The Top 10 Workout Songs for August 2015

Fort Wayne, IN – August 4, 2015 – The summer may be winding down, but you’d never guess it from this month’s workout playlist. While June and July featured an assortment of sunny pop songs, August’s top picks are more eclectic in two main ways: tempo and genre. With some faster songs and greater variety in your mix, you’ll be perfectly equipped to make the most of the diminishing daylight.
If you’re browsing by tempo, you’ll find a warm-up track from EDM favorites Krewella and a perfectly-titled cool down track from Demi Lovato. In between, you’ll find plenty of music around 130 beats per minute (BPM) and a couple power tracks that’ll push you above 150 BPM. If you’re looking for highlights by genre, check out the dancefloor smash from Cash Cash, the remix from David Guetta, or comeback singles from one-time Disney star Hilary Duff and ’90s rockers Third Eye Blind.
Between the pop, rock, and club stars—and the range of tempos—you should find the exact tracks you need to round out your existing mix. Alternatively, you can take this month’s picks and use them wholesale—relying on their diversity to keep you engaged and moving.
