chance I get. When I am physically unable to spend time with them, I always make sure to keep in communication with them. In addition to this, exercising really helps me with being physically and mentally balanced.
AM: When you're not DJing a set, what's your personal style?
XG: My personal style is what I call ‘chill but edgy.’ I love fashion so I incorporate it even when I am casual. I love jeans (specifically G-Star), drop-crotch pants, oversized t-shirts, and of course accessories such as hats!
