Many people use the motivating power of music to get them through an exercise session, so it’s no wonder that a Fitrated, a company that reviews fitness equipment, would commission a survey on workout music.
Here’s what they report. Any of this work for you? I quote:
- Lady Gaga is the most popular artist in the world for working out
- Pop (53%) is the most popular genre, followed by Hip-Hop/Rap and Classic Rock
- The Weeknd, Queen, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Chainsmokers, and Metallica are the top artists in their respective genres
- Fast-paced beats, motivational lyrics, and bass are the most desired element
Let’s get a little more granular:
