Let's be honest, outdoor workouts are tough to do in this frigid weather! I spent the summer going to NTC classes at Nike Town. They have faithfully continued offering their Monday 6:30pm class on the roof top, which is great if it's 35-40 degrees. 20 degrees? Now that's a tough sell. Thankfully, Nike has expanded its class offerings with a new night and new location:
What: Nike Training Club with trainer Will Arrufat
Where: UES Nike Running Store 1131 3rd Ave. New York, NY (3rd Ave. between 66th & 67th St.)
When: Thursday Nights at 7:30pm
Contact: Follow the UES Nike+ Run Club Facebook page or on Twitter @NikeNYC
What is the workout like? This is a fast paced, cardio/plyo type workout which utilizes your own body weight during a challenging workout. You can go at your own pace, but be prepared to get some serious pep from Will and other Nike team members who love to rally you to push harder! They also offer women's shoe trials and Nike Fuelband trials.They close the store and clear space for the class, so you don't have to worry about shoppers gawking at your amazing squat form! Best of all? It's free! So, a great trainer, challenging workout, the latest cross training shoe to try out, and it's free? What's not to love!
Verdict: YOU SHOULD TRY THIS WORKOUT! The class creates a great sense of community, especially when you pair it with a Nike running club (offered at the UES, Midtown and Flatiron stores). I saw great results this summer by combining NTC classes with running, so check it out!
How about you? Have you tried Nike Training Club? Do you have a favorite winter workout class that keeps you moving? What is your favorite cupcake flavor? (I'm in the mood for one...) TELL ME ABOUT IT!
