Top 10 workout tracks

TOP 10 WORKOUT TRACKS FOR JANUARY: “Typically, the beginning of a new year is when folks resolve to get into better shape,” Run Hundred’s Chris Lawhorn notes. This month's mix features a lively bundle of songs to help you kick things off with a bang.” Making the cut are dueling remixes from both of the world's biggest boybands, Icona Pop and Charli XCX's theme song from Snooki & JWOWW, Nicki Minaj's aptly titled new single, a Coldplay cut (!?) and not one but two entries slogging along at under 100 BPM from a one-off trio of stars. Here's the full list, provided by Run Hundred and resulting from votes placed at the useful and popular workout music blog.

Nicki Minaj, “Va Va Voom” – 128 BPM
Coldplay, “Charlie Brown” – 138 BPM
Icona Pop & Charli XCX, “I Love It” – 126 BPM
