Giveaway: Gearing Up For the New Year

Last month I had an amazing opportunity to visit Reebok Headquarters in Canton, MA.  Not only did I get to meet some amazing men and women and workout at Reebok Crossfit One but I was also introduced to more of Reebok’s amazing products.

Reebok Workout Gear

I love how versatile the fitness gear is, with capri pants designed for Crossfit, to breathable tops for indoor/outdoor workouts, and jackets to keep you warm pre/post workout.

Reebok Workout Gear

I’ve worn their gear at the gym, outside for a run, while out running errands, and most recently during football practice.  I love all of the gear I’ve worn, but I am beyond obsessed about Reebok’s SmoothFlex Run shoes!

These are the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever worn.  They are perfect for running outdoors, working out inside, and training on turf during football practice.

  1. Tera says

    I don’t have plans to change up my workout plans next year but they look super fun to run in :) obsessed with bright shoes right now!

  2. Larisa Dixon says

    I would use them for my new adventures in Crossfit. I am a week in and can already tell a difference. I am praying Crossfit helps me in my running, swimming, and biking. Fingers crossed;) thanks for the giveaway opportunity.

  3. Sarah G. says

    My goal for next year is to incorporate more weight training and HIIT into my workouts to lean out. New shoes would definitely help motivate me!

  4. Laura says

    While I’m not really a runner (I do try), I walk a lot…. 100 pounds down and about 20 more to go! I usually prefer running shoes over walking shoes. They are so much more comfortable and light weight. I could really use a new pair as right now I’m almost walking in my socks :-)

  5. lily says

    I love the color and look of these sneakers. They look so comfortable! I started to take bootcamp classes this past year and would wear these sneakers to class.

  6. says

    I was on a workout role at the beginning of this year, and was training for a goal I have had for years…to successfully run a 5K. In May, I had to have foot surgery which has delayed my goal. It was a nasty surgery and I have been working on getting back to a good place since.

    Part of the problem I have had in getting back to it has been finding a show that supports my new “bionic” foot as my hubby calls it (since a screw has been added to keep the bone in place). A good, solid tennis shoe could make a WORLD of difference in my training!

    Happy Holidays!!

    ps..I tweeted as well!!

  7. says

    I’m in the market for a new pair of running shoes, as I’m gearing up to start training for my second half marathon as well as my first full marathon in 2013 and I think my Nike Free Runs, as much as I love and adore their bright purple spunk and all of the miles we’ve had together, are ready for retirement. Winning these would be so amazing!!!!
    I’d probably use them for the gym, though, as I think I need a more stable shoe to carry me for 26.2. These look GREAT for short races though, which I plan on doing much much more of in the coming new year! And I’m dying to try Zumba, these babies look like they’d be just the right kind of shoe to get my groove on in. :)

  8. Rama Alhamwi says

    I would use them to practice in my new gym ! i just registered in a new gym for 2013 for me and hubby . i am so excited .

  9. says

    I’ve been eyeing your shoes in your posts and would love to start training in those bad boys in 2013. I’ve been crossfitting since March and have recently set some goals that incorporate more running/cardio – it’d be great to upgrade to a quality pair of workout shoes! =)

  10. Megan Roschek says

    I’m beginning to add more cardio into my workout routine. I’m active with CrossFit and love the Reebok Nano2 as well, so I’m hoping to love these and become an all around Reebok chick! Thanks, Happy Holidays!

  11. Michelle M. says

    Gorgeous! I would use these shoes as I up my mileage in the new year — I am training for my first half marathon! On Saturday I ran my longest yet — 5 miles. It’s a start, and I’m definitely committed to seeing this through. But I’m burning through my running shoes and it’s about time for a fresh pair. Thanks for offering this giveaway!

  12. Jassika Sheikh says

    I walk 40 minutes from work to home everyday, I would love to get more fit so these running shoes would help me get into shape for 2013

  13. Marissa says

    I want to win these for my mom. She has been working her butt off this year in hopes to accomplish her fitness goals. Lost 15 pounds the past 8 months. So proud of her and want to give these to her to show how much her motivation and dedication has paid off!

