The third volume of Now That's What I Call a Workout offers the expected mix of slamming dancefloor faves and mega pop hits from 2012 and 2013. As is custom with Now's workout collections, a number of the tracks are offered here as pumped-up remixes, like Bruno Mars' "Locked Out of Heaven [Sultan and Ned Shepard Remix]," Lady Gaga's "Applause [Empire of the Sun Remix]," and Demi Lovato's "Neon Lights [Country Club Martini Crew Radio Remix]." Also featured are tracks by Ellie Goulding, Avicii, Krewella, and Lana Del Rey. In addition to being a well-stacked dance-pop highlights reel, it also keeps pace as a high-energy exercise set.
