“Read” At The Gym With MP3 Audio Books From BooksOnBoard


Audio books, which have long been the mainstay of travelers, are carving out a new niche: at the gym. BooksOnBoard, the premier online bookshop, is offering discounts on popular sports and fitness titles in MP3 format.

“During a really vigorous workout, it’s difficult to keep that book or magazine steady,” according to BooksOnBoard CEO Bob LiVolsi. “Enter audio books: all the convenience and portability of eBooks, without the need to actually scan a page – no easy endeavor when you’re trying to run 6 miles per hour!”

DRM-free – a type of encryption used for AudioBooks – MP3s, which arrived at BooksOnBoard earlier this month, are easy to transfer to MP3 players such as iPods and iPhones. They require no additional conversion after download.

“I always listen to audio books while working out, since it’s easy to upload them to my iPod,” says Nathan Johnson, Director of Operations at BooksOnBoard. “I usually listen to MP3s about working out when I’m at the gym, although I sometimes listen to political audio books, which make me so angry I inevitably work out harder.”

Discounted titles include A Champion’s Mind by tennis star Pete Sampras, The Downhill Lie by Carl Hiaasen, Are You Ready! by Bob Harper, fitness coach on hit TV show The Biggest Loser, and Standing Tall by Coach Vivian Stringer. Other sports and fitness eBooks and audio books can be found at BooksOnBoard’s Sports Page:, and at the Health and Fitness Page:
