Day 44: February 13, 2011 {new workout}

I downloaded a new app for my phone called Nike Training Club. I did my first workout today. It lasted 30 minutes and it HURT. It really has been that long, huh?? I liked this app for quite a few reasons. It was only 30 minutes, I was able to do it inside, in fact, in my HALLWAY. I liked how every minute or so the activity changed. It gave me time to catch my breath but keep the intensity pretty high. If I didn't know how to do an activity, it gave me a video of how to do it. It paused the timer and I was able to watch the video and then go back to the workout. It also allowed me to use my iPod OR I could even have Pandora playing (which I did, with my 80s station rocking). The voice would count down, give some pointers on how to do the activity properly and even had a few words of encouragement. The warm up and cool down stretches were included in the 30 minutes. It tracks how long you work and you unlock different "awards" at different intervals. The app has different levels and different goals, "Get Lean," (the one I did today), "Get Toned," "Get Strong," or "Get Focused." From there, they have different routines you can choose from. The one I choose was Sweat+Shape. It was the first one.
Now, hopefully I can keep this up!
