After one of my recent posts where I spouted-off on my new-found determination to increase my running, I was contacted by Chris from Runhundred.com. He has compiled a list of a list of the Top 10 workout songs for the Winter of 2012. While some of the music isn’t my usual taste, I found that the songs were a nice change of pace with fast tempos, and some of his more recent playlists contain some alt-rock and even the Beatles (thumbs up). After subscribing to his mailing list, I receive emails containing playlists on a weekly basis.

The Top 10 Workout Songs For Winter 2012
San Francisco, CA – Jan 11, 2012 – Traditionally, winter is the time of year when folks find it hardest to get out and exercise. In the hopes of keeping folks motivated, readers from Run Hundred–the web’s most heavily-trafficked site for workout music–were polled regarding their favorite, current workout songs. The resulting top 10 list has a little of what you’d expect—and a little you might not. Flo Rida, who’s no stranger to this list, shows up in two recent tracks. Enrique Iglesias continues his transition from balladeer to club rocker. And Kelly Clarkson, after faltering with the first single off her new album, bounced back ferociously with the second.
As for surprises, they’re mostly entries from folks relatively new on the dance scene. Highlights include songs from Tim Berg (who remixed his own track under his Avicii moniker), Skrillex (whose collaboration with Kaskade is the first dubstep track ever the make the Top 10), and Wolfgang Gartner (who’s made the chart with a little help from the Black Eyed Peas’ Will.I.Am).
Here’s the full list:
