At the local Y, there is a computer system called FitLinxx and I can record my workouts when I go there. You get points per workout as well. I’m a bit competitive, so I’m really hoping to see my name up there as a gym rat. Also, points add up to prizes. I’m personally looking forward to the day when I get the "I lifted 1,000,000 lbs." shirt. 🙂

I have a Nike+ too!! It’s so much fun, I use it to track my neighborhood walks. Like White Wedding Girl said, you definitely don’t need Nike shoes to use this (I bought a little pouch for it that you weave into your shoelaces; works great). The only downside I’ve found is that it’s not as accurate on treadmills.. it has something to do with the fact that both feet are in perpetual motion on a treadmill, which isn’t the case when walking/running on solid ground.

I noticed that too miss techie, I love the Nike + but when I use it on the treadmill it reads that I run half the distance that what the treadmill saids.  I was wondering if the treadmill was wrong or if it was the Nike +.  The weather has been bad here so I haven’t had a chance to use it outside.

It’s not a web site or a gadget, but the most motivating thing for me is keeping track of how many days in a row I can go to the gym. For example, my record is 12 days in a row. The closest I have ever come to beating that is 10. If I’m on day 5, knowing that I would have to start over at day 1 if I skip really motivates me.

I’m glad to read that you all love the Nike +. I’ve been thinking about trying it.
