Chris Hinshaw's Running Workout

Even the most dedicated runners can get bored running the same route over and over again, so we’ve teamed up with Reebok running expert Chris Hinshaw to create a dynamic workout focusing on running drills to improve form, flexibility and mobility.

 Hinshaw developed this exclusive workout as part of Reebok’s 2017 brand campaign, highlighted by the emotional spot, ‘Hands’ – an evolution of our “Be More Human” platform. The campaign highlights how our hands tell the stories of our effort and hard work, successes and failures, and dedication to improvement.   

And beginning today – on the heels of New Year’s resolutions and looking ahead to a better tomorrow – we are offering free workouts from top trainers in 10 key cities through the trainer-on-demand app Handstand.

Not one of our key cities?  No worries! We teamed up with fitness experts in multiple disciplines to create a workout just for you. 

Hinshaw’s training targets the general fitness enthusiast, or someone who is interested in a wide variety of athletic activities.

Hinshaw’s exercises focus on movements that will help both sprinters and endurance athletes reach their goals.  They can also be used as a warm-up for supplementary fitness activities in the gym or on the track.

“What we have seen is small doses of strength and conditioning coupled with a good cardio program creates a level of fitness that is unlike any that we’ve ever seen,” he says.
