I like apps. I like them even better when they are useful to me. And cheap.
The latest find (by the boy, not me) is the Nike Training app. For
a minimal amount free, you can get more than 85 custom-built workouts that range from full body routines to targeted areas. Workouts vary from 15 to 45 minutes, depending on your choice.
Each workout is designed by combining different drills that are carried out for a certain number of seconds or minutes. They are often repeated during the routine, much like reps.
The only equipment you’ll need are a medicine ball and some dumbells (5-25#). And maybe a mat if you don’t want to sweat on the carpet or hardwood.
You can even set your workout to any album or playlist from your music library.
For those who are extrinsically motivated, workout rewards are offered, mainly for social networking bragging rights.
While it’s rumored that this app is specifically designed for women, the only proof of this is in the women-dominating tutorials. Both men and women alike have reviewed this app to the hilt, with 4.5 out of 5 stars. Not bad. Go get it. Go.
