There are thousands of fitness apps and it can be difficult to sift through the ones that claim they’re the best. Some of these apps are good for beginner athletes, some target intermediates, and some are designed specifically for experts. If you’re any of the above and are looking for an app to rejuvenate your gym routine, pinpoint a certain body part, or create a workout program, Nike+ Training Club is the answer.
This app categorizes workouts so the user can filter them by beginner, intermediate, regular trainer, and pro. The user can then search through workouts that range from 15 minutes to an hour. Certain workouts target areas of the body like abs, legs, and arms, so you can pick the workout that suits you best. It also lets you choose a goal of either getting lean, toned, strong, or focused (shorter workouts for specific body areas). Within these goals are several different workouts that will get you the results you want.
Another section of the app lets you start a 4-week program oriented toward getting lean, toned, or strong. It gives you the option of incorporating running into your routine, which is a good option for those who crave weekly cardio. Once you choose a 4-week program, the app tells you what each day and week will look like, as well as how much time the workouts take.
Each workout in Nike+ Training Club lists the different moves and exercises incorporated in the routine, so the user knows ahead of time the order of exercises. If you’re an exercise newbie, have no fear! When selecting the exercise, the app will explain how to perform each move. This way, the user broadens their knowledge of gym exercises. You can even watch a video to see exactly how they’re done. The user can also customize the workout routine if they want to replace certain moves with others.
One of the best features of the app is the workout of the week, so you’ll never get bored of the same routines. Nike+ Training Club even lets you “shop the look” of the various outfits featured in the app. Included in the app is a sports feed with featured exercises, playlists, and recipes.
Nike+ Training Club is great for a beginner athlete who needs instruction, an intermediate athlete who needs direction or guidance, and an expert who wants inspiration and variance. And the best part about it? It’s free!
