The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    iPod & the gym

    Who has a iPod out there? Do you take it to the gym? How do you wear it if you do? I've been trying to find a better solution to keeping my iPod in my pocket. Thinking about getting on of them arm bands, but I wasn't sure if they look dumb or not. Drop your thoughts.

    I have one. It came with a little case for it which had a clip on it. I would just clip it on my waist band.

    The clip broke though now, so here I am putting it in my damn pocket if I have one.

    Rene, he wanted replys from people that take theirs to the gym.

    I believe you have to go to the gym to reply.

    hey illa -

    I have an iPod mini and even got the arm band... but I returned the arm band the next day. I just can't imagine lifting with the arm band. So I keep my iPod in my pocket and the headphone cord rarely gets in the way. Besides, I feel the iPod is safer in my pocket and less showing off. Even the mini is too big to wear on your arm... kind of dorky in my opinion.

    If you have firewire, they're charged off the firewire port. If you're connecting via USB 2.0 their cradle has a separate connector that hooks up to a wall socket. There should be no compatibility problems. They work universally on windoze and mac OSes.

    I can't bring myself to wear a fanny pack. But, if you wear one, more power to you.

    Yeah, I was thinking about getting an arm band for when I run. Wearing the arm band while I do curls just wouldn't be the same. I need to focus on my bi's and not my iPod. I was just hoping somebodd had some cool innovative idea for rocking your iPod at the gym. Guess not

    **waits for the smart-ass "innovative" comments**

    Instead of a fanny pack you could always try a man purse. It works for ectx.

    Do the belt clips actually work?

    I have an Ipod and would like to buy a clip, I found this on ebay:

    Do you guys think it will stay on mesh shorts?

    I just heard Ipods have a battery in them that dies after a year and 1/2 and they are not replaceable. Enjoy!

    that's why i bought the 3-year replacement plan for an extra $20
