On August 23, 2016 NIKE, Inc. (NKE) launched a significant update to its popular new Nike+ Run Club app, which gives athletes access to a new adaptive coaching feature, expert guidance from the world’s best athletes and coaches and unrivaled motivation and community – all designed to make running easier and a lot more fun.
“Through the new Nike+ Run Club app, we’re serving a running community that spans the globe with the most innovative and personalized experiences we’ve ever offered to runners,” said Nikki Neuburger, VP, Global Running Brand. “We’ve thoughtfully considered and updated how we surround runners with everything and everyone they need to reach their full potential and have more fun with the sport, from coaching plans that adapt to meet their needs, to inspiration, motivation and a community of million to run with.”
Adaptive Coaching Programs
A new feature in the Nike+ Run Club app helps athletes run farther and faster than ever before with a new adaptive coaching engine. This groundbreaking coaching engine starts with a runner’s fitness level and goals and adapts to their performance and schedule.
The Nike+ Run Club app also includes access to expertise from the world’s best elite athletes and coaches. Nike+ Pro Tips serve all runners – from the first-time runner to the seasoned pro – with content that will help them to run better and enjoy the sport more. Access to this expertise combined with best-in-class run-tracking accuracy for both indoor and outdoor runs, delivers the ultimate digital running experience.
The best app or coach in the world is of little use if it doesn’t motivate you. The Nike+ Run Club app has been specifically designed to harness the power of friends and community to provide unrivalled inspiration and encouragement. The NRC community loves to challenge and compete against their friends so a new NRC hashtag challenge feature enables this friendly competition. Additionally, upgraded social tools use photo sharing, a huge selection of Nike stickers, hashtags and the feed in the Nike+ Run Club app make it easier to celebrate and inspire friends and the global community. Ultimately, every run shared to the Nike+ feed inspires others to run.
