I started the program last week and let me tell you that I LOVE it! I actually wish that I had discovered this app a bit sooner as it was something I needed since I had been needing to get new moves in my routine. It's always great to incorporate new moves as you want your muscles to be challenged in new ways in order to get results. There are four programs in the app that you can choose from:
- Get Lean: High interval, cardio drills to slim down
- Get Toned: Light weights and intervals to add definition
- Get Strong: Increased weights and reps to build strength
- Get Focused: 15 minute workouts to target specific areas
Within each program, you get to choose Beginner, Intermediate or Advanced. And then within those, there are several workouts to choose from that last around 30-45 minutes. You choose which workout you want and it will show you each move that you will be doing and for how long. The awesome part is that you can select any of the moves and they have photos to show you step by step, how to do each one.
Once you've selected the one you want to go with, you hit "Do Workout" and guess what? A voice comes on and it's like your own personal trainer telling you what moves to do, how long to do it, how much time you have remaining for each move and even gives you encouragement! And if you forget how to do a move, all you do is hit the "play" button and a video comes out showing you exactly how to do it! Seriously, it is so awesome! After you are done, it tracks your workouts to show you what you've done and how many minutes you've completed total.
I've been using the app for the first part of my workout and then finishing the last half with cardio (usually running) so I still get about an hour or longer workout. If you don't have an hour to spare, the 30 minute workouts that the app puts together are definitely good enough for a great workout.
I would love it if some of you joined me in downloading and using the Nike Training Club app and we all got toned and lean together! (Feel free to choose which program works best for you!) Each week I'll be posting my progress and I'd love to have you guys telling me about your progress as well and all of us supporting and encouraging each other! And as an incentive (like getting healthy and fit wasn't already enough!) you will have a chance to win lots of great Nike gear and other awesome prizes! Come back next week to find out how to enter the Nike Training Club Sweepstakes!
