The benefits of the Nike Training Club app are well established. It’s one of the smartest training tools available with more than 180 free workouts — from strength and endurance to mobility and yoga featuring the expertise of world-class Nike Master Trainers and elite Nike athletes.
For all its positive attributes, there is one thing about the app athletes wanted to improve: Sometimes, you just don’t want to have to continually refer to a phone in the midst of a session.
The solution came in bringing the Nike Training Club app to the Apple Watch. “The resounding feedback from athletes worldwide was that they wanted us to put the best training app onto Apple Watch, and I think we’ve done it in a way that will make it an intuitive and invaluable training tool,” says Mike McCabe, Nike’s VP of Category Digital Product Innovation.
What’s to be expected? A Nike Training Club workout is started on the phone and then the Apple Watch allows for easy check of time or reps remaining on a drill. It also delivers haptic prompts, which signal the beginning of the next drill and run until the workout is complete.
Here’s how it helps you:
- Focus more on your workout and less on your phone
- Monitor your heart rate, approximate calories and other exercise statistics right from your wrist
- Achieve your exercise goals via weekly notifications encouraging you to close your Exercise ring
The Nike Training Club (NTC) app is available globally on the Apple Watch as of July 25. All 180+ workouts currently available on the NTC app will be supported by the Apple Watch.
