This game gives you a personalized workout from Nike's expert trainers. It starts with a fitness assessment where you define your goals: to get strong, get toned, or get lean. The workouts continually adjust based on your progress, delivering real-time feedback to make sure that your positions and movements are correct. To keep you motivated, every 4 weeks you are given an assessment of your strength, endurance, and overall fitness. You have the option to compare your results against other members of the Nike+ community or Nike's own stable of athletes, if you dare.
