Apple adds Nike Sport Music area to iTunes Music Store

Following yesterday’s Nike-ready iPod and iTunes software updates, Apple has added a new section to the iTunes Music Store with several offerings designed to enhance the Nike + iPod experience. The new top-level iTunes area, called “Nike Sport Music,” features Nike+ Workouts (continuous-play music mixes with voice-over coaching instructions), Nike video podcasts, Sport iMixes put together by iTunes customers, and Athlete Inspiration playlists featuring music picks from the likes of Lance Armstrong, Vince Carter, Ronaldo, Landon Donovan, and others. Also, as part of the launch of the Nike content, electronic group The Crystal Method created an exclusive 45-minute sport mix featuring original tracks and new remixes of their old songs.

A few years back, Mannheim Steamroller had a workout cassette / cd called the “Mahhheim Montivator.” It would work well for this too. I don’t recall if it is still available, but you could find the playlist on the net and get the tracks from the other cds. Now if they would only get the Fresh Aire series on the music store!

Seems to be the USA Store only at the moment…

I’ve been using the Podrunner podcast recently, which seems to work well enough (and is free)
