With four pressure sensors and an accelerometer that records distance, steps and jump height, Quinceañeras can monitor their activity levels through an app, ultimately allowing them to see where they need to up their game.
It’s all part of the Nike+ Basketball and Nike+ Training apps for the iPhone, iPod touch and web, which- when synced with the Nike + Hyperdunk footwear, transmit data of your workout activity wirelessly to your iPhone or iPod touch so you can then analyze it and see where you need to improve.
The Nike+ Training includes athlete drill packs that were created following the workout regimen of some of the top athletes in the world like Shawn Johnson and Hope Solo. Word on the street is that there’s a drill pack in the work featuring Mexican soccer player “El Chicharrito”.
The workouts run between 10-15 minutes long and appear on your screen, making it easy to follow along and know what type of exercise to do next. Depending on your athletic level, you can also choose from beginning, intermediate or intense workouts.
And of course, there’s also a social media factor. Aside from being able to compare your stats with fellow users, the app has a “showcase” mode that allows users to record video of their movements for immediate upload to the Web.
Recently, I had the opportunity to try out the shoes and one of the workouts. It was great to follow the workout along and since it tells you what exercise to do, it took the guessing game out of working out. Also, seeing my score in comparison to my competitor’s made me try harder and aim for a higher score. I also had the chance to speak with a NIKE Ekin (that’s NIKE spelled backwards) to get more info on the latest Nike technology.
