Nike knows no limits.
This morning I was up and early making my way up to the Old Truman Brewery in rainy London for a Nike workout. Once I got there I gave my registration details to the ladies at the door and went in. I bet I wasn't the only one feeling over-excited as I was stepping into this spacious and flashy studio with a light installation that would rival most of London's biggest nightclubs.
As we entered the space, everyone was given a numbered black box emblazoned with the ever-inspiring tag line of the day - Unlimited You. Inside we could find everything we needed for the workout, so we geared up and got ready for action with a pair of Nike's latest training shoes and KOBOX boxing gloves. Oh, and there was also a cool T-shirt that we got to keep.
The first session with boxing gym Kobox was insane. The lights, the music, the equipment, the trainers, the atmosphere... It took the working-up-a-sweat thing to a whole new level. It was my first workout with them -(to be honest it was my first boxing workout ever!) - and I am already thinking when my next one is going to be! A serious amount of endorphins and rage was released in that room. Thanks Kobox Team!
3, 2, 1... Swap! After the boxing workout there was more to come! We got rid of our flexible training shoes and got a pair soft and bouncy Lunar Epic Flyknit's on our feet. Oh, they felt good!
With the shoes laced up tight, I was ready to take on an intense N+RC session lead by super energized coaches and a great live soundtrack by the London Orchestra.
It all started nice and easy on the treadmill and then things got rather intense in there; increasing incline, increasing speed, reducing incline, Sprint!!!! But no one in the room knew no limits, so we pushed through the workout and made it to the end. It was real fun and to top it off we burned a serious amount of calories - Not a bad way to start the day!
Of course, it's only right to finish an epic workout with an equally epic breakfast. So we did!! There were protein shakes, pancakes with fruit and granola and yogurt pots. We were quite hungry so we decided to go for a chocolate and strawberries protein shake and protein pancakes with fruit on top. Simply delicious.
You can enjoy this experience from August 19th to August 22nd at 89 Brick Lane. Tickets are £25 each and you can sign up HERE.
Remember, limits are only limits if you let them be. Unlimited Will. #UnlimitedYou.
Thank you, Nike Team.
