Message:  In regards to running on yom tov, I find it diffcult to run without music. Can my maid turn on my ipod? Would turning the volume up and down be the same like a light dimmer? Is that ochel nefesh?

thanx so much

Reply:  I assume you mean running because you enjoy it or on the Second day Yom Tov. Your heading of treadmill hints to using the treadmill to run on. That would not be okay. But any type of excersize that a person does on Shabbat or Yom Tov is allowed, as long as they enjoy doing it. On the Second day it is okay because it is only assur because of medicine, which is muttar on the Second day