  14. Amanda says

    I would use them for so many things on my journey to being fit and healthy. I love circuit training and running so I think they would work great!!

  15. Jillian says

    I would use them for running and a little Zumba action! I am in depserate need of some new shoes but I get overwhelmed with all of the options.

  16. Renata says

    I definitely would love to try these shoes when I go to my gym and do cardio, weight training and body sculpting classes in 2013! Thank you!

  17. says

    I have been wanting these ever since you started raving about them. The crossfit I go to has an Endurance WOD were you just focus on running faster which is a hard thing for me to do.

  18. Carson says

    My goal for 2013 is to train for and complete my first marathon. These shoes would help me tremendously during training!

  19. Megan says

    I would rock these shoes in my training runs! I’ve been crossfitting for a year or so, but now I need to increase my running.. I’ve got some 5K’s planned for next year that need some running shoes!

  20. Kels says

    I started on my weight loss “journey” early this year, but I’ve got about 100 pounds to lose! New shoes are always so motivating, I’d love to try out some new reeboks!!

  21. says

    I would love to try these new shoes for my cross-training and using for my dog agility (I usually use trail running shoes for that). I’ve been wanting to try these Reeboks, but never have the guts to spend the money, in case they don’t work well (I tend to have that problem a lot with shoes).

  22. Danielle says

    ive recently started a new job at a fitness center that allows me to take fitness classes while i’m working! fitness, health, and wellness has always been a huge part of my life and i’m very excited to have found a job that supports and improves on this area of my life! my current shoes are becoming a few months old and with the rate i use them, some new ones are in demand! :)

  23. Jennie says

    I would use them as I try Insanity in 2013 or during some killer Kickboxing classes. I have been on the hunt for a good cross training shoe

  24. says

    I am getting back into shape after back surgery last year. I am at my pre-surgery run of 5 miles…but I just really need a new pair of shoes. Because it is the holidays, I can’t bring myself to spend on me when I have so many others to buy for. My current shoes are starting to hurt my feet!

    Love your site and found you through Daily Buzz Food. :)

    Happy Holidays!

  25. laura says

    This new year I plan to FINALLY learn to run. I have vowed to sign up for my first 5k, I have downloaded a training app, now all I need is the right gear. I have included the cute, breathable clothing on my Christmas wish list, all I need now are the super cool, comfy shoes. please, please, please pick me!!

  26. says

    I would use them to give running outside a try. Would love to change it up from running on the treadmill. Would also use them to train for the upcoming Spartan Race I want to try!

  27. Sarah S. says

    ohhhhh they’re so pretty!

    I would make sure that my bright workout clothes would match with equally neon shoes! I would tackle that treadmill with determination and highlighter-sweat left behind!

  28. Samantha says

    I would wear these shoes in 2013 to work my butt off! I have been sick for 3 years so haven’t had much oppourtunity, but my goal is to improve my body and get into good shape and good health again.

  29. says

    I would where them while I try to get into a new running habit in 2013. I am attending Fitbloggin in June and would also like to train to run the 5K there. :)

  30. Karishma says

    WoW, those SmoothFlex Run shoes really do look gorgeous! I have my Natal Colours in Karate & have always been active & athletic all my life! However, in 2007 I was diagnosed with an enlarged spleen condition & no reason for it being enlarged. I was therefore informed by my specialist to not train anymore :'( After almost 5 years, numerous ct scans & even a bone marrow, I am proud to say my spleen condition has improved and moving into 2013, my specialist has advised me to start training once again. This is the best news that I could ever receive & these SmoothFlex Run shoes will make this Christmas extra special & will also be the perfect start to 2013! Fingers & Toes crossed!

  31. Laura S. says

    Wow, what a great giveaway! I would use them to start my next at-home workout series – Insanity! I have been wanting to do this for awhile and new shoes would be the perfect motivation :-)
    Thank you Ashley!

