A Day At Nike Football Elite Training Live Session

[100210]Nike Elite Training Live - 11

Around two weeks ago, Lowyat.NET was invited by Nike Malaysia to check out their new football grassroot program - through their partnership with Football Association of Malaysia - called Nike Elite Training Live. Taken place at Wisma FAM in Kelana Jaya, it was not a normal boring presentation since they actually put me and fellow media friends in the field to taste the training ourselves; which are based on Nike Football+ Master Control series developed by Juventus FC.

So, there we were with the Dri-Fit complete jerseys together and the new T90 Laser III boots. Enough with words then; roll on the pics!

Pre-training video briefing from the Nike Football+ program. This what made the interactive coaching program so awesome as you load them up to iPhone or iPod Touch to be viewed anywhere.

Really, once you on the field with the FAM coaches, it was totally different. Seems easy in the videos, but the training was actually quite intensive till one jorno (not me!) actually puked half-way through it. Even I myself who've been to gym for the past few months felt pretty challenged. It also doesn't really help that I haven't play football for quite a while. XD

If you curious what they put us into, these are the drills which you can check out at NikeFootball.com.my (choose All Accuracy Videos):

  • Direct Shot: Easy
  • Direct Shot: Medium
  • Dribble + Shoot: Easy
  • Direct Shot with Rotation

Overall, it was an awesome experience. Wish I could experience when I was younger...but then, isn't that mean I should already be a professional footballer now? Impossible, LOL.

Stay tuned for my impression of the new Nike T90 Laser III football. ;)
