After analyzing the data, they found that Eminem’s “’Til I Collapse” is the top workout song. The team polled the more than 40 million users and 1.5 billion playlists to generate the top tracks across a variety of different workout styles including running, cycling, weightlifting, CrossFit, yoga, the gym, and Tae-Bo. (Eminem was nowhere to be found on the list of the 35 yoga songs — which sounds like a missed opportunity.) Other top artists include Avicii, Skrillex, Fort Minor, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Kanye West, and Dropkick Murphys.
Some other interesting findings: Joggers prefer pop and alternative music, bikers listen to EDM and pop, and the CrossFit crowd is pumped up by rock and hip-hop tracks. And, across all workouts, rap/hip-hop is the most popular genre. See the full breakdown over at Billboard.
