    You could always just use your imagination. Do we always have to be entertained??

    Wouldn't that be called trainertainment?

    Truly, believe me!

    I find that workout tapes/dvd's are excellent in doing two things:

    1. They really give me a much more varied workout than I can get on my own.

    2. The time flies by because you vary the routine so much.

    I use spinervals.com, but there are other tapes that people enjoy also.

    Give it a try!

    thanks guys for the great ideas, I love the sound of PS2 but do you guys find it is hard to play videogames and ride at the same time?
