In 2018, the number of cryotherapy/ice bath-themed playlists increased.

Curious about which songs pump people up during a workout? Or which exercise type may be on the rise?

With 43.5 million workout-themed playlists on Spotify, they check annually to see which songs are the top motivators, as well as where people are most active.

Perhaps due to the intensely motivational lyrics, Eminem’s ’Till I Collapse is, for the third year in a row, the top global song for getting through that run or spin cycling class.

The song is the go-to for men, while Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’ Uptown Funk is the top choice for women in workout playlists.

Women over the age of 30 stream more workout music than men on Spotify.

In 2018, the number of cryotherapy/ice bath-themed playlists increased. This practice involves exposure to very cold temperatures to heal tissue. Top songs are Vanilla Ice’s Ice Ice Baby and Foreigner’s Cold As Ice.

Finland is the most active country in terms of the amount of workout music. Sweden is the most zen, based on their yoga-themed playlists.
