Great thread, I purchased a PaceMaster ProElite last week. Shaved 20 minutes off the commute to the gym and can now watch DVDs while I run. I have to turn the volume way up to cover the sound of my running.
I will be getting on the thing in the next few hours. Hmmm... what do you watch when your on there? I have been doing episodes of TV series, but have been thinking about listening to a commentary or watching a documentary. I hardly ever get to these so this may be the best time to do it.
I sometimes get on the treadmill and watch DVDs. If the weather's nice, I prefer running outside, but if feel like jogging at night or when it's raining out it's great to get on the treadmill and watch a movie. The only problem is I'm higher up than the TV so the picture doesn't look so great (projection TV). It's still way better than staring at the wall though.
Yep, my workout routine fits nicely into a 45-50 min TV eps (Twilight Zone, Outer Limits being the main ones).

No as I don't own one. My preferred postion for watching DVDs is on the couch with shoes/shirt off, in boxer shorts with a beer in my left hand and the remote control in my right. That is unless I have company...
I work 10 to 15 hour days...on my feet. I'm a human treadmill and have little time to spend walking/running in place. my job is better than any gym membership. wish I had that kind of time to kill, or that kind of energy to spend after working. I'll sit on my massage chair and watch, thanks.

Hmmmm...interesting responses. I guess the reason I asked is because a while ago I started listening to commentaries on my portable dvd player via heaphones (no video) while walking outside. I was amazed at how much it helped pass the time. Recently, I decided to take it a step further and put my treadmill in front of the t.v. to listen to and watch dvd's. Sounds like TV on dvd or commentaries is the way to go. Thanks for the suggestions.
Maybe I would, but I work out at a gym. So I just listen to my MP3 player and watch the TVs in the gym (with closed captioning) while I do my cardio.

I only ask because in our current situation, well, it could prove to be useful information, MAYBE!
