The survey was conducted by marketing research firm OnePoll and narrowed down the top 50 songs that were picked as the “best” by frequent exercisers.

“We often say that music ‘moves us,’ but when it comes to workout playlists, that influence can be quite literal,” RockMyRun’s Chief Operating Officer Katie Addison told SWNS. “Music not only sets the tone for the workout, but according to our user data, it can actually set the pace for runners – with the speed for 65% of our users increasing with the [beats per minute] of their music.”
