Taking it outside...

Recently i have had no motivation to go to the gym! It's full of sweaty BO ridden people running really loudly on running machines which in the summer when the sun is shinning doesn't really appeal to me, even the swimming pool seems to be packed full of kids jumping in and out like complete idiots!! I really enjoy being outside, not only is the cool breeze a nice change but i feel like it just makes you so much more happy!

Last night me and Jess decided to go for a run around Tilgate Park! It has flat paths, some steep inclines and declines and lots of steps you can exercise on! We got about half way round and decided to try out my new app 'Nike Training Club' and we were defiantly not disappointed.. This is a fitness work out app which even includes work outs from professionals such as Maria Sharapova and Julia Mancuso.

When the app opens you click  'Get Workout'  and then choose between a list of 4 options.. these include 'Get Lean', 'Get Toned', 'Get Strong'  & 'Get Focused' we decided to select get lean which includes high interval cardio drills.. And then all you have to do is press download and you are ready to get your sweat on.. It's as easy as that!


Our workout was called 'Fighter Fit' and was a 30 minute workout which included back pedals, lunges, squats, planks, burpees and more! This particular app links up to your music library and is so easy to use! It tell you when to switch sides, when to rest and even includes a few motivational speech'ss (which are hilarious!) Even if you feel like giving up because you don't no the moves, don't fear.. all you have to do is click on the picture and it will bring up a video demonstrating the full move! 

The app counts calories burned and turns them into Nike fuel points which add up on your homepage. Once you have reached certain mile stones it unlocks further workouts for you!

I would 100% suggest this to anyone who doesn't have the time to go the gym or simply just can't afford it! You can pick between 15, 30 and 45 minute work outs! So you have no excuse! It's not just cardio either it has yoga, pilates and weight training! Oh and i forgot to mention.. It's completely FREE!
