For years I took to the streets and trails and ran.  The pressure of constant pounding does take its toll so I started with a treadmill but still did not like the pounding.  I bought a Nordick Track and literally wore it out.  I like working out on an elliptical machine. I do vary my speed and intensity as I feel interval training really builds you up.

I suggest getting a series of upbeat playlists for your nanos et al. while exercising. Here is my main Workout playlist when I am doing a fast & furious bit on the elliptical: Let's Get This Party Started, Born to Run, Flashdance, Gonna Fly Now, Winner Takes it All, Stayin Alive, Let's Get Physical, We Are The Champions, I Believe I Can Fly, Born to Be Wild, Eye of the Tiger, Chariots of Fire, Pipeline, Wipeout, Take My Breath Away
