    I don't want to keep bringing my Iphone in while working out. I'm considering picking up a new MP3 player. I also wanted one that had an FM tuner so that I can listen to the TV that are playing at the gym.

    None of the Ipods have tuners, correct?
    If they don't, what's a better option to go with then?

    +1 for the Nano. Or if you don't have 179 go for the shuffle like I did. But the nano is really cool.

    I've always recommended Shuffles for working out, but the new Nano is a viable option as well due to its small size. If I were you, I'd head to the Apple store and check them all out.

    The iPod shuffle's clip has always made it the perfect workout iPod in my eyes; if you're interested in having an FM tuner, the new iPod nano would be perfect.

    To be honest, I wasn't thrilled with the latest generation nano (I preferred the former design), but the new nano is perfect for the gym, without a doubt.

    I use the new Nano with Apple remote headphones.

    Need to get new headphones as the Apple ones aren't ideal for running but the Nano is perfect.

    For the gym, I would buy a iPod with a clickwheel so I could adjust the music without looking. too bad they killed that with the new nano

    I've been using a new iPod nano for workouts and runs. I use my UE iPhone headphones, which has a button to control play/pause/ffwd/rew. That way I don't have to use the touchscreen unless I really need to.

    The perfect combo for me during exercise.....

    I use the old iPod Shuffle, works a charm but the new nano seems perfect for gym work, especially if you want a tuner!
