Nike+ Active

Ever dream of running through famous cities like Paris, France or Sydney, Australia?  Welp, with Nike’s new Nike+ Active that just got a whole lot easier!

As you may or may not know, I am a huge fan of Nike+ and man did they just take it to the next level!

Nike basically took the entire Nike+ system and turned it into a giant video game.  Every mile you run earns you “Nike Fuel”.  You use this Nike Fuel to reach goals, conquer cities, and collect medallions along the way!

While touring these awesome cities you will encounter famous landmarks.  For example, in New York I stopped by the Brooklyn Bridge, Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, and Central Park.  The coolest part about it?  You can view pictures and even send postcards (complete with picture) to all your FaceBook friends from these landmarks!  Awesome!  :-)

Current cities include: New York (Holla!), Mexico City, Rio de Janiero, London, Paris, Stockholm, Johannesburg, Hong Kong, Tokyo, and Sydney.

I can’t wait to conquer the globe!  :-)

    Great thought and design. Too bad it does’t work right. Got so frustrated, like many others, that you get stuck in a software loop and cannot progress. Do not suggest anyone use it. Too bad Nike great idea but you blew it.

      While I agree that the software isn’t perfect, I don’t Nike “blew it”. I just conquered the world and it was awesome! It’s a very cool tool that Nike created to help keep people motivated. Yes there are bugs, and sometimes it crashes, but I’m sure Nike will continually improve the product and help keep thousands of Nike+ users running! ;-)

        Congradulations, jsoldo.

        Glad it worked for you. Wish it was awesome for me too. For me the tools is just a bike with square wheels, go nowhere and get fustrated each time I use it.

          Sorry again that your having problems with it. Have you checked the Nike+ forums to see if there is anything you can do to fix it? They are very helpful there. Maybe its your computer or browser?

          • bengie00 says:

            Tried all the fixes listed. Fustrated that Nike has no support contact for this program, I know it is Beta but usually you have a feedback location so that bugs can be posted and fixed. Such a great motivation tool and would be easy to recommend to people to use. I would create a new user name and start again but I cannot figure out how to change the user on my ipod device. Too bad for me.

    I have enough nike points to conquer a city but nike wont let me conquer a city!

    • jsoldo says:

      The forums on the Nike+ website offer great resources to resolve issues people have with their software. Hopefully you’ll be able to figure it out!
