May I hereby warn you that attending a Nike Squat Party has consequences; perhaps not the day after, but I promise you, you’ll be feeling your beloved hamstrings within the 48 hours.
I pretty much thought I could handle a fair amount of squatting and therefor gladly accepted the Nike invite to their Amsterdam shop to be part of an NTC training that almost killed me.
It started out perfectly with a shoe and bra fitting that provided me with the perfect gear for an intense indoor workout. We then moved on to the NTC room where a pack of sporty spice chicks solemnly promised to not give up at any moment during the training. I broke that promise as these two trainers killed it with their excruciating squat routine.
It was fun, indeed… but pretty painful and shamingly confronting to realize that I still have quite some working-out to do, despite my weekly dates with Mr. Personal Trainer.
I’ll be working on that, just wait and see!
By the way: NTC stands for Nike Training Club and is an amazing way of staying in shape by exercising your body with heaps of great workouts. There’s an app to NTC, but it has not yet touched base in little Belgium, hopefully sometime soon.
In the meantime do have a look at the recently launched “Better for It” campaign, starring Margot & Lily in a fabulous and witty YouTube series about sport, friendship and new year’s resolutions.
It’s fabulous and I can’t wait until the new episode launches next week.
