How Music Got Me to Stay in the Pool (with an Audioflood Waterproof iPod)

I’m not a swimmer, at least, I wasn’t. That said, I didn’t use to be a biker, either. What changed both of these things? Music.

I’m a music lover, and I haven’t gone a day my whole life without playing, singing, or listening to some music.

Also, in recent years I’ve become a big fan of podcasts. I fall asleep to a podcast almost every night, and I value them highly.

Biking plus music? Easy. I inherited a bike from my older brother, and I have a built-in MP3 player in my phone, so all it took was one try listening to music/podcasts while biking, and I was hooked. It seemed like I could go forever!

Then my knees started to hurt. Blast. My wife recommended swimming. Oh, dread. I couldn’t swim very well, and when you can’t swim very well, you won’t want to swim for very long … especially without music.

Enter AudioFlood. I got my hands on a Waterproof Apple iPod Shuffle by AudioFlood, and … what’s that? You don’t believe me?

Yes, a real iPod. Yes, made by Apple. Yes, it’s totally waterproof. And yes, of course, the headphones are waterproof, too.

Long story shortened: I feel like I can swim forever if I have some awesome tunes in my ears or an entertaining podcast.

Before AudioFlood, I think the most I’d ever swum was like 10-15 minutes. My very first try with the iPod? 50 minutes!

I’m serious, this thing changed the way I look at swimming and even exercise in general. Do yourself a favor, and take your swim for a music … or the other way around.
