TORONTO — Leading fitness brand Reebok today officially released its Fall/Winter 2013 Women’s Fitness and Lifestyle apparel and footwear collections in Canada, after previewing them at the Reebok Women’s Fitness & Lifestyle Event in New York City earlier this spring. The event saw several Reebok brand partners such as singer-songwriter Alicia Keys and yoga expert Tara Stiles reveal the new collections.

Spearheading the releases is Keys’ Fall/Winter 2013 Reebok Classic x Alicia Keys Collection. Designed in collaboration with the internationally renowned singer, songwriter, producer and mother, this is Keys third range of footwear with the historic brand. The newest collection introduces exclusive limited edition lines featuring iconic Classic silhouettes and Keys’ unique creative touch. Featured style Reebok Classic A.Keys Wedge ($119.99) blends leather and suede overlays, while incorporating a hidden three-inch heel to cater to the season’s trend.

I’ve had so much fun working on my third collection for Reebok Classic. I love collaborating with the Reebok Classic design team to update my favorite sneakers, with cool new twists like a wedge heel. I’m really proud of the new collection,” said Keys.

Classics aside, the other new women’s collections continue to complement the brand’s commitment to women’s fitness, aiming to change the way women perceive, define and experience fitness. Reebok works to empower women to pursue a more engaging form of fitness by embracing their passions and get physically, mentally and socially fit.

The new Yoga, Studio, Walking, Running and Training collections have been created by women for women. Products were designed with female body movements, body shapes and style preferences in mind to create the most holistic female fitness apparel and footwear Reebok has ever delivered. Renowned yogi and Reebok partner, Tara Stiles said “It was so exciting to introduce women to Reebok Yoga and the new Fall/Winter 2013 Yoga collection that Reebok and I have designed together.”

Reebok Yoga bends the rules by taking yoga out of traditional environments and conventions making it fun, fresh, athletic and accessible to everyone. The Fall/Winter 2013 Reebok Yoga collection takes inspiration from Tara Stiles’ rebel attitude, using bold unexpected graphics and contemporary urban design that is designed to complement and adapt to women’s bodies during yoga practice. The  Reebok Yoga Powerstripe sweater  ($69.99) and MYOY Striped Long Bra ($49.99) are perfect examples of the new bold offerings.

Reebok provides a fresh approach to running by emphasizing the benefits of a varied running regime and the importance of including running as part of a holistic fitness program. The Fall/Winter 2013 Reebok Running Collection is designed for the fitness running consumer who appreciates innovation, style and design. With a three-foam midsole, decoupled outsole, and stable lateral arch area, the Reebok ONE Cushion ($129.99) is designed to maximize comfort and performance for runners with a neutral gait and a strong arch. The shoe’s pronator version, the Reebok ONE Guide ($139.99) features a similar midsole for comfort, flatter medial arch for stability, and an outsole release zone to help maximize stride integrity. Coupled with the line’s key apparel pieces, such as the Sports Essentials Tight ($49.99) and Sports Essentials Short Bra Top ($29.99), Reebok will offer women high performance footwear and apparel, along with the motivation and inspiration to fuel their success.

Reebok Training offers a new way of viewing fitness by promoting the benefits of a varied workout program. The brand believes variety is the key to long-term fitness and that all workouts should be challenging, fun and social. To encourage the adoption of such fitness programs, Reebok provides functional product to meet women’s workout needs with the Fall/Winter 2013 Reebok Training collection. The colorful Reebok ONE Training Women’s Jacket ($79.99) and Reebok ONE Trainer shoes ($109.99) are both high-performing and stylish; perfect to reach those fitness goals in style.

Michael Rossi, vice president at Reebok Brand Canada added “Women, and in particular women’s fitness, have always played a key role with Reebok. Reebok was the first brand to create footwear specifically for women to work out in, with the Freestyle back in 1982. Since then, we’ve continued to create products designed specifically for women who enjoy an active lifestyle.”

The Reebok Classic x Alicia Keys Footwear Collection, Yoga, Studio, Walking, Running and Training collections are available online at www.reebok.ca at various prices starting this fall.

Kathryn Budig 'brings a fun and playful energy to the practice.'

Kathryn Budig has been dubbed by at least one online source as “yoga’s first supermodel.”

Indeed, in the same vein as Tara Stiles (one of my personal faves when it comes to yoga experts), she’s not hard to look at.

But like Stiles, Budig is more than just another pretty face.

The photogenic yoga expert is helping to take the ancient practice to the masses.

“Budig brings a fun and playful energy to the practice, while also using her trademark ‘workshop style’ to demystify challenging yoga poses, making them easy to understand and master,” says a PR rep for Budig’s new DVD, Aim True Yoga.

For all the nitty-gritty, check out this press release:

kathryn-budig-headshotNEW YORK — Gaiam, Inc., the leading distributor of lifestyle media today announces the DVD release of Aim True Yoga. Kathryn Budig, one of yoga’s newest and most widely recognized faces, delivers an entirely new energy to the practice of yoga.

Sondheim, president of Gaiam. “Yogis new and experienced will appreciate her motivating and lovable personality in Aim True Yoga as Kathryn brings her ‘Aim True’ philosophy to life on the mat.”

Experience a fun and fresh approach to yoga with Aim True Yoga. The DVD starts with a 25-minute Beginner’s Practice showing an easy-to-follow Vinyasa flow practice. Step things up in part two with an intermediate-level practice called “Authentic Flow,” during which Budig pushes participants to the next level in their practice. Self-described by Budig as the “super workshop,” Yoga Poses Demystified, the final DVD chapter, breaks down five of her favorite poses into simple, easy to follow steps.

“I’m a huge fan of and believer in Gaiam’s commitment to yoga and healthy lifestyles and am very excited to work with them,” says Kathryn Budig, “Yoga has changed my life and I believe that it can change the world, so I’m very excited to share Aim True Yoga!”
