Sorry… I think I’ll stick to my usual music and excercise routine - walk around campus and keep my Subway diet going. It really does work if you keep things in moderation and walk at a fast pace.

Not really a new idea.  One of the first things I did when I got my iPod was rip the sound from my workout DVDs and listen to them on my iPod.  Anybody can do it.
