Reebok unveils new ‘delta’ logo as the sportswear company moves from professional athletes to fitness buffs


In what’s only the second major change to the brand’s logo in its 121-year history, Reebok is debuting a new delta logo to be used on the company’s Crossfit gear.

The change is part of the brand’s move away from associating itself with professional athletes and towards what spokesmen call the sport of fitness.

‘For 30 years we’ve been successfully making products for elite athletes in every imaginable sport, but what we haven’t been able to do is inspire enough people to move,’ said Reebok Chief Marketing Officer Matt O’Toole in a promotional video on YouTube.

‘It’s an invitation for all of us to take part and fight against complacency for everyday people not just super stars and elite athletes,’ he said.

Founded in the United Kingdom, Reebok apparel featured a Union Jack flag from 1895 until 1986. It has featured a vector log ever since, but that insignia will now be phased out on all products with the exception of Reebok Classics, Ad Age reports.

The new delta logo will get a broad release on both footwear and apparel later this month.

Though Reebok has long partnered with and endorsed professional athletes in basketball, baseball, football, soccer, tennis, and hockey, it has repositioned itself in recent years. It gave up its NFL sponsorship deal in 2012. It has also bowed out on deals in favor of parent company, Adidas.

As professional connections dwindled, Reebok turned to making itself known as a brand for Crossfit, yoga, dance, and aerobics.

‘The Reebok Delta has three distinct parts each representing the changes — physical, mental and social — that occur when people push themselves beyond their perceived limits and embrace an active and challenging life,’ Reebok said in a press release.

After years of slow sales, Reebok saw a retail jump of 5 per cent in the most recent quarter. Executives claim the brand would see growth for the full year.


Icelandic Glacial™, the super-premium natural spring water from Iceland, is inviting Americans to experience the “Icelandic Way” of life with the launch of its “Pursue your Passions” campaign , beginning on January 28th.  Iceland is a land of red-hot volcanoes and frozen glaciers. This beautiful, raw environment influences everything from the arts to the culinary tastes and strength of Iceland’s inhabitants. Icelanders live their lives without compromise and are passionate about the pursuit of their goals. This is evident by the disproportionate number of world-class athletes, world-renowned chefs and great artists that hail from this tiny island country. Icelandic Glacial is celebrating that determination with an ongoing series of contests that allow consumers to experience the “Icelandic Way” first-hand.

Icelandic Way

The first themed part in a year-long campaign series will celebrate Iceland’s fearless Viking heritage by focusing on strength and fitness.  Iceland’s Viking ancestors settled in a land where volcanoes and glaciers clashed. Because of this harsh environment, they developed a legendary will to survive and cultivated a culture of strength and fitness.  Participants in this first series will have a chance to travel to “The Land of Fire and Ice” to train with two-time CrossFit Games competitor, Frederik Aegidius, as he prepares to compete for Iceland in the 2014 games.  Frederik found inspiration in Iceland’s high-caliber athletes and strong dedication to health and fitness.  This coupled with the country’s notoriety for placing well in the games led to his decision to compete for Iceland this year.

“Icelandic Glacial is very proud of its strong heritage, and we want to share the benefits of this culture with consumers.  Currently, there is a lot of interest and curiosity about Iceland and we want to use this campaign to inspire people by showing them how Icelanders live their lives,” commented Jon Olafsson, chairman and co-founder, Icelandic Glacial.  “We’re very excited to partner with Frederik for the first part of this ongoing series.  The passion and dedication he exhibits for his sport is a great example of how to pursue one’s passion without compromise. It will truly be an eye-opening experience for someone to have the unique opportunity to personally train with him in Reykjavik.”

Beginning on January 28, 2014, U.S. consumers are invited to visit the Icelandic Glacial Facebook page to submit an overview detailing how they passionately pursue strength and fitness and why they want to train with Frederik in Iceland.  The entry phase will close on March 23rd and then the public will be invited to vote for the best candidate to send to Iceland to experience fitness the “Icelandic Way.”  While in Iceland, the winner will have three training sessions with Frederik at his box in Reykjavik.   To inspire consumers pursuing their fitness goals, Frederik will also post a series of tips and videos throughout the campaign on the Icelandic Glacial Facebook page.

“I am thrilled to represent Icelandic Glacial during this campaign to connect people with Icelandic heritage.  I am continuously inspired by the country and the passionate way its athletes tackle their goals.” commented Frederik Aegidius.  “I’m also eager to work with the winning participant in Iceland – being immersed in the Icelandic culture and surrounded by athletes who are completely dedicated to the sport is a life-changing experience.”

World Osteoporosis Day to be celebrated on Oct. 20 at SM Mall of Asia


WOD 2013 to promote importance of active lifestyle, proper diet for better bone health 

Inline image 1

(Manila, Philippines, October 17, 2013) — The importance of an active lifestyle and proper diet to maintain strong bones is the highlight of this year’s World Osteoporosis Day (WOD), which takes place on October 20. In the Philippines, Anlene invites families to join the special celebration at the SM Mall of Asia Music Hall featuring fun group activities and learning sessions.

Celebrated in over 90 countries, WOD is an annual, year-long global campaign for bone health. Started by the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF), the event is dedicated to raising awareness on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of osteoporosis and other bone diseases.

Organized by Anlene, the Philippine celebration of WOD 2013 will also focus on the mother’s role in promoting bone health. IOF and Anlene believe that mothers are the backbone of families throughout the world; hence, it is important to protect them as they age. WOD 2013 encourages families to fight lazy bones by leading an active lifestyle as well as taking calcium-rich food like milk to delay weakening of bones.

