>Nike is amazing. iPads are awesome.
No, I’m not a Nike shoe wearer. I’m an Asics girl for my narrow feet and high arches.
But I’m officially a big bad Nike fan because this FREE Nike Training Club App is the monneeeey.
|work me out, Nike!|
Anyone with an iPhone, iTouch, or iPad can download this baby, and unlike other decent training apps, you don’t pay a cent for each workout or the app itself.
I was feelin’ a home workout for my snow day and got pretty psyched when I remembered I still had this baby to try out.
So, after some of this…
|bottoms up, bottoms up (up!), lemme see ya cup… got a couple bottles….|
Chloe got corralled in the kitchen…
And I threw these babies on for a sweat session in front of my iPad.
|I’ve missed you guys.|
I bought my Reebok Easytones for work when I was in restaurant management for a summer before I got my “real” job. They were perfect for standing and walking around a restaurant all day, and I felt like I was tonin’ while I worked (cue the 7 dwarf music).
Perhaps it had something to do with the extra nachos and restaurant food I was constantly chowing down on that added some extra curve-age to my frame, but trust me, these babies work.
Once I was all set up, I selected my workout. I chose “get toned” for a full body workout (next, I want to try “get focused” so I can just do arms and save the hard legwork for running days).

I hit up “SUPER FUSION,” a 45 minute strength workout.
|each workout gives you a preview of the circuits you’ll be completing|
|AND you can play your music while you work out!|
My favorite part was the fact that I could select any album or playlist from my iTunes library. If anyone’s looking for some new workout music, I highly recommend The Ready Set (their debut single, Love Like Woe, was the opening of my vlog).
I really liked the fast pace of this circuit workout. I used my dumb bells for almost every move, but you can adapt any move to use no weight. Also, you can view a quick 10 second video of each move if you’re not sure what you’re doing.
|can we all have a laugh at my attempt at taking dead lift instructional shots?|
I’ve gotta work on the whole documenting my workout thing…
but I have a feeling I’ll be using the Nike Training Club a whole lot for weight days!
FORTUNATELY, Anastasia and I will be running the Virginia is for Lovers 14k tomorrow (because hello? I love her) along with Jamie, and we hope to snap some great pictures pre- and post-race. I’m excited!
