Watching TV on the Treadmill

Working out doesn’t have to be boring. Tons of people like watching the TV while they exercise on the treadmill. I’ve been to the gym a few times this month and I always seem to get sucked into the shows and soap operas that they have playing even though I can’t hear what’s going on. Even the commercials are better than watching the mirror in front of me.

I’m even considering bringing headphones without my mp3 player just so I can plug into the treadmills and get my TV watching done while I exercise. It’s actually more like I’ll be getting my exercise in while I watch TV. That just shows where my priorities are. I like listening to music while I’m at the gym to but that seems kind of lame since there is already music playing through the PA in the gym. If I’m at home though then music is great because I can turn up the speakers. That’s not something I get to do very often.

I have wondered what it wold be like to have a show that is dedicated just to workouts. Lots of people could tell you the music that they prefer for the gym, or even for specific exercises like running or maxing out with the weights. I wonder if having a show or a dvd that is just for exercising would help me get in the mood to exercise. If I end up with this though I really hope that it doesn’t lead to just watching exercise videos. That would kind of defeat the entire purpose of exercising for me which is to improve my self-esteem.
