You can also use a book rest as an Apple iPad holder for treadmill or other exercise machine, and you can watch movies or whatever else takes your fancy too!

A great way to make your workout fly by, this rigid polycarbonate desk attachment allows you to add a simple laptop shelf to your treadmill, elliptical or exercise bike. Ideal for laptops, netbooks, portable DVD players, iPad or just plain books and magazines, this nifty little fitness machine laptop rack accessory allows you to watch movies, catch up on email, browse youtube or whatever else you do online all while you work out and get in shape.


 Most reading racks for treadmill etc. slide over the console and are made from some form of clear plastic so you can still read the console readings when you do not have a book or other form of entertainment sitting on it. These are very easy to attach and remove which makes them ideal attachments for folding elliptical machines and other forms of home exercisers which will be moved around a lot. They're also great for taking along to the local gym if you find their book holding racks inadequate. Others require some kind of permament attachment which is best for machines which are rarely moved. You may also be able to find an adjustable book holder which clamps on to the frame of your machine and can swivel around or adjust up and down to the most comfortable position for yourself.
