24 Hour Fitness Treadmills Compatible with Nike+iPod

Apple Nike + iPod Sport Kit for iPod nano at Amazon.comA few months ago, Life Fitness announced that they are making treadmills (and other machines) compatible with Nike+. That’s only a good thing if your gym uses these new Life Fitness machines. If you’re a member of 24 Hour Fitness, tracking your workouts just got easier.

Beginning in July, select 24 Hour Fitness clubs in New York, San Francisco, Miami, Denver, Portland and Salt Lake City will begin receiving Nike iPod enabled gym equipment, just in time for members to use the new machines to prepare for and compete in the Nike Human Race on August 31, 2008.

I KNEW there was a reason I kept my 24 Hour Fitness gym membership! I’m so lucky to be in one of the lucky cities where they are testing this new technology. All of a sudden I am excited about going to the gym again!

If you don’t know what Nike+ is, I’ve written several articles about it:

If I had to choose one invention of 2006 that totally changed the way I exercised, it would be the Nike+. Knowing that Nike, Apple, Life Fitness AND 24 Hour Fitness are going to support this innovative program just makes me more happy.

    Don’t get too excited. The operative word in that announcement, in addition to the very few cities where they are doing this, is “select.” Good for you if you are one of those lucky few. But after calling my 24-hour club in Sunnyvale and finding out that they are not going to be getting these, this announcement had the exact opposite effect on me — it has motivated me to find a gym I’m more happy with.

    I do agree that such a means of tracking and recording workouts is long overdue, though. Too bad 24-Hour Fitness decided to do this in such a limited way.
