Check out the new Nike+ Training Club App as the New Year starts

Nike is releasing a new Nike+ Training Club app as the New Year approaches to get us all in shape.

Several new features elevate the standard of personalization. Athletes will now be able to develop four-week programs and customize individual workouts. In addition, users can download only the workouts they want, giving them more control over the content in their app. The N+TC App will also feature Nike+ Running integration and NikeFuel enablement, helping athletes better measure their workouts.

Four-Week Programs

A personal trainer serves to motivate and mix things up when an athlete’s workout is getting stale. The N+TC App accomplishes both by providing four-week programs that keep users committed to their goals of getting lean, toned or strong.  These programs will push the female athlete to put in the time, even on those days when motivation is lacking.

Customizable Content

Users can now customize workouts by swapping out select drills for alternative ones. For instance, a female athlete preferring Russian Twists to kick downs can make the switch without sacrificing any time spent working the same muscle group.

Downloadable Content

The N+TC App will feature more than 100 workouts, all of which have been refreshed from the app’s previous version, six of which are entirely new. Fresh content will continue to populate the app in the coming months to keep athletes engaged and excited.

With all content included, the app is approximately 500 MB. However, users can now choose to start with the 50 MB shell of the app and download individual workouts one at a time. This enables athletes to personalize the app with only the content they want, while also keeping it lighter and faster.

Nike+ Running Integration

Running is a natural staple of training regimens. With this in mind, the N+TC App now offers running in its four-week programs. In doing so, it integrates with the Nike+ Running App, which helps athletes map their runs, track their distances and measure the calories they’ve burned. In addition, the minutes from each run will be added to the user’s N+TC minute total.

NikeFuel Enablement

The N+TC App estimates the NikeFuel that is earned and the calories that are burned for each workout. In addition, users with the Nike+ FuelBand SE will be able to tag their N+TC sessions in the Nike+ FuelBand App.

Athlete Workouts

Bonus athlete and reward content is now available to all users, no matter how many N+TC minutes they’ve earned. This content includes workouts inspired by world-class athletes such as Maria Sharapova, whose “New Year’s Crush” workout will launch in harmony with the new N+TC App.

Milestones and Sharing

All hard work deserves recognition. Once users finish a four-week program or eclipse a training minutes marker, they will be awarded with milestones. Athletes can share these milestones, as well as completed workouts and motivational messages, via social media.

Nike Training Club is a global proposition, with female athletes from around the world comprising its community. The new N+TC App will be available on both iOS and Android in English, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, French, German, Spanish and Italian-language versions.

The app is free to download and will be available beginning Dec. 31. For more information, visitNike.com.

Listen to The Internet “Timeless” feat. NickyDavey

The Internet release a new track for all their fans titled “Timeless.” Take a listen to the single from the duo of Syd The Kyd & Matt Martians below which also features NickyDavey.

The Internet is a soul band created by producer Matt Martians and lead vocalist Syd “The Kyd” of Odd Future. The two met via Myspace in 2008, and later became good friends when Matt moved from Atlanta to Los Angeles in February of 2011. They began their first project together in May of that year, and by December had released it as a full-length album entitled Purple Naked Ladies.

Syd, who started her career in music at 15 as a self-taught recording engineer and producer, had only begun to try to sing at the age of 16, when she produced and wrote a song called “Flashlight,” after which she wrote one more song before going on a three year writing hiatus. During those three years, she got deeper into the art of music production, began working primarily with Odd Future, mixed and mastered several Odd Future albums, and toured with OFWGKTA as their DJ. She started writing again when she and Matt began working on Purple Naked Ladies, which she is proud to say she wrote almost on her own.

Matt, producer and primary illustrator behind all of The Internet’s work, started his career as a musician in college with a production group he named The Super 3, before the other two members ditched him and he decided to keep the name and pose as a three-man production team. Instead of posting pictures of himself, he’d draw the three original members as space habitants. After producing various tracks for almost every member of Odd Future as The Super Three, he left Atlanta to further pursue his career as a music producer.

Originally, Matt and Syd planned to release Purple Naked Ladies for free with very little promotion, and they never planned on performing it live. But after being persuaded by management to take the project more seriously, the two decided to release the album under Odd Future Records, making it the first album to be released under the label. The subject of live performances was daunting to Syd, who had just begun to sing, had never had a singing or vocal lesson, and wasn’t quite comfortable with her singing voice yet. So when talks of live performances got serious, Syd and Matt insisted on performing with a backing band instead of backing tracks, hoping it would take some of the pressure off of them on stage. So they teamed up with some of Syd’s old friends, Patrick Paige II (bass), Christopher Allan Smith (drums), and Tay Walker (keys) and turned The Internet into a band – a band that has in one year performed over 60 shows in North America and Europe…

The Internet recently released their second LP, a soul album entitled Feel Good, on September 24th through Odd Future Records. The whole band helped produce it alongside Chad Hugo from The Neptunes and Grammy award-winner Mike Einziger, who earned executive producer credit on the album. Chris and Patrick can be heard playing live drums and bass on almost every track, as well as keys by Tay who is also featured vocally on the album twice. The sultry instrumentals are complemented by heartfelt lyrics from Syd and guest vocalists such as Yuna and Mac Miller. Together these parts coalesce to present a fuller, more dynamic sound that has evolved and matured significantly since their debut album. Ultimately, you’ll witness a group of good friends having a great time creating something they hope will stand the test of timeless music.

Drake releases “Trophies” (Produced by Hit-Boy)

Drake releases this new single titled “Trophies” produced by Hit-Boy. This follows last night’s announcement on twitter saying that he would release the song today. The sound on this is very different from what was featured on his last album. Lets hope this is the sound of a new sound moving forward.
