First workout with Nike Training Club app

I'm always looking for ways to shake up my workouts, and when I found out that the Nike Training Club workout app was free, I thought I'd give it a download and a whirl.

As everyone points out, the app is geared towards women, but it's a useful as a general workout app for anyone who wants to work up a good sweat and doesn't have access to a gym or workout equipment. There's lots of different options to choose from ("Get Lean," "Get Strong," etc.) and beginner, intermediate and advanced levels.

I started with the "Get Lean" beginner level, which was pushups, lunges, planks, squats, and assorted other similar exercises. And let me say: this workout kicked my butt. Hard.

I really didn't think that a 30-minute workout consisting of 30-second, 1-minute and 2-minute mini-workouts would be so hard. But it was quite challenging and when it was done, I was quite done, thanks.

I'm sure I'll use this app mostly on the weekend when I don't have acesss to my gym at work and want to do something different than the usual cardio and weight routines.
