Cardio. Do you watch (Music) Videos while on it?

I rarely see it in GoodLife or even when I use to be at LA Fitness.

For me I get bored easily and even listening to music when doing cardio. I have a Music Video playlist, not only it helps me move but I can do at least 40 minutes.

I know most have built-in TV but content isn't great.

I don't watch music videos but I watch you tube vids and other stuff on my iPod while on a bike or treadmill. My gym doesn't have built in anything on the cardio equipment and I don't miss it.

me too!!!!
ever since netflix began adding the download to my device feature, i've found longer runs of 20-30 mins are alot easier to kind of get through on my heavy cardio days.
-tv shows are great
-i find documentaries are good as well because i can go back and forth and listen to it and not watch
-action movies with long battle/action sequences. i generally queue these up when im doing high speed interval sprinting
all of the above are pretty much at least 30 mins in duration as well, so these will help if you're trying to run for a longer time and push your cardio endurance

one thing thats an absolute must for me is a towel to cover the timer/calorie calculator, distance ran etc. i find my brain tries to justify stopping if i keep looking at those numbers and it helps me focus on watching the movie/show and running at the same time

I used to read texture all the time BUT after reading about cardio vs HIIT I might be going the HIIT way and well I am trying to figure out how to read while Elipticalling ( is that even a word?) like hell for 15 sec every min of slow burn.
