iPhone, It Was Born To Run

  When you pick up your iPhone 2.0 in a few weeks, the first place you may want to take it to is the gym.  That’s what Engadget is predicting anyway. According to a press release from 24 Hour Fitness yesterday stated, "Nike and Apple worked with major gym equipment manufacturers to make their cardio equipment Nike + iPod compatible so gym members can easily track and record workouts on cardio equipment like treadmills, stair steppers, elliptical trainers and stationary bikes."  The gym giant will be the first to do so, however only selected gyms in its system will offer Nike + enabled equipment beginning in July.  The press release only mentions the iPod nano, however Nike has made it clear that Nike+ would eventually be available for the iPhone and iPod Touch.  Engadget muses that with new iPhone on its way and the App Store about to launch (not to mention the patent application that included this graphic), July just might be your month to start that exercise program that you resolved to do back in January.
