As summer gives way to fall, let the played out songs in your gym mix give way to some current alternatives. This month's top picks have plenty going for them -- with a variety of genres and tempos represented. Moreover, with just a few new tracks here and there, you can re-energize your whole routine.
In the list below, you'll find a pair of uptempo remixes from Demi Lovato and Madonna. Elsewhere, there are wildcard tracks -- like a single from reunited '90s darlings Veruca Salt and a collaboration between Flo Rida, Robin Thicke, and the bass player from Earth, Wind & Fire. Lastly, you'll find a pair of brisk tracks above 140 beats per minute (BPM) from Canadian teen sensation Shawn Mendes and roots rocker Elle King.
