New About The Nike+ Run Club App?

cache_sb_s_847a3c7196.jpgNike is no novice when it comes to an on-line presence, and an app for training and motivation. They have had runners log hundreds of millions of runs, with a staggering total of more than 2.5 billion miles. If a relay were set up for that distance, it would circle the Earth more than 108,000 times! The Nike+ Run Club amounts to a reliance of the app, but one which is careful to capture your other runs with the previous version - the Nike+ Running app, good news to the OCD among us (and if you have been running compulsively and recording obsessively, you know what I mean).

In addition to best-in-class tracking for indoor and outdoor runs, the redesigned and updated app provides the premier motivation-guidance-support system, helping athletes to run farther and faster than ever before, propelled by the following new features:

NEW (ADAPTIVE) COACHING

Three distinct training programs designed by expert coaches help athletes “Get Started,” “Get More Fit” and “Get Race Ready.” Can’t make Tuesday’s Speed Run? Need to move the Long Run to Thursday? Not a problem. The updated Nike+ Run Club app adapts coaching plans to athletes’ schedules on the fly. Additionally, in-ear (i.e., audio) coaching from experts, like sprint legend Michael Johnson, helps push the runner’s pace.

#MOTIVATION           

Whether on trail, track or road, hashtagging a run instantly connects Nike+ members around the world to a global leaderboard and collection of the photos shared with that hash-tag. Stickers showcase runners’ route maps, stats and elevation gain, allowing them to customize their photo—they can also further layer the photo with exclusive emoji-like stickers to create a truly unique running story.

STRONGER CONNECTION TO A RUNNING COMMUNITY

Join one of our 250 weekly Nike+ Run Club live session experiences, led by NRC Head Coaches and Nike Pacers. “Ready, Set, Go” sessions lay the fundamentals for novices while weekly Speed Runs, held at iconic track venues, help runners unlock their full pace potential. Also, users can discover, book and check-in directly to sessions via the new Nike+ Run Club app.

#TUNES

Playlists, featuring songs selected by Nike athletes and specifically designed to increase athletes’ speed, power up every run.

NO PHONE NECESSARY

The AppleWatch’s built-in accelerometer provides runner access to all of the in-run app metrics and experience so you can leave your iPhone at home.
