The App to Change Your Life : N+TC (Nike Training Club)

Whether you’re a beginner or an advanced fitness enthusiast, Nike has an app that friends are beyond obsessed with including myself. Nike Training Club (N+TC) is an amazing app that’s filled with hundreds of workouts for every fitness levelNike+TC and schedule. Whether you have 15 minutes or 45 minutes, there are workout routines that can fit into anyone’s schedule.

Because my schedule fluctuates daily, I don’t have much time to commit to a full workout plan but this app is perfect for me because it feels like I have my own personal trainer without paying the trainer price tag. I have the ability to finish 15 minutes of cardio, abdominals, arms, glutes, thighs and multiple muscle groups and left with nothing but sweat running down my body.  Nike does not play games!

After you download the app, you are able to select a workout based on your goal and fitness activity. The following options being: GET LEAN, GET TONED, GET STRONG, GET FOCUSED. From there you are taken to a menu with a ton of different workouts geared towards the goal you selected. One of the apps coolest features is that there is audio instruction and videos showing you execution of each move if you are unsure what each movement means. If you don’t have a kick ass audio play-list for your workout [you need to get one], you can always listen to your favorite Pandora station and still hear the interactive trainer as well. How cool is that?

My favorite perk is that it tracks your progress! and you can train any and everywhere like a pro. Every workout is calculated by the minutes and as the minutes add up you get rewards or fuel points!!! So set goals and make them. Just do it and get moving!

Chronicles of Traveling

As much as I thought I would be able to stay committed to the 21 day health challenge my thoughts were incorrect. 

I was dedicated and saw results within the first two weeks.  It kept me motivated until I got to my first destination. Since having to drive daily and not being able to have a kitchen to cook in, my food supply ran out. 

However, I did make good choices without eating out. I ate boring salads except the day we went to Golden corral to eat dinner and I indulged in two rolls. There’s just no way to go to Golden corral and not eat one roll.

I have to say that my smoothies came in handy! They kept me afloat and it allowed me to make overall healthy choices. 

  

I also worked out a bit. From Kileen to Dallas. I rode the stationary bike outdoors which had me in sweats. From weight training to running, my overall vacation was steady but bit as hard as I usually push myself. 

  

Dallas was filled with family laughter, visiting friends, driving and fun. Some visitations turned into work and some relaxation time turned into funny moments.  

Then this came from my visit with powerhouse executive from Front House Management PR, Karen Michelle.  

 

I figured, if I couldn’t stick with my 21 Day Health challenge while on vacation, 

  then I would at least focus in working out. So I tagged along with a friend for Camp Gladiator (CG). The warm up was intense but the moves were gladiator esq. there was a woman who had a 3 week old and was ahead of everyone. I was in awe of her but The dedication and commitment she had to keep going amazed me. She’s definitely a fitness gladiator and epitomizes the slogan of Go Hard, You are strong.

For all the inner gladiators, go hard, go strong, and keep moving. Don’t let doubts hinder you from achieving goals. 

  

And then there was brunch.  

 Effortless girl talk with Karen Michelle and Vanna Collins made the experience easy breezy. Factory Glam and LADASKA MECHELLE  gave away some things and people loved it. 

   

   

The fashion presentation was two thumbs up with pieces from my collection and jewelry from Trudi Bell. 

   

       

Family and friends enjoyed brunch from Jorge’s Tex Mex Cafe’ at One Arts Plaza in Dallas. The waterfall was streaming, the sun was shining and good people came together to support.

   

       

And it ended with Willie Johnson keeping his word to show his support and Karen and I doing an interview for her podcast on The O TV. Thank you to everyone that came out before we left.
