Happy Thursday to you! I hope your week is going well…I am definitely ready for the weekend! This has been a long week but I can say that I have enjoyed switching up my workout routine! I got two quality strength sessions in and mixed in plenty of cardio. This morning was no different. I was up bright and early for a 5:45 am Nike Training Club class at 24 Hour Fitness. I thought I would give you a quick review for anyone that is looking for a challenge from the same ol’ same workout. Nike Training Club will shock your body, help you get lean and toned, and it is an excellent compliment to running!
The class is intense and meant for you to keep moving. The instructors will take you through various strength and cardio drills, such as mountain climbers, planks, burpees, pushups, and plyometric movements. You will use free weights and a mat. There is active recovery in between each set so basically you keep moving the entire class. It is designed to bulid your endurance and strength, both of which are needed to perform like a true athlete.
I love that the instructors keep you moving through each drill and leave no time for rest breaks, keeping your heart rate up the entire time. Once we got started I was literally sweating in the first 5 minutes of the class. Now THAT’S what I call a workout!
I can definitely say that I was challenged today…and I am already looking forward to next week’s class! So happy that they are able to offer it so early in the morning.
If you are a member at 24 Hour Fitness I suggest you try NTC! It will challenge you and transform your body. I hear there is also an app on your smart phone so that you can do these workouts on your own. But I really love the benefits going to a class provides! It is really motivating having an instructor push you the entire way!
Tonight I plan on squeezing a run in with the Luke’s Locker crew. I am loving the Thursday Night Social Runs. Tonight Rock N Roll will be there to promote the upcoming Dallas Rock N Roll Half Marathon. Running with friends followed by a little fun on a work night, does it get any better than that?
Have you tried a Nike Training Club class? What other high intensity workouts do you enjoy?
