If you’re struggling to find the motivation for an at-home workout during the current COVID-19 lockdowns, then picking an uplifting playlist can help keep you energized. With this in mind, UK gym operator PureGym has gone through Spotify data to find the most popular workout tunes to create an ultimate fitness playlist for exercising at home.
After searching Spotify playlists that include the words “exercise at home,” “home workout” and “home exercise”, and analyzing the 27,092 songs in these playlists, PureGym was able to curate its own workout playlist of the songs and artists that appeared the most. According to the Spotify data, the world is mainly listening to Dua Lipa’s ‘Don’t Start Now’ while getting active, with the track appearing in 12 per cent of all home workout playlists. Another track from the British singer, appropriately named ‘Physical’ was the fourth most popular song to listen to while exercising at home.
Eminem is the most popular artist to work out to, appearing on a third of all home workout playlists, while fellow rapper Kanye West appears on 246 of the 905 home workout playlists analyzed.
PureGym Insider Kay commented on the findings saying, “In these unusual circumstances, many people will be switching up their exercise routines to be at home. It’s important that we try to stay active and positive throughout this time. I find listening to music to be a great way to enjoy my workouts. We thought that pulling together the most popular music from around the world would provide some inspiration for our members to keep motivated during their home workouts.”