During the whole-day event on October 20, Anlene will formally launch “Kilos, Pamilya”, a healthy lifestyle movement that promotes strong bones and strong bonds.

Participants will get to meet the movement’s celebrity family ambassadors—Pia Magalona and daughters Maxene and Saab. “I am raising my family to be strong and resilient. As a mom, I lead by example. As parents, we are our children’s mentors,” Pia said. “We should be self-disciplined, enough to be able to enjoy the good things in life, by living the good life. We should stay active and mentally alert by getting enough rest, exercise, and having the correct diet. These are all important to maintain good health, especially for the bones.”

A bone health expert from the Asian Hospital and Medical Center will also give a lecture on how to properly care for the bones and shed light on why it is important to get off the couch and start leading an active lifestyle.

The WOD 2013 also includes fun activities for the whole family. The event will feature bone scanning sessions, zumba and aerobics classes, yoga, tai chi, and many more. Raffle prizes also await lucky participants. The event will be held from 7 am to 7 pm. Entrance is free.

The World Osteoporosis Day 2013 is co-presented by SM Mall of Asia and Gold’s Gym and supported by Asian Hospital and Medical Center, David’s Salon, Maynilad, Ever Bilena, Viajero. Special thanks to the Philippine Rugby Football Union and Peace Blossoms Internal Arts Society. Media partners include BusinessWorld, HerWord.com and Crossover 105.1.

Holidays Weigh ‘Heavy’ on Women’s Waistlines


 

 

Jenny Craig and FITNESS Magazine Survey Reveals 47% of Women Admit to Gaining 4-5 Pounds During the Holidays

 

 

Carlsbad, Calif., and New York, NY — (December 5, 2012) —The holidays can be a hectic time, and for many women, the stress takes a toll on their waistlines, says a new survey from FITNESS Magazine and Jenny Craig.  According to results, even though the majority of women have been on at least one diet during the past two years, nearly half (47 percent) admit to gaining an average offour to five pounds during the holiday/winter months.

 

“The holidays can be a difficult time as there are so many delicious options at parties and dinners,” said Barbara Rolls, Professor of Nutritional Sciences and the Helen A. Guthrie Chair in Nutrition at The Pennsylvania State University and founder of the Volumetrics® Approach to eating, exclusively featured in the Jenny Craig program.  “Moderation is key. You can enjoy your favorite holiday treats, but do so in smaller portions and be sure to fill up on lots of lower-density foods such a big salad. Just hold the creamy dressing.”

According to the survey data, rich comfort food and an increase in social gatherings were the primary culprits for weight gain. Nearly two-thirds of women (61 percent)noted that they could not resist the allure of tasty treats often available during the holiday season. Increased stress, limited selection of fresh fruit and vegetables, and decreased activity (due to a slump in motivation) also factored into cold-weather weight gain. Sixty-six percent cited that they are less motivated to be physically active during the winter months.

FITNESS Magazine and Jenny Craig have teamed up to offer some tips so consumers can still indulge while avoiding the bulge:

  • Fill your plate with healthy fruits and veggies  Losing and maintaining a healthy weight is all about moderation, not deprivation. Barbara Rolls’ Volumetrics® Approach, which is exclusive to the Jenny Craig program, includes suggestions such as eating an apple or drinking a hot cup of chicken broth before heading to a social gathering. You will be less hungry and more prone to choose healthier options such as shrimp cocktail, crudité and fruit skewers, which you can eat in abundance.

 

  • Eat one treat — Choose one “splurge” on the entire buffet table to eat and then choose healthier options for the remainder of your plate. This way, you still feel like you can participate in the festivities, without the consequences later. A splurge, for example, would be a small slice of cheesecake, a chocolate truffle or a glass of wine or champagne.

 

  • Have a game plan in advance — Having a game plan before you go to a dinner or holiday party can make all the difference. Jenny Craig offers consultants who can help plan out your meals or adjust your activity levels, so that you can enjoy your celebrations and avoid having to think on your feet about what you’re going to eat.

 

  • Sneak in a workout without even feeling it – During the holidays, it can be easy to lose motivation to stay active, especially during the winter months. Since physical activity is so important to achieving and maintaining a healthy weight, stay inspired by trying a new class, taking a walk at lunch with friends or even doing some laps around the office to burn a few extra calories around the holidays. This is of course, in addition to regular, moderate exercise two to three times per week.

                                                                                                                                         

  • Yes, you can drink alcohol and lose weight – Most traditional cocktails average more than 250 calories, so look for lower-calorie options. A wine spritzer is approximately 60 calories. Or, opt for celebratory champagne; an average flute is about 80-100 calories. Also, remember to hydrate yourself – you can still feel festive by enjoying a sparkling water with cranberry.

 

  • Be the friend you want to have! –Before you head over to a holiday party, call the host to see if they want you to bring over a healthy option, such as a hummus and veggie platter. That way, you know you will be able to fill your plate with something tasty without loading up on the calories and will help your friends do the same.

 

 

“We hope that these survey results empower consumers to take a proactive approach when it comes to managing their weight during the holidays,” said Dana Fiser, CEO of Jenny Craig. “Jenny’s one-on-one consultations provide clients with successful strategies to create a healthy relationship with food, while encouraging moderate activity and a balanced approach to living, which can help achieve and maintain a healthy weight. In fact, Jenny clients lose three times more weight than dieting on their own.”*
