The iPod Wins Hands Down

I knew FitSugar readers really believe in music for motivating a great workout, but I really had no idea how much you all loved your iPods.

When I asked you your favorite fitness gadget the resounding winner was the iPod. No other gadget came close to the beloved MP3 player. Not surprising the Nike+iPod came in second, but with hundreds of votes less. For me it is a toss up between my heart-rate monitor and my iPod. The heart-rate monitor keeps me on track, especially when I am interval training and the iPod entertains me on long runs.

Did you ask Santa for a fitness gadget? If you did, tell me about it in the comment section below.

Yep I asked for a new iPod, a pedometer, and one of those Bodybugg things. But those are super expensive so I probably won't find that under the tree.

I love my iPod but I now use a Zune. Everything I loved about my iPod (videos, all of my music, ability to listen to my podcasts) PLUS an FM tuner. Sometimes during my workout I just like to listen to the varied music that a radio DJ picks.

Isn't this a given? Having music around makes everything better especially working out. I want a waterproof shuffle to swim with!

Wouldn't it be cool if the iPod also worked as a heart rate monitor? I'd invent it, but I'm lazy and I'd rather have Apple do it. :)

WorldTrekker– I think you should definitely check with your trainer and see what your trainer has to say on the subject. :)

My iPod definitely helps me stick to working out. I love listening to music and I make time to create playlists that help pump up my energy levels.

I bought both of my parents iPod Nanos this year. They love them and exercise more! It's a great gift for those who want to be more active but need that little push.

Does a personal trainer count as a gadget? :)
