Nike Training Club Releases App Update and first Serena Williams workout
March 15, 2013
New workouts straight from the pros are coming to the Nike Training Club (NTC) app. NTC debuts a new workout with tennis star Serena Williams. Serena’s Core Power workout features some of her favorite core-strengthening moves that have helped her stay at the top of women’s tennis for more than a decade. The 15-minute workout is perfect to tack on after a run, spin, cardio class or another NTC workout.
“Core is incredibly important to my tennis game,” says Williams. “Having a strong, stable core is key to many of the movements I have to make on the court, and the core in general is the foundation for a lot of my strength.”
In addition to Williams’s Core Power workout, new NTC workouts with gymnast Gabby Douglas, surfer Lakey Peterson and track & field star Carmelita Jeter will launch monthly throughout the spring. Each workout will be 15 minutes and target a specific body part, making it easier than ever for women to customize their fitness regimen.
“The great thing about Nike Training Club is that you can take it anywhere – it’s like having a personal trainer on your phone,” Williams says. “When I’m on the road and need a quick workout, I can do NTC in my hotel room; or if I feel like I need something extra after a training session, I can target a specific muscle group with the 15-minute workouts.”
New workouts from the world’s best athletes aren’t the only new addition to NTC. The app also released an update to improve the overall experience and performance. The latest version includes an approximate NikeFuel count and calories burned for every workout. The new metrics allow users to measure their activity level and gain better insight into their overall progress and performance.
