- In France, where house music is famously popular in nightclubs, many local Fitbit users are enjoying DJ duo Ofenbach’s hit tracks Katchi and Be Mine when they get in the zone for a big workout. The French are also most likely to pound the pavement to the beats of Cuban-American Camila Cabello’s Havana.
- Germans searching for the perfect workout track are most likely to choose local rapper Olexesh’s song Magisch.
Global data also indicates that fitness enthusiasts are choosing particular playlists to fuel specific types of workouts, with Jack Ãœ most popular for running. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis is best for a marathon session, Destiny’s Child for a gym session and Kodomo and Small Black for cycling and walking.
