Women today are versatile and like immersing themselves to various challenges that can empower them to be stronger, if not better. Nike believes that women prefer doing different workouts. During the Nike Digital Conference that happened last March 10, 2015, Nike shared with us some of their latest designs, newest products and we even got a taste of the N+TC workout headed by SEA NTC Master Trainer Emelda Vincent.
The digital conference was hosted by Kim Jones. With her is Nike Southeast Asia Brand Director, Bulbul Khera who talked about how Nike engages and inspires the female athlete in Southeast Asia and globally.
Valerie Ng, Brand Merchandiser from Nike Women SEA, talked about how Nike designs for HER and how it innovates for the body in motion. More about Nike designs HERE.
Monica Torres, the Philippines’ #1 female triathlete for six years and counting talked about how it is being an athlete and what inspires her. She briefly mentioned that it also helps to get the right gear and workout outfit to keep one motivated. This I strongly agree. I’ve been working out for the past few months and ever since I’ve invested on my workout and workout gear, I’ve noticed I was more motivated to really push myself to give my best in each workout session.
After the quick interview, we were led to the showroom where the latest from Nike was presented.
Here I was with Kelly Misa & Lissa Kahayon.
Aaaah one of my workout motivations is having the right workout apparel. These Nike goodies made me drool, I want to own everything.
The latest Nike Tights and Leggings. The graphic prints that caught my eye are, according to Valerie, digitally printed so there’s less chance of fading with use and abuse over time. The fourth one from left was calling my name! Black and white, I want you!
Nike Pro Bra Collection with four products to provide a continuum of support: the Nike Pro Indy Bra, Nike Pro Classic Bra, Nike Pro Fierce Bra, and Nike Pro Rival Bra
The first Nike Apparel Innovation we got acquainted to that afternoon was the Pro Bra Collection.
NIKE PRO RIVAL BRA
NIKE PRO FIERCE BRA
NIKE PRO CLASSIC BRA
NIKE PRO INDY BRA
My favorite out of all the Pro Bra collection. It’s perfect for women who do yoga or pilates. It has removable pads and has stretch mesh at the back which enhances ventilation.

Nike’s upcoming Free Collection for Summer 2015, which includes the Nike Free 3.0 Flyknit, 4.0 Flyknit, and 5.0 Flyknit in exciting colorways. I am crushing on that black and white stripes & polka dots!
Nike Philippines Products Specialist Anrdo Torres gave us the first look at the upcoming Nike Free Training and Running Collection for Summer 2015.
Soon after seeing Nike’s Summer 2015 collection, we went ahead and changed as we participated in N+TC 15-minute workout.

The N+TC workout was headed by Emleda Vincent, SEA NTC Master Trainer.
She kept on pushing us to believe in ourselves and to finish the workout with her. She even went around guiding us on the right stance, posture and alignment while we were all busy trying to catch our breath. Heehee
I have actually tried N+TC workout. I have the app on my phone and have done a few routines back when I didn’t do yoga & pilates. It was hard for me then because I wasn’t in my tip top shape. So I was kinda dreading the N+TC workout as I know it would be tough especially for newbie fitness enthusiasts like me.
Surprisingly, it was a good & fun workout! I survived and so did the other women who did the workout with me. Grabe si Emelda, she’s definiltey the fitness queen! It was as if everything was easy peasy! Know more about N+TC app HERE.
Success! Isn’t it obvious how much relieved I was to finish the workout?! Heehee. Here I was sandwiched between Elaine Carag, Editor-in-Chief of Chalk Magazine and fitspiration Lissa Kahayon who didn’t even break a sweat during the workout.
Strooooooong is the new sexy. Sabeeeeh?! 😉
Thank you so much Nike for empowering us women. Thank you for the insightful afternoon. I am more motivated to workout because of these strong women and also, because of the pieces I want from your Summer 2015 collection. Time to save up for them!
Thank you also Emelda for the great workout! I didn’t look too obvious that I died during the workout, just look at how flushed my face is. Pumo-post workout glow. Naks. Hihihihihi. Now that I know I can do the N+TC better compared to before, I think I’m ready to do the N+TC workout on a regular basis, alternately with my yoga & pilates sessions.
Run. Train. Live. Well, I don’t really run but I’m not closing my doors when it comes to that. I might just give it a try in the future. I still have a long way to go when it comes to my fitness journey but I am so glad that I started because I realized I am capable. All I needed to do was believe in myself and just do it.
