Is it Nike, Gymshark or Peloton? Well, Golf Support did some research and guess who? Yes, it’s Nike which takes out the title as the world’s most popular TikTok fitness brand with 21 billion hashtagged posts.
The brand is famous in the fitness world and has collaborated with the likes of Kanye West, Lil Nas X and former professional Basketball player Michael Jordan.
Coming in second place is Gymshark with 5.6 billion hashtagged posts. This is one of the youngest brands in the Top 20 as the company was only founded in 2012 – but Gymshark has very quickly become a household name.
Adidas comes in third with 5.1 billion posts. This German brand has been around since the 40s and is still doing well. Lululemon didn’t do too badly coming in at fourth with a current total of 2.2 billion posts. This brand has become beloved by women for its leggings, perfect for low impact fitness such as yoga.
Other brands which did well were Ivy Park, Fabletics and ethical activewear brand Girlfriend Collective which all feature in top 20.
