FITFCK, the fitness dating and social platform, have launched their official dating playlists on Spotify. FITFCK has announced that the first playlist has now gone live, and new playlists will be added every Monday with different genres and workouts considered.
The first playlist is a ‘US Rap Gym Playlist’, and features tracks from Pop Smoke (Got It On Me), 50 Cent (I Get Money), Drake (Nonstop), and Kanye West (All Of The Lights). All tracks are between 130-170 beats per minute to incentive a higher paced workout in time with the music.
It’s well proven that music enhances a workout session. Scientific American found that: “In the last 10 years the body of research on workout music has swelled considerably, helping psychologists refine their ideas about why exercise and music are such an effective pairing for so many people as well as how music changes the body and mind during physical exertion. Music distracts people from pain and fatigue, elevates mood, increases endurance, reduces perceived effort and may even promote metabolic efficiency. When listening to music, people run farther, bike longer and swim faster than usual—often without realising it. In a 2012 review of the research, Costas Karageorghis of Brunel University in London, one of the world’s leading experts on the psychology of exercise music, wrote that one could think of music as “a type of legal performance-enhancing drug.”
Jamie Wykes-Hobday, founder of FITFCK, said: “Music has always played a huge part in my fitness journey. All the way back when I was playing rugby at school, it was The Prodigy before every game. Now in the gym I can’t live without some form of music playing in my headphones. Personally, I listen to a variety of genres whilst training and I’m hoping the the FITFCK playlists will be able to benefit our users alongside their training! We also allow people to add tracks to the playlists themselves, which is again enriching our community aspect.”
