Encouragement for millions of runners and tips from experts. We'll help you to reach your goals and have fun whilst you're at it.
How does it work?
Whether you're a man or woman, you run around London or New York, or you prefer working out during the day or at nighttime, if running is your usual physical activity, it's recommendable to wear a smart band to control your efforts and register your workouts. And that's where this application comes in, where you can choose between four different kinds of exercises:
- Basic running.
- Running by distance.
- Running by time.
- Running by speed.
With the appropriate equipment, you'll manage to monitor your pace, location, distance, gradient, heartbeat, and partial distances. Whilst you meat your targets and goals, Nike+ Run Club will encourage you with motivational phrases to make sure you keep your spirits high and you can reach your final objective. You'll have to carry your phone around with you whilst you run but it has the advantage that the GPS will draw your route on a map so you can see it once you finish your training.
The tool also comes along with a personal trainer, Nike Coach. You can choose between three programs:
- Start. For beginners, with a four-week program.
- Shape up. Eight weeks of suffering if you're already an amateur athlete.
- Ready for the race. Perfect for pros.
Set your target and your fitness level and the program will adapt to you, your schedules and your progress. You're definitely running out of excuses for not practicing sport, aren't you?
Customized workout programs that adapt to your timetables and evolution.
Nike+ Run Club can be synchronized with your Samsung Gear smartwatch and connected to Spotify so you can listen to motivational music whilst you suffer and sweat it all out. If you're a runner or you want to be one, you might find it useful to get hold of this APK and give this tool a try.
