Class Action: Nike Training Club at 24 Hour Fitness

Nike Training Club is an app created by the athletic-wear giant that offers sports-centric workout routines created by professional athletes—like Serena Williams and Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson—and the company partnered with 24 Hour Fitness to create a group fitness class based on the app’s workouts.

While the fitness props and moves change from class to class, it always follows an interval-training format, with 30-second to two-minute intervals, depending on the exercise. Also expect a high-energy instructor with an upbeat playlist.

At a recent class at the Soho location on Crosby Street (which, by the way, is a real gem of a gym), we alternated between cardio and strength-training circuits that included two sets of three exercises. The cardio intervals were heavily plyometric with squat jumps, box jumps, burpees with a jump. (Are you sensing a jump theme here?)

For strength training, we alternated between using light weights, heavy weights, and resistance bands to work our arms, back, core, and legs. I especially liked the combo exercises like lunging to the side and then twisting with a heavy weight in hand and push-ups with a row at the top.

Overall, Nike Training Club delivers a solid, full-body workout. It may not turn you into a US Open star, but it will definitely up your athleticism if you add it to your routine.

Who’s it for: Former high school athletes, boot camp lovers, those who want to build functional strength and endurance
