REALFLEX. NATURAL MOVEMENT PERFECTED.
[PETALING JAYA 8th SEPT 2012] – It was a day to be remembered as Reebok officially launches REALFLEX & a new fully-integrated campaign “The Sports of Fitness Has Arrived” (EXPERIENCE ZONE) in MALAYSIA. Held in Paradigm Mall, members of the media, celebrities and specially invited guests were gathered in the Upper Atrium Level UG of the mall to experience what REALFLEX & CROSSFIT is all about!
RealFlex is an athletic shoe designed for men who want to escape the stiff feeling of a traditional athletic shoe. Created with natural motion of the foot in mind, RealFlex is designed to help feet move and flex naturally while you run, jump and stretch.
With technology you can feel, Reebok RealFlex offers the protection of a traditional athletic shoe designed with natural movement in mind. The sole is engineered with independent multi-directional “nodes” strategically positioned to flex with the movements of the foot. The “nodes” work together throughout your stride, promoting natural movement and flexibility while offering protection from the elements.
RealFlex has minimalist construction and is designed to help provide lateral support for left-to-right training movements. The upper component of RealFlex footwear is both extremely lightweight and eye-catching, while the unique hotmelt application offers seamless detail and added stability.
“At Reebok we are committed to creating product technologies that offer immediate benefits you can feel. RealFlex has had such a positive response from consumers and we really believe that its combined natural movement, lightweight and protective technology can offer athletes optimal training benefits” Yan Martin, Head of Reebok’s Men’s Strategic Business Unit.
“The Sport of Fitness Has Arrived” Experience Zone - As a part of the campaign, Reebok is inviting consumers to take part in the “Reebok Experience Zone” to discover and experience CrossFit®, the revolutionary strength and conditioning program, and RealFlex, Reebok’s latest footwear technology engineered with independent multi-directional nodes that promotes natural movement and flexibility.
The Reebok Experience Zone, which will take place at Paradigm Mall, Upper Atrium Level UG 8th & 9th September ’12 from 10am to 10pm, will offer people the chance to participate in a “CrossFit Challenge” to win attractive prizes.
Reebok’s new campaign aims to change the way people perceive, define and experience fitness, and ultimately show the world that fitness can deliver everything they love about sport.
