Today’s shout out: Nike Training Club app for iPhone.
When I started this whole weight loss thing, a friend of mine mentioned the “Nike Trainer” on Facebook. You guys this app is so cool.
It has all these awesome workouts planned for you, targeting different things – getting toned, slimming down, focusing on certain muscle groups, etc. Each workout has a bunch of different exercises that you do from 30 seconds – 2 minutes each.
There are short little videos that show you how to do them as well. And if the app itself isn’t enough motivation, the women in those videos should be. They are so friggin’ toned and mega hot – it’s ridiculous.
So last night, at a very empty 24 Hour Fitness, I did the “Ab Burner” (as seen above). Coincidentally, I felt as though my abs were going to BURN OFF. A very pleasant, yet somewhat stern, trainer lady voices over the music each time the exercise changes to tell you what’s coming up, and what to work on while you’re doing it. She’s all “Keep your back flat, even through the lower portion, and make sure to twist your whole shoulder girdle, not just move back and forth” and I’m all “HOLY BALLS THIS HURTS WHAT THE HELL IS A SHOULDER GIRDLE”.
It’s totally awesome. I mean, there is an exercise called “Crazy Ivans”. Does it get any better than that? And why is Ivan so crazy?
