I don't actively do anything when I workout like watch tv or reading or anything like that. I listen to music but that's about it. I've heard of people watching tv while they workout before but I don't have any equipment near my tv and I think watching tv would distract me and keep me from getting a good workout.

Usually just listen to music. We did put the extra TV in front of the treadmill, but it's not hooked up. Maybe once I'm using more in the cold weather DH will hook it up. Mainly because I'm always forgetting to charge my ipod lol.

Sometimes I listen to music, and sometimes I don't. Kinda depends. In the winter when I run on the TM I will nearly always watch netflix on the tablet. Using a treadmill without some kind of distraction is really difficult for me.

When I'm on the treadmill I usually try to find something to watch or I'll play on my phone/tablet, but when I do anything else I usually just listen to music.

I will watch tv when I get on my treadmill. It seems to make the time pass quickly.

Most of my other workouts that I do are on DVD and they already have their own music.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

I listen to music and if an intense football or hockey game is on the tv during my walk/run on the treadmill I'll watch that!

I usually just listen to music but my gym just got free WiFi so I might start watching Netflix instead.
