10 Workout Remixes That Turn Up the Heat on Top Hits

Corbis Images

The virtue of having remixes in your workout playlist is that they offer the best of both worlds: songs you already love and music that sounds brand new. With their help, you can feel both comfortable and motivated at the same time.

The current crop of remixes offers a cornucopia of different sounds. On the pop front, you'll find a scorcher from Jessie J and a monster hit from Mark Ronson. On the rock side of things, you can check out hits from Sheppard and Imagine Dragons that have been re-worked for the dance floor. Elsewhere in the mix, there are multi-layered treats like David Guetta remixing himself or a song by Mr. Probz that was remixed first by Robin Shulz and updated later by T.I. and Chris Brown.

Apart from their familiarity, the advantage of most remixes is that they emphasize rhythm and groove—which help them get more spins in the club and gym alike. To that end, the tunes below should make it super easy to top off your workout mix. Just grab the tracks you already love, press play, and let the beats work their magic.
