PureGym has today revealed the songs that we are listening to the most to get us pumped during our workouts.

Analysing over 142,000 songs which have been added to ‘workout’ and ‘gym’ related playlists by users on Spotify, the research revealed that Eminem’s 2002 hit ‘Till I Collapse is the song added the most amount of times, beating other up-tempo hits like SAINt JHN’s Roses (Imanbek Remix) and The Business by Tiësto to the top spot. The song, which has over a billion streams in total, is featured on a staggering 318 separate gym related playlists.

The findings from the research provide the ultimate inspiration for anyone looking for the perfect playlist to accompany their first gym workout, especially after the pandemic forced gyms to close across the world last year.

The top 10 songs identified in the research feature a high-tempo mix of dance and rap music, with Kanye West appearing twice, British DJ Joel Corry popping up in fourth and MEDUZA rounding things off with Lose Control, a song ready-made for hitting the gym.
