The artists behind this month's top workout tunes could easily pass for the lineup of a great, summer music festival. Kicking off the day, you'd find upstarts like Shawn Mendes and crossover favorites like Tegan & Sara. Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood could headline the country stage. Meanwhile, club acts like Sigala and The Chainsmokers supply beats in the dance tent.

Other noteworthy tracks this month include a Coldplay remix from Seeb (who turned Mike Posner's "I Took a Pill in Ibiza" into an unlikely hit). Adele makes an appearance with any unusually jaunty cut from her most recent album. Finally, Elle King turns up with a track from the Ghostbusters reboot. If any of these options strikes your fancy, here's the full top 10 list--according to the votes logged on workout music site Run Hundred.

  • Keith Urban & Carrie Underwood - "The Fighter" - 132 BPM
  • Shawn Mendes - "Treat You Better" - 83 BPM
  • Tegan & Sara - "Stop Desire" - 159 BPM
  • Adele - "Send My Love (To Your New Lover)" - 82 BPM
