We all need a little motivation to stay active when winter rolls around. My motivation for the past two years: friends. There’s no better motivator than a buddy to get you out the door when it’s cold.
Thanks to Nike’s winter series and all the amazing friends I’ve made by attending the Nike Run Club and their NTC classes, I can now keep on top of my fitness even during winter.

Last year, Nike organized a bunch of outdoor events leading up to the beginning of winter and this year, they’ve upped the ante with the launch of the Nike.com‘s online shop in Canada. Not only do they now ship to Canada but you can even design your very own custom pair of NikeiD shoes right here in Toronto. Furthermore, they also provide 1 on 1 coaching with some of Toronto’s best running and fitness trainers.
Their new #GETOUTHERE events have been the perfect mix of running and high energy training.
That said, when I can’t train as a group, I’ve been getting back into the N+TC app, who’s workouts are constantly evolving. I love that I have so many different styles of workouts, workout lengths, etc. to choose from. Right now, I’m really digging Betina Gozo’s Fresh Hit 14min workout on the app. The drop squat and lateral jumps are some of the moves that she’ll make you do.
Angelica Bengtsson’s Abs and Arms Workout is also one of my current favorites. I like that I can use a park bench as a prop for some dips!
