The Top 10 Workout Songs for August 2014


Ending summer on a high note, this month's top 10 list features a fun variety of dance cuts, club remixes, and quirky collaborations. On the cardio front, you'll find a pair of tracks from Cash Cash—an original song plus a remix of Katy Perry's latest single. So if you're looking for something uptempo to score your next run, both of these fit the bill.

For lower-rep workouts, there's an updated version of the summertime smash “Turn Down for What” that keeps the same 100 beats-per-minute (BPM) as the original while dialing up the intensity and adding new verses from Juicy J, 2 Chainz, and French Montana.

From out of left field, you'll find a country-meets-pop hit featuring Florida Georgia Line, Luke Bryan, and Jason Derulo. Equally surprising, the single that received the highest number of votes this month is an ode to going hard from Swedish DJ duo Dada Life and heavy metal icon Sebastian Bach.

On the whole, this playlist compiles a healthy mix of new tunes, fresh takes on recent favorites, and a few curve balls. There's plenty here to keep you moving and a couple to keep you guessing. So, what are you waiting for? Get these lively tracks on your next fitness mix to spice up your end of summer workouts!
