This past Saturday I got to be a part of the NTC Tour LA and it was full of fitness and fun from 6:30PM to 12:30AM. The event was dubbed “Nikechella" and for good reason. The venue was huge and detailed down to the last portapotty—mirror, lotion, face wipes, tampons, and hair ties included. Huge stages and arenas were set up like a music festival, and speakers blasted tunes that were sure to pump you up. I shouldn’t have been surprised because Nike never sets out to be average.

The NTC Tour was divided into 6 different events which varied for everyone depending on their goal for the night. I opted to get lean so my night included: the Nike Women Epic Workout, Nike Training Club, Rest & Refresh, Flywheel, Groov3, and the Grand Finale. Water/NUUN stations were scattered all over and we even had maps incase we got lost. In the SNKRS courtyard they served food and had tables decorated with Air Max “vases" that made me feel like I was at a wedding. Photo ops were literally at every corner.
Huge prop to the kickass instructors who lead all the classes, and of the night I have to say that the Flywheel class was my absolute favorite. It was my first real cycling class and I can’t even put into text how incredible Holly’s energy was. I felt so motivated by her words and her playlist was definitely on fleek.
I had a lot of firsts at that event and although I was pretty drained by 11PM, I’m so grateful for the experience and am so inspired by all the wonderful people I met.
