Using my iPod when I'm out and about is one of my favorite things by far, and I am lucky enough to live in an area that has a lot of natural parks. Don't get me wrong, when it is the summertime, I definitely have to plan my hikes early in the morning so that I don't die of heat stroke, but it is still worthwhile. I have found myself getting in much better shape as a result of using my iPod to motivate me when I'm hiking, and I also get to bring my dog with me too.
I tried to get my girlfriend to come with me, but she prefers to do those girly types of exercises like Yoga and Pilates. Oh well, to each his or her own, I guess. Either way, using my iPhone to motivate me to get outdoors is something that has helped both my dog and I get in incredible shape. I have to admit that I was one of those guys that was totally guilty of sitting on the couch and playing video games all the time, so those extra pounds just crept up on me. Using my iPhone to work out and hike with was the perfect solution for me!
