Never Miss a Workout with Nike Training Club

Thanks to Nike’s workout app, you can take your fitness routine with you wherever your Chanel sneakers take you.

I’m probably on a plane at least once a month, which means my regular workout routine goes out the window the second I wheel my suitcase out the door. Thankfully, Nike heard the cry of the frequent travelista and created the closest thing to working out with a trainer without actually working out with a trainer: the N+TC Nike Training Club app.

I first learned about N+TC when I participated in the SHAPE Summer Beach Tour a few years back. Celebrity trainer Jeanette Jenkins, who was teaching beachside fitness classes in Hermosa Beach, Calif., told participants about a new app she was designing workouts for that would allow anyone, anywhere the convenience of a one-on-one workout with first-class fitness professionals. Not one to shy away from trying any new fitness must-do, I downloaded free (yep, it’s free!) app the minute Jeanette’s butt-kicking workouts ended.

During my next trip, I tested N+TC. I set Pandora to my go-to workout station, and after choosing from more than 100 workouts on the app, I selected the 45-minute “Transformer” workout to condition shoulders, arms, legs, and pretty much every other part of the body. A trainer walked me through the entire workout so I didn’t need to stop to read what move came next. The trainer even motivated me to get through each drill and gave me a countdown of how much time was left in each series.

I’m actually writing this post shortly after I finished a workout using N+TC. In a few minutes, I’ll probably collapse from exhaustion because this app truly does serve as a personal trainer on the go. I guess that’s what happens when you follow workouts created by celebrity trainers and Olympic athletes.
