There's a new power couple in the fitness sphere. The dynamic duo, while unexpected, has come together to get you motivated and moving in a partner routine that's just been added to Nike's Nike+ Training Club app. The workout is called "The Hart Serena."
Yes. You've got it right. Hart, as in—actor, comedian extraordinaire—Kevin Hart; and Serena as in—just-won-her-22nd-Grand-Slam-title—Serena Williams.
The workout is live on the app now. Created by Ben Monk, an athletic performance coach at Nike, this workout is all about using your bodyweight to grow stronger, hone athleticism, tone your back and arms, give you a quick total-body burn, and add strength and power to your upper body. Grab a buddy; keep your form solid; and get after it. It might not be as entertaining as Hart and Williams' sweat session, but it'll still give you one helluva workout.
The new NTC App is available for download for iOS and Android devices. For more information about Nike+ Training Club, to download the app, and do the Hart Serena will follow-along instructions, click here.
