Cut through the music clutter and straight to the month's best workout songs—from Britney Spears, Sia, and more heart-pumping artists
Familiarity and freshness are key ingredients in a workout playlist. While songs from the former category provide reliable inspiration, those in the latter bring the dynamism. Thankfully, June's top workout tunes feature a healthy balance of both.
Starting on the familiar side of things, you'll find chart returns from pop stars like Britney Spears and Ricky Martin. On the fresh side, you'll find breakthrough tracks from newer acts like Shawn Mendes and Rachel Platten. Lastly, in the best of both worlds department, you'll find new remixes of recent hits from Sia and Carly Rae Jepsen.
If your current playlist sounds a little dated, there are plenty of tracks here that can liven it up. But if you're looking for a more ambitious change, this month's top 10 tracks make for a balanced and invigorating playlist just as they are. Like a good run, it doesn't matter which route you choose—so long as you pick one and get going.
