Nike+ Training Club Manila Launch

Nike Training Club Manila launch

I’ve written about and mentioned Nike+ Training Club a few times in my blog. I first encountered NTC last year during Tights Night and Leap Year Day. I really enjoyed the circuit workouts then, so I downloaded the NTC workout app and began using it as part of my cross-training regimen. I also got to attend an NTC live session late last year.

The Nike+ Training Club relaunches this 2017! Starting March 4, NTC Live classes will be held on Wednesdays 8:30pm and Saturdays 10:30am at Kerry Sports Manila in Bonifacio Global City. You know what the really cool thing about this is? It’s absolutely free! Continue reading “Nike+ Training Club Manila Launch”

Kikay Reviews: Zonal Strength Tights

Nike Zonal Strength Tights

Nike launched their new Zonal Strength Tights two weeks ago, and a few of us from the media were given the opportunity to test them out during the weekly Nike+ Run Club Home Run event held at Bonifacio High Street.

Last year around this time Nike launched their Power Speed running tights, so I couldn’t wait to experience the difference between that innovation and this new one.Β  Continue reading “Kikay Reviews: Zonal Strength Tights”

Nike Run Club Open House

Last Saturday, Nike Run Club held an Open House event where runners could discover what NRC is about and what it can do for their running. Sessions were held in the morning and afternoon led by the Nike Run Club pacers as well as coaches Ian Banzon, Ico Ejercito, and Rio de la Cruz.

I dropped by in the afternoon because I’d missed the Thursday session due to my Singapore trip. I didn’t realize Bonifacio Global City, and Bonifacio High Street in particular, was a hive of activity on Saturdays! Thankfully the NRC tent was where it usually is, in front of the Nike Park store.

Kikay Reviews: Nike LunarEpic Flyknit

Like I mentioned in my weekly wrap-up post on Monday, I’m going to tell you about the Nike Epic Run held last Saturday at Nuvali where we tested the Nike LunarEpic Flyknit running shoes.

I mentioned the midcut LunarEpics a few months ago that were launched alongside the twice-weekly Nike Run Club sessions. Now Nike has introduced low-cut versions for women with the same sole and insole technology to make you feel like you can run forever. Continue reading “Kikay Reviews: Nike LunarEpic Flyknit”

Nike Run Club: Long Run + Gear Up Sessions

There are now only eight weeks left until the Nike Run Club Women’s Half Marathon happening on May 15, and if you’ve already signed up with your best girl friend you should be receiving the weekly training program. Last week was all about building endurance, and on Saturday afternoon the Nike Run Club held a group long run in Bonifacio Global City exclusively for the NRC Women’s Half Marathon participants, complete with coaches, pacers, and hydration and nutrition support.

Nike Run Club Manila Launch

Bonifacio High Street has been a hub for runners since 2009, and with the launch of the Nike Run Club last week, you’ll see a lot more runners converge on the commercial district every week for training.

Nike Leap Year Day

When Nike asked me last week to save the date of February 29 for their Leap Year Day event, I was intrigued and straight away committed my Monday despite not knowing what was in store for me. The only clues I had were that we had to show up at Puerta Del Parian in Intramuros wearing running gear, and that I would be partnered with Cai Subijano of Preen.PH.

When I showed up, I was given this map. I realized we would be taking on Intramuros, Amazing Race-style!

It would be a Leap Year Day to remember
