Do gadgets or gear motivate you more?

When it comes to exercise we all need a little outside motivation. I am wondering what motivates you to get out there and exercise or to push yourself harder - a new gadget or new gear?

Yeah, I'm torn. I can't imagine life without my Ipod. But then I also have a shoe obsession. LOL @lesliann who gets inspired to workout by guys. That is also a good answer, and much more cost-efficient than gadgets and gear. :)

Gear I love when i get cute stuff to hit the gym in! feeling totally great and comfortable in clothes makes all the effort worth it!

Gadgets--I always listen to podcasts when I walk my dog or ride my bike. I think both make the time go by faster. I also recently added a cyclocomputer to my bike. It's totally a vanity thing--it tells me what distance I've traveled, my current speed and my max speed, among other things--but I love it! It does motivate me in some ways--I try to beat my highest speed or longest ride. I'm also looking forward to getting my free pedometer in the mail!

It's more the new sneakers, gym outfits, weight gloves, that get me pumped up. With the occasional new play list of songs on my nano of course. ;)
