On a regular basis I get to go to some of the most rad events with Nike. Just this past weekend I get to say that I was part of the largest Nike Training Club workout in Africa! I spent my Saturday night at the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit with close to 1000 other women (yup, you read that number right) working out.
And it was so incredibly fun. It was a 90 minute session (I did have to leave 30 minutes before the end to prep some For Honor for the video I filmed, which you can watch here) with DJs playing while us ladies worked out with the incredible Nike training team. Trainer Simone has my goal body. I am so jealous every time I see her, hell I’d even take Ziyaad’s if I could (that’s a guy in case you were wondering).
The event was a celebration of women and also shared a message of believing in more and pushing yourself to new levels. It started when we drove in to the Kyalami Circuit and were greeted with the latest ad campaign from Nike Women. I’m in love with this new local campaign that sees inspirational women like top athlete Caster Semenya, incredible dancer Tarryn Alberts, Nike trainer Zaakirah (she quit her corporate job to do fitness full time!), Sbahle Mpisane, Cass Twala and Gena Lofstrand inspiring and encouraging while also showing off some of the latest gear from Nike. My friend Wardah wrote about the campaign on FabuFit and I’m hoping to have my own chat with Zaakirah soon.
All the ladies I mentioned above were at the event and we also got to work out while DJ Cosmo rocked the decks. It was this amazing night of fitness, fun and female empowerment.
But how do I take part?
I received A LOT of messages on social media after the event from other ladies wanting to take part and asking how they could get involved in Nike Training Club events. It is really easy to take part actually. All you need to do is download the NTC app here, register with the Nike+ Training Club online. For starters you’ll get some amazing workouts via the app to help you keep fit BUT you’ll also get notified of the Nike events and you’ll be able to register to participate. Best part? These incredible events are free!
So no excuse. Who is with me at the next one?
