I love my NTC. This isn’t news – I talk about the NTC app, my precious, here and on Instagram often. But, so far my NTC experience has been with the app exclusively. Until last night!
Just yesterday Nike opened a Nike Women’s store and fitness studio in Fashion Island. They celebrated with an NTC Live workout and I was lucky enough to join in the fun. Before starting our workout, the NTC crew set us up with water bottles, tanks and trial training shoes. I grabbed a locker, laced up a pair of Nike Zoom Fit Agility Trainers, threw my tank on and bangs back.
Joselynne Boschen, one of Nike’s Master Trainers, led 20 of us in an hour long workout that included a mix of moves that made the heart race, muscles scream and sweat flow. Her energy and instruction were awesome and it was fun to workout with her live since I’m already a fan of her workouts on the NTC app. Her passion for fitness and women finding confidence in themselves and camaraderie with others is clear. I felt very fortunate to workout with her… and may have slapped her high fives throughout the hour. What can I say? I love people who inspire!
The workout wrapped up and we toweled off with, wait for it, chilled eucalyptus towels (God’s gift to sweaty women everywhere). We fueled up with Quest Bars, Nekter Juices and adorable Nike+ Macaroons while swapping stories of recent workout victories, a few gals were finishers of the Nike Women’s Marathon, and getting to know each other. I said my goodbye’s, grabbed my new gear, and salivated over the apparel, footwear and accessories as I made my way out of the store. It was an awesome evening.
So, who wants to join in the fun? There are group training opportunities every day of the week at the Nike Women’s store in Fashion Island. Nike Training Club+ Live meets on Monday at 6:37pm, Nike+ Run Club meets Saturdays at 9:04am and Yoga is on Thursdays at 6:37pm. Additionally, the studio is available for open gym Monday – Sunday from 11am – 4pm. During Open Gym, the studio is available for 1 hour sessions where athletes (that’s you) workout with the NTC app on the big screen and use the available NTC equipment.

I’m already planning a girl’s night out – NTC Live workout followed by dinner and drinks! The real challenge will be making it out of the store without a new pair of new, shimmery kicks.
