Here at Life Fitness we’ve seen a dangerous trend developing around the world that is a serious threat to public safety: texting and running.
At gyms all over the world text – tweet – and email-addicts are glued to their phones while running at a steady 5.2 mph on the treadmill. It’s multi-tasking spiraling out of control. Maybe you’re that person.
I’ll admit that a near brush with death while answering an email mid-stride was the inspiration for this post.

Let’s admit it – one of the best parts about running on a treadmill or sweating it out on the elliptical is getting to watch some of your favorite TV at the same time. But, not just any show will do for a great workout, so I bring to you my Top Ten TV Shows to Workout To:
1. Survivor – The ultimate workout motivation? Knowing I would be the one to survive on a deserted island.
2. Biggest Loser – For obvious reasons.
3. CSI: Miami – The awesome action scenes in a city with a year-round bikini season will definitely motivate.
