The streaming giant we have all come to associate with sitting down and chilling out, is now encouraging you to get your backside up and moving.
On the 30th of December 2022, Netflix released its collaboration with fitness giant Nike and their Nike Training Club (NTC). Workouts are included in your Netflix subscription and they will have more episodes to follow later in the year.
Netflix subscribers can utilise a selection of home workouts inclusive of their existing subscription fee with a total of 30 hours of training available across 5 different programmes.
The workouts range from 10–30 minutes and include:
- Kickstart Fitness with the Basics (13 episodes)
- Two Weeks to a Stronger Core (7 episodes)
- Fall in Love with Vinyasa Yoga (6 episodes)
- HIT & Strength with Tara (14 episodes)
- Feel-Good Fitness (6 episodes)
The sessions are mainly interval-style training with some yoga sessions too.
It seems to be geared towards more beginner level and the workouts are mostly equipment free from the ones I have watched. The Feel Good Fitness series is a little more intense and utilises dumbells, blocks and bands but workouts are still only 10 minutes long
I feel that this series is targeting the type of person who is just starting out with fitness and could be a way that Nike is trying to get in front of different audiences and to eventually get them to move over to their NTC app which is more extensive with the content library.
NTC used to be a paid app at $14.95 for their premium programmes, but during the pandemic they made it free in an attempt to help people keep fit and healthy during the time when we were all stuck in our homes.
I really love that there is now more free or low-cost content out there than ever before. But with that comes overwhelm and many beginners just don’t know where to start, so don’t end up starting at all.
The beauty of the Netflix series is that there is less to choose from. You can pick one and just work your way through it one episode at a time.
The challenge with any streaming platform is that you still have to become the type of person who can be self-motivated enough to get up and actually go and do a workout. And then keep on doing it week after week.
For most beginners this becomes the hardest part, there is no accountability, you have to do that for yourself. Or even if you are accustom to working out but aren’t seeing the results that you want, that’s because it’s not just about the workout. It’s the nutrition and lifestyle habits that need to go with that training that will really make the difference to your body.
So whilst I love the concept of having these sessions available, just remember that you still have to find a way to crack the consistency piece too. If that’s something you struggle with then check out the article below for some strategies to help you with that.
