You often find excuses for not working out. Whether it’s lack of time or money or you just lose interest or motivation. But your excuses are no longer valid! A famous sport brand Reebok decided to remind you that you don’t always need to be inside a gym to get a good workout because the gym is everywhere!
Summer is perfect for being active and spending time outdoors. So why not take your fitness routine to the next level and move your workout outside? Researches have shown that working out in the natural environment can not only motivate you to stay in good shape but also it helps you to burn more calories, tone your muscles and boost your mood and health while enjoying the sunshine, the surroundings and fresh air!
There are plenty of exercises you can do without spending hours at the gym such as walking, jogging, hiking and swimming. They are easy, effective and can save you some money. Some parks even have sport facilities which are accessible year round and are free to the public!
These all are sure good things. BUT! Have you ever thought of doing exercises at the bus stop while waiting for the bus to come? Seems incredible, right!
To make this idea come true Reebok partnered with JCDecaux, the leading outdoor advertising company in the world. Six bus shelters in Bogotá and Cali, Columbia were turned into pop-up gyms. People were invited to take part in the training session and do step-ups, push-ups, squats and more with professional trainers support. Seems genius!
This initiative is a part of Reebok ‘The Gym is Everywhere’ campaign that outdoor workouts can be also effective and fun. All you need is an inspiration to keep fit. Work out whenever you want! The gym is everywhere!
Usually people go to the cinema to relax, but Reebok makes them “Run the Movie” to watch the film. Let’s see.
Imagine you’re at the cinema, relaxed, with large containers of popcorn and ready to watch the film. Suddenly it stops and begins to buffer. Spotlights light up in front of the screen on the treadmills with Reebok running shoes nearby and point at randomly selected moviegoers.
Once they begin running on the treadmills, the movie keep on going. The faster they run the more quickly the movie continues.
Take notice that the movie is going just while people keep running and a buffer appears on the screen again when the treadmills are empty.
At the end all participants have been given a new pair of Reebok ZPump shoes.
The campaign, titled “Run the Movie” was done by the South Korean ad agency Innored for Reebok to promote ZPump Reebok shoe and also to provide people with healthy life style and keep them fit.
This method might seem too extreme in comparison with their previos Get moving, get pumped campaign in subway, but I like the way the Reebok do to brake people’s routine and never stop surprising us. 🙂
Reebok in South Korea has launched the pump battle campaign in subway to promote its ZPump Fusion model in unconventional way.
Nowadays people need to be more active and spend less time sitting in front of their computers in their workplace, or watching TV, reading, playing video games or driving. Sedentary lifestyle is considered to do harm to our health and rise risks of diabetes, heart diseases, and obesity.
To stay healthy you have to do regular physical exercises, take the stairs rather than the elevator, walk or bike to work and, of course, participate in wellness competitions. Exercising is what makes you keep healthy.
All things considered, Reebok with South Korean ad agency Innored has found an effective solution to keep people fit and inspire them to be more physically active.
In particular, a huge advertisement game screen was installed in the subway where two opponents to take part in the battle were chosen occasionally while they were waiting for the train to come in the subway.
On the video we can see some people feeling bored, others with their eyes glued to their cell-phones. They get amazed and excited one after the other when they find themselves appearing on the screen. They come up to find out what it is and see the message on the screen that encourage them to start the game. They hear the count of Three, Two, One Go and the game beginns. They have to move fast to press the most amount of Pump buttons during a particular period of time. The winner gets a reward– a pair of a Reebok ZPump Fusion sneakers.
