Remixes rule in this month's workout music round-up. Exactly half of the songs voted into the top 10 appear in re-worked versions. As always, this is a blessing for folks in search of musical inspiration, since these uptempo updates take existing gym favorites and accentuate their beats and momentum.

Songs getting a makeover include the latest from from Gwen Stefani, a club anthem from David Guetta, and the three way collaboration between Jennifer Lopez, Iggy Azalea, and Pitbull. Meanwhile, the other half of this month's list includes a Taylor Swift song you might recognize from a Target commercial, a Fall Out Boy track that pays tribute to a scene from Pulp Fiction, and the follow-up to Clean Bandit and Jess Glynne's breakthrough hit "Rather Be."

By combining new music from Top 40 regulars and updated versions of recent hits, this month's list strikes a fine balance between fresh and familiar sounds -- both of which will come in handy when you're ready to get moving.

Here's the full list, according to a poll on Run Hundred -- the web's most popular workout music blog.

  • Gwen Stefani - "Baby Don't Lie (Kaskade & KillaGraham Remix)" - 100 BPM
  • Taylor Swift - "Style" - 95 BPM [not available on Spotify]
