If I was working on a workout music time capsule—trying to show future generations what folks listened to in the gym in 2012 - the highlights from August alone would nearly do the trick.

In this month's top 10, running favorites LMFAO, Flo Rida, and Pink all made appearances. Pitbull turned up twice—once in a remix and once with Shakira. And, the year's two biggest hits ("Call Me Maybe" and "Somebody That I Used to Know") were both reinvented as club tracks.

Here's the full list, according to votes placed at Run Hundred--the web's most popular site for workout music.

Pitbull & Shakira - Get It Started - 129 BPM

The Wanted - Chasing the Sun - 129 BPM

Calvin Harris & Ne-Yo - Let's Go - 130 BPM

Pink - Blow Me (One Last Kiss) - 113 BPM

Owl City & Carly Rae Jepsen - Good Time - 126 BPM

Pitbull - Back in Time (Play-N-Skillz Remix) - 128 BPM

Carly Rae Jepsen - Call Me Maybe (Coyote Kisses Remix) - 124 BPM

LMFAO - Sorry for Party Rocking (Wolfgang Gartner Remix) - 130 BPM

Gotye & Kimbra - Somebody That I Used to Know (Tiesto Remix) - 129 BPM

Flo Rida - Whistle - 103 BPM
