Podcast or mp3 workouts?

I just got an iPod for the first time and want to find audio recordings of workouts online I can download to it. Does anyone have any suggestions?
I'm particularly interested in:
* yoga (particularly power yoga)
* elliptical workouts
* weight training (I have my own weights)

Thanks for any suggestions!

I have used iTrain in the past. They have many different types of workouts. I think they cost 99 cents per workout, or you can buy a monthly pass.

I use the Cardio Coach workouts, and you can get them on CD or just download the MP3. They are more expensive than others, but totally worth it in my opinion. I have Volumes 1, 2, and 6 and of those Volume 6 (with Coach Shawn, not Candace) is definitely my favorite. I use them on the treadmill, but they can be used on any cardio equipment.

Workout music

Don't know if you need the workout instructions over the music or not, but if you just want some good instrumental music try podrunner. The DJ has several selections, puts out a free podcast every week and the music varies in speed. I use it mainly for my runs but I can see jamming to it during my gym sessions. Also, it's conveniently 1 hr long.

I am a huge cardio coach fan!! (But not a shill)

I don't work for CC in any way.

Volume 6 with Candace got me into hiking shape. I have always been in reasonably good shape, but doing CC vol 6 with Candace (there's one with Sean, too, which is why I make the distinction) got me in GREAT cardio vascular shape to th epoint that I kept up with my trekker brother (granted, he's 7 yrs older than me, and now, pushing 50, but still!!!) up mount monadnock in NH. It's a rough uphill climb and I hardly felt tired at all.

Volume 5 is also great. GREAT music and sprints.

Vol 2 revised is pretty neat, but it's easier than 5 and 6, and shorter.

Itrains are good, but I *LOVE* cardio coach. I have them all - CCs an dItrains so I can mix it up.

Workouts for iPod

iTunes has several free yoga podcasts to download (some are video only, though). I've also looked in to iTrain but you have to buy those.
