I recently got an iPhone and have fallen in love with a certain app that has helped me get out of my fitness funk and challenge myself.
It is no secret that doing strength exercises is not my favorite thing to do. In fact, I would much rather run: long, hard, and far than do a strength workout. I am proud to say, that with my friend Janice’s prompting, I am now an avid strength worker-outer!
She introduced me to the iPhone app: Nike Training Club. It is FREE! (score!!) and I can do it at home while my kiddos are running amuck around me (double bonus).
I do not own any special high-tech fitness gear: no treadmill, no weight equipment, no gym membership. This app is perfect for me to do in my garage or drive way (heck even in the back yard) while the boys play near me. All I need is my a set of hand weights and a medicine ball (optional – I use hand weights – or my 18 month old!).
Any workout that I can bust out at home while multi-tasking being a Mom and getting fit/healthy is MUST for me!
The Nike Training Club is a full-body training app designed for you to make yourself whatever you want to be. Whether you’re looking to get lean, toned or strong, NTC takes every workout to the next level.
Inspired by world-class athletes and developed by a Nike professional trainer, each one of the 90+ drills builds on the fundamentals of strength, cardio, interval and core training. Together, they create workouts that continually challenge your body and maximize your results.
The great thing about this is that you can go at your own pace: challenging yourself and doing YOUR own PERSONAL best.
I am never bored and love how the circuits are fun, quick, and fast paced.
This is very Mom friendly as I am able to do this at home, while watching my children, and I am not glued to the TV or Wii for my next move. I am free to move and roam where ever my iPhone goes. My boys LOVE imitating me as I do each circuit!
Heck, I love doing my NTC workouts WITH my boys… working out together is always better! If you have an iPhone or iPod Touch and are looking for a new fitness challenge, I highly recommend you check out this fantastic FREE app!
A family that works out together stays HEALTHY together!
