Attention gym rats: chugging it out on the treadmill every day may be good for your weekly mileage goals, but taking your workout outdoors will bust you out of plateaus and clear your mind of the Winter blues. If like me, you need some tunes to help you through a sweat session, grab your iPod and one of these cases to keep you going in the great outdoors.
Taking a walk around the Macworld Expo is like walking into a massive Apple store. Minus the computers, of course. One booth that caught my eye was Bone Collection, which was stocked with iPod and iPhone armbands, skins, and protectors. First up: the armbands. Not only are the Bone armbands made from a tough, rubbery material to protect your gadget from accidental drops, but its strap is silky smooth and comes with ventilation holes so you don't sweat the band off your arm. The best part is the bands are thin, so you don't have to worry about a bulky band banging against your arm while you work it out.
Bone also features some sweet silicone skins that come with an attached cord manager, so you can rock out on the move and keep tabs on your earbuds when you're done (instead of losing them to the depths of your bag). Add in some tiny (but fashionable) silicone iPod Shuffle sleeves, a cute cord manager in the shape of a bone, and you have a one-stop shop for all your iPod (or iPhone!) needs.

Wow, I'm impressed with Karolina Kurkova's ability to make her iPod look so fashionable!
Karolina was out and about in Manhattan the other day displaying how geek chic iPod armbands really are. Yes, they can be incorporated into all wardrobes and are not only for working out and trips to the gym - that is assuming you are as cute and chic as Karolina.
Want to get an armband similar to Karolina's? Check out this iPod Armband Protector by Macally. This armband keeps your iPod mini in place with an adjustable strap to fit everyone. There is also a headphone jack opening on top, and storage pocket for earbuds when not in use. Priced at $15.
