Well, I think its finally time I track down an MP3 player. I have, thus far, avoided this MP3/I-POD phenomenom and frankly don't know where to start. I'm still bitching about scratched CD's - yeah I'm stuck in the 1990's.

Nevermind the local gym is playing all this ghey top-40 shit back to back- its difficult to do cardiovascular exercise to a Kelly Clarkson Techno Remix. Maybe the rainbow sticker with superimposed liberty bell on the gym door should have been a sign from God to "get the fuck out". I didn't think I was signing up for "Club Ramrod" with Richard Gere and Richard Simmons "Sweatin to the Oldies" live. Lesson learned and there really is no other gym choices around.

That aside, my job required I PT - so I should look into an MP-3 player. Its not necessary to feel like I'm at some rave party with chemlights and a fog machine (they don't have that but if it turned into a rave I don't think anyone would really notice IF it happened). I go to the gym to work out - not to trance out hopped up on X and touch myself - but to each their own.

Fortunately, I am not stationed in the city of homoerotic love - just TAD/TDY why here. I'll make do until I check out of my hotel. Any thought on MP3 players would be of interest - like I said I'm clueless like a caveman who gets handed a Nintendo.

Just concentrate really, really hard about how much you hate homosexuals while you're lifting weights.

Think of nothing else but that and you won't be able to hear the music, therefore you won't hardly catch teh ghey at all.

If you'll be running or doing any other jarring movements a flash MP3 player (think iPod shuffle) would be better. May not hold as many songs, but do you really need to hold 30,000 songs vs 1,000?

I have a Sony hard drive type MP3 player and it can skip/pause if jarred hard enough.

For some reason that makes me think of the Bobcat Goldthwait skit about gay bashing where the gay basher ends up masturbating in his camaro while thinking about the queers he beat up.

As I once heard a former Mr Olympia say, "if you can still hear the chit chat, you ain't lifting hard enough." That was his response to a complaint about too much talking in the gym, but I think it also applies to music. Do a set of 20 rep squats, and you'll be lucky if you can even hear the music over your pounding heart.z

Thanks for all the input. I went with an I-Pod shuffle 512mb model. Fits my needs and I appreciate the info from everyone. Someone else from our team noticed that this Gym does seem to be Club Cornhole.

Aside from the active duty military (of our team) who got memberships - all the locals seem to be sick with the Ghey. Its Philadelphia - I mean what WAS I supposed to expect. I'll survive - listen to heavy metal and watch my six - literally.......

The gym at the college I go to usually has heavy metal and hard rock on. Doesn't bother me really.

If you can, get a used GenIII ipod off ebay. They're the best of the ipods IMO. A twenty gig can be had for under $120, and if you need to, you can send them off to multiple places to replace the battery for less than $50.

I have a 1st generation iPod and a shuffle. That shuffle is a godsend for working out. Its just so small and light, doesn't get in the way and you dont have to worry about reading any digital display, either arrange your playlist the way you want it when you upload it to the shuffle or switch it to random play and work out. The buttons are big enough that you dont have to look directly at it to use its functions, so you can continue what your doing without have to focus on the device.

Sorry to hear your problem. I guess "Rush's Greatest Hits" aren't played at the gym as much as they used to.

I'm sorry but some things get me-like if a site member says something deragatory towards me without provocation.

If my skin isn't thick enough for you then I'm sorry but that's your problem.

Two things you need to learn to survive here:

1. take everything with a grain of salt. This is the internet for crying out loud.

2. If something really does piss you off, don't get even. getting even is for panzies. Get up one. You want total ownage. If you can't obtain that, dont' even try. you'll make a bigger fool of yourself. admit defeat, and casually duck out.


The whiney stop picking on me stuff don't cut it.
