Make Yourself…

Recently I was asked to document a few Women’s Nike Training Clubs at local universities…

The Nike Training Club workout is a free 6 week long fitness course that offers 60 minute full body, high intensity interval trainings that are designed to get you lean, toned and strong. Participating will not only get you fit, but also give you the opportunity to get a free Nike women’s tank top (if a women’s tank is not good for you, maybe re-gift to a friend) and put you in the running for $500. (Description from the UC Berkeley website.)

I didn’t get a free tank top, but I did get inspired by watching so many young women working hard to make themselves strong and healthy. And funny enough…  all the up and downs that I tried to keep up with throughout the one hour workout meant that I came away with sore legs too. Yikes. I guess I need a Nike Training Club to start in Petaluma… but that is wishful thinking. I don’t believe Petaluma is high on Nike’s radar. So I guess I will have to settle for the free workout app instead.
