Reebok's mission to make fitness fun again!
Sep '08
“The gym is a chore”… “Working out is boring”… “If exercise was more fun, I would do it”… According to in-depth research conducted by Reebok, women around the world are looking for a way to take the boredom out of staying fit.

Reebok identified the need to bring fun back into fitness through proprietary research and information gathered by GFK/Roper Worldwide. In 2008, based on 15,000 women in 25 countries, GFK/Roper Worldwide found that nearly half of the women said that while they know exercise and keeping fit is very important to their overall health and well being, less than 25% participate in fitness often.

Through extensive discussions with women around the world, Reebok pinpointed the consumer insight that women perceive exercise as a chore, and would workout more often if the gym was fun. Reebok also uncovered that while it is a universal truth that women find exercise transformational and empowering, they push it aside because it is perceived as a boring chore.

To fulfill this consumer need, Reebok is on a mission to make fitness fun again through an exciting partnership with top instructors from around the world renowned for their fresh, fun approach to working out. The Reebok Global Instructors Team have partnered with the brand to debut a groundbreaking new fitness initiative, to be announced later this year.

The Reebok Global Instructors Team was hand selected by Reebok because of the unique combination of energy, motivation, inspiration and fun they bring to their fitness classes. They are some of the most passionate, talented and remarkable fitness instructors in the world. Instructors from Sweden, Germany, Korea, UK, China, Russia, India, Mexico, Brazil, Spain, France, and key US cities including New York City, Los Angeles, Boston, Miami and more comprise the Reebok Global Instructors Team.

Reebok's instructors face the daily challenge of banishing the boredom from working out.

“The hardest test for an instructor is to create fun workouts that challenge and stimulate,” said Brazilian Reebok instructor, Raquel Salvadori.

“I see so many people coming to the gym with a closed mind because, to them, exercise feels like a chore,” said Swedish Reebok instructor, Jennie Widegren. “It is so important for my students to have fun in my classes. The right moves make people open up.”

“It concerns me when I see people coming into the gym weary and unmotivated,” agreed New York based Reebok fitness instructor, Sara Haley. “I am always looking for new ways to get them excited and to bring the fun back into fitness.”

Reebok's insightful new point of view on fitness will be supported by an integrated global marketing campaign featuring the Reebok Global Instructors Team. The campaign further reinforces Reebok's challenger approach to provide consumers with the choice to take the boredom out of working out.

Running online, out-of-home, in-store, and in print in key markets, the campaign features fun, engaging taglines such as, “Less work, more play. Fitness is what you make of it. Your Move” and “Confusing fitness with fun? Your Move.”
