Nike Training Club adds adaptive workouts to make exercise more accessible

Nike wants to make fitness apps accessible to more people with disabilities. The athletics equipment maker has introduced adaptive workouts to the Nike Training Club app (available for Android and iOS) that you can do whether you have a disability or not. The seven courses in this set target a wide range of movement and equipment, ranging from upper body strength training with dumbbells to yoga.

A Nike athlete with a limb loss, Amy Bream, leads all classes. You’ll also find guidance from a physical therapist focused on adaptive training. The Training Club already offers an exercise program for expectant and new mothers.

The company isn’t alone in making these apps more accessible. Apple added Fitness+ workouts for pregnant women and seniors last year and has Apple Watch workout tracking for wheelchair users, for example. Still, Nike’s move is an important move that could bring exercise apps to a wider audience.
