Bored on the Treadmill, Indoor Bike Trainer, Exercise Bike, Elliptical, or Rowing Machine? Get a Chromecast!

  If you’re like me you might become bored to death of running on the treadmill, indoor bike trainer, exercise bike, rowing machine, and elliptical. I especially find myself not able to finish very many miles on the treadmill (a Sole F63 – review here) during the indoor months – …
