What is Nike Training Club (NTC)?
NTC is a training app with over 100 full-body workouts developed by a Nike professional trainer. Built from dozens of multi-dimensional drills, these workouts are inspired by world-class athletes and based on years of Nike research, helping you get lean, toned and strong with audio guidance from a trainer.
Workouts can be completed in 15, 30 or 45 minutes, and each will tell you the approximate calories you’ll burn and the NikeFuel you’ll earn. But it doesn’t stop there: exclusive rewards like workouts from professional athletes and training advice are unlocked within the app once you reach key milestones.

TRAINING WITH NTC
What types of training does NTC offer me?
NTC is mainly a functional fitness training app. Functional training is a type of exercise that trains the entire body to perform better. It develops better muscular balance and joint stability, reducing the risk of injury and reinforcing the body's ability to move freely during any activity. It strengthens everything - core, back, upper body and lower body - and is ideal for everyone: from the performance athlete to someone simply looking to get in shape. NTC also offers some gym, high intensity and studio based workouts such as yoga and pilates.
Who is the trainer behind NTC?
Marie Purvis is an international trainer-of-trainers who has custom-built all of NTC’s full-body and targeted workouts. As a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Physiology, with personal trainer certification, and a roster of clients that includes professional athletes and non-athletes of all ages, Marie has the unique expertise and well-rounded background necessary to develop NTC’s diverse program.
Do I need to be a professional trainer to use this?
No. NTC is for all levels of fitness. You can select a workout to suit your ability.
What if I’m new to this type of training?
Workouts range from beginner to advanced, so you can choose the level that works for you. There are also different types of workouts - some with more cardio while others have more weights - so you can opt for the style that suits you. The volume and variety of workouts guarantee there will be something for everyone.
How will I know which workout is right for me?
Choose the level and style of workout that matches your goals. The app descriptions make workout selection an easy and intuitive process. Make sure you preview the drills for each workout before you start, so you know what to expect and what equipment you might need. Detailed instructions and videos ensure you know how to perform each drill.
What is NikeFuel?
Alongside calorie information, NTC gives you the approximate NikeFuel you would earn for each workout. NikeFuel is the ultimate measure of your athletic life. So you can get extra motivation, and compare and compete with friends. Unlike calories, which vary according to your gender and body type, NikeFuel gives you a normalized score that awards the same moves the same score, regardless of your body type. http://nikeplus.nike.com/plus/what_is_fuel/
Does NTC track my moves?
Not at this time. Based on the results of other app users, NTC gives you an approximate score for each workout’s calories and NikeFuel. It does not track your moves in the way that the Nike+ FuelBand or Nike+ Running do.
Can I skip a drill?
Once you’ve started a workout, you can’t skip to the next drill within the workout.
Can I replay my last drill?
Unfortunately, you can’t replay your last drill. You can only pause your workouts.
Do I need special equipment?
No. You can do all of the drills and workouts without equipment or weights. But some drills will be even more effective if you are able to complete them with equipment.
How do I pause a workout?
As you work out, you’ll see a large button on the bottom right that can be used to pause your workout. When you’re ready to begin again, press ‘Play’ in the centre of your screen.
How do I find my most recent workout?
When you first open the app, you'll be able to start your last workout quickly from the homepage. You also can see all your previous workouts by choosing 'My Workouts'.

Why am I having trouble downloading NTC?
Please first ensure you have enough space on your phone for the app (estimated 1GB). Also check your Wi-Fi connection. If you lose connectivity, the download and install will pause until Wi-Fi is restored. You may find it easiest to download the app on your desktop computer, and then sync it to your phone.
Why can’t I login?
Check there are no spelling errors in your email address or password. Nike+ passwords are a combination of letters and numbers, and must use both upper and lower case letters.

I’m trying to sign up, but it says I already have an account?

I’ve reinstalled the app or got a new phone. Why have I lost my minutes and badges?
Your NTC minutes and badges are stored on your phone. So if you replace your phone with a new one, or if you have to reinstall the app for some reason and haven’t synced with Nike, we’re very sorry but you will lose this data. If you have a recent back-up, you can restore most of your minutes from there. We know this isn’t great, and we’re working right now towards a better solution.
