Nike and Apple are working with major gym equipment manufacturers such as Life Fitness, Precor, Star Trac and Technogym to make their cardio equipment Nike + iPod compatible so health club members can easily track workouts on cardio equipment like treadmills, ellipticals, stationary bikes and stair climbers. Nike + iPod users will simply plug in their iPod nano into the equipment at the start of their workout to automatically record their progress. Users can then connect their iPod with their computer to upload the workout to www.nikeplus.com.

"The Nike + iPod experience revolutionized running. Now we’re revolutionizing the gym cardio experience,” said Trevor Edwards, Nike’s Vice President of Global Brand and Category Management. “We’re enabling people who go to the gym an opportunity to set goals, track progress, and compete in challenges with their friends and with other members of www.nikeplus.com. It’s a groundbreaking tool for people who want to maximize their workouts.”

"The iPod is an essential part of millions of people's workouts and now users can easily set goals and track their progress with Nike + iPod,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple's vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing for iPod. "We're excited to be working with Nike and leading equipment manufacturers to bring the Nike + iPod experience to the gym."

At participating gyms, including 24 Hour Fitness nationwide and Virgin Active Health Clubs internationally, members will soon be able to use Nike + iPod to track their workout and log their data on www.nikeplus.com.

hmm, making the ipod compactible with the common cardio machines is sure a good thing but i wish they would make the nike exercising system working with the iPhone instead. for runners like me it would simplify things in carrying just one insted of two gadgets.
