Workout gadgets + powersongs

Since I talked about my recent Nike+ purchase a few weeks back, I've discovered some more gadgetry options and info. that will help further empower + enhance those workouts.

  1. Word up: talks about Apple getting Nike+ to work with your iphone, yay!
  2. RunAway ($9) is a clip-on gadget allowing you to use Nike+ with any kicks.
  3. Nike+ Sportsband ($59) comes out today, for those who prefer no music.
  4. Nike Amp+ Remote ($79) use wrist for feedback, & song switching.
What do you use to track your movin' bod? On a side note -- I've got some emails requesting good workout jams, and since my music situation is a little chaotic, please help me by sharing some of your favorite workout and cool down songs. Thanks.

Songs I recently jammed to:

*Breathe - Telepopmusik
*Heartbeat - Annie
*Just Be - Tiesto & Kirsty Hawkshaw
*Light A Rainbow (Whippenberg Mix) - Tukan
*Move Along - the All-American Rejects

wonderful post! music can really affect the way we work, play and relax. and exercise! great list of songs to work out to. i like "love love love" by tristan prettyman. it starts out like it's a cool down song, but it's a nice easy workout song.

Oh perfect timing for this post! I just bought new runners, and on my way out I saw that little gadget. I was thinking of exchanging for the nikes so I could use it, but maybe I'll just get the clip!

"Sit down, Stand up" from Radioheads hail to the theif is perfect for the first song when begining a cycling workout because it starts so calm and just starts going crazy nuts.

Listening to Lykke Li as I write this...thank you for the introduction..I'll be sure to pass it along to the hubby--he loves new music. I need to be more motivated to workout--maybe downloading a few tunes on this playlist will help? I know we already have a few already...
