Heat Star Dwyane Wade Gets Fans Into Championship Shape with New 'Driven' App

If you're looking to shed some pounds for beach season as well as harness your NBA superstar skills, you are in luck. 

Per a press release over at Enhanced Online News, Wade and Driven Apps have released a new app that features the three-time NBA champion giving fitness and basketball tips to fans through video and other tutorials. 

The app is now available for download from the App store for $3.99, which includes an "All Rookie Bundle." It seems the latest fitness program for digital devices will have a number of these "bundles" to help customize the user's end experience. 

As for Wade, he sounds enthusiastic over his first foray into this particular strength and skill application. Here is what he had to say, via the press release: 

There’s nothing else out there like this. I’m excited for my fans and aspiring athletes to have access to the drills and moves that make me stand out on the court. Most importantly, my Driven App provides a great workout program that guides you step by step through the exercises that will change your game so you can train, compete and live like a champion.

And you thought getting into fantastic shape was going to be hard. Apparently, all you need is four dollars and you too can share in the spoils of the NBA elite. 

All snark aside, this is a great way for fans to get a closer look at how their favorite NBA star trains while also getting into fine physical shape themselves. 

We live in a new world in which sports stars who once loaned their names and likenesses to shoes, energy drinks and other items are now getting into the digital marketplace with apps. 

Wade is still fresh off an exhausting but rewarding seven-game NBA Finals win over the San Antonio Spurs. Much has been made about the guard losing a step to his game during the season, but he managed to deliver when it mattered, playing nearly 40 minutes in each of the final four games of the season. 

Sure, you might not get a championship ring or parade through Miami, but you can now impress your friends with improved skills and endurance.
