Exercise with Your iPod

Whatever your favorite way to sweat, you’ve got options with your iPod. Your iPod can become your constant exercise companion.

Exercising without music is unthinkable for some people. It might help psych you up to work your body through those boring miles on the treadmill or the endless reps and sets while weightlifting. Or it might transport you into a meditative state where, in the music’s groove, such things as long-distance running, skiing, or even practicing yoga seem to get easier. Given the happy marriage between music and exercise, it’s a wonder that Apple has produced such an inadequate case to help us work out with our iPods.

The case supplied with iPods these days isn’t very useful. In fact, it can be best described by the things it doesn’t do. It doesn’t stop the iPod from running out of gas 20 minutes (the time limit of the iPod’s built-in RAM) into a good run. It isn’t waterproof, mud-proof, or drop-proof. In short, it doesn’t let you jump around like a hooligan without fearing for your iPod’s safety. Luckily, other manufacturers have stepped in to pick up the slack.