  32. jules mcnubbin says

    I have GOT to get into shape this coming year. I plan to start taking some aerobics classes at the gym and a new pair of shoes would inspire me!

  33. Alicia Schroeder says

    I would wear them while getting back in to my running after the baby is born, it’s my goal to do a 10k this year :)

  34. Katie says

    I’d love to try out the shoes for weight training and cardio cross training. I’m training for a half marathon and need all the support I can get. Thanks!

  35. Stephanie says

    I’m on my last week of Jillian Michaels Body Revolution, I think these shoes would be just the inspiration I need to conquer my fear of taking cardio outside and running on something other than a treadmill. I told myself I’d do it when I finished body revolution and the time is rapidly approaching.

  36. Katy says

    As I’ve finally found my workout mojo again, I’d love to try out these new shoes!! I’d love to get back in to spin again as it was one of my favorite classes to take and think 2013 is the best time to start. As with all my injuries, working out is always fearful never knowing and hoping that another injury doesn’t occur. Having new shoes, or a wardrobe, helps keep anyone motivated to workout and think these new shoes will help get me started back with spinning and keeping up with my long list of stretches/exercises to keep injury free!!! :)

  37. Courtney C. says

    I would use the Smoothflex Run shoes on my journey to add variety to my workouts in 2013. I’m already signed up up for Fitness Playground, Hot yoga, Zumba tone, and more!

  38. Bridget says

    My goal is to start crossfit, but I also need to kick it back into gear and use the elliptical I have sitting in my basement! I was injured in August and haven’t used it since then :(

  39. says

    Would love to have these for running! They are gorgeous and I know Reebok makes really good quality products. I have had their walking shoes in the past.

  40. Michele says

    I would use these shoes to conquer cross-training. I need a good pair of shoes to workout in that aren’t my running shoes.

  41. says

    Wow what a great giveaway! I have been eyeing these shoes as I’m in the market for some good shoes to keep up with my weightloss/healthy me journey. I am about halfway on my journey to lose 70lbs and am just starting training for my 1st 5K. I am notorious for getting shin splints and I think a lot of it has to do with the shoes I’ve been wearing. I would use these shoes to workout at home on my elliptical/30 day shred and hopefully at the gym in the new year! (Really hoping Santa brings me a gym membership!) also plan on showing these shoes some asphalt and trail love while running a few 5ks in 2013!

  42. ann says

    I do currently work out 3-4 times a week but in the new year, I would like to try some new and different fitness classes and these shoes look like just what I need to meet that goal.

    And BTW, you look great and are doing so well. You are such an inspitation.



  43. abby r says

    i would love to use the shoes for a boot camp that is run by a student on campus. i need to integrate more than just running into my fitness routine.

  44. says

    I use to despise running and refused to do it, now I don’t know what my life would be without it! I run in the mornings and its such a mental relaxation. It totally clears my mind and refreshes me for my day. I honestly think it puts me in a more positive mood. I would love a nice new pair of shoes since the ones I have are older!

  45. says

    I was thinking that I would go try out these shoes just because you have talked about them so much. A new pair of running shoes is my gift to myself this Christmas. I would wear these shoes to all of the 5ks and 10ks that i plan on tackling in 2013. =)

  46. Ray S says

    I’d give them as a New Year’s gift to my wife who is working her training up to run a 5K! These would definitely boost her efforts and practice – thanks!

  47. Jennifer says

    I would love to be able to win these shoes. I have just started doing the Insanity dvds and they would give me better support than the shoes I have now.

  48. Jennie says

    I love these shoes. I have worked out pretty routinely for years doing the same thing. I am hoping to add in more strength training and doing something different. Never tried Zumba so that might be a start.

  49. Kyle says

    I am applying for the RCMP in jan and would use them to help me train for the physical test and also depot if I am lucky enough to get accepted :d

  50. Sara says

    My 2013 goal is to run one race every month! Having these shoes will help me reach my goal!!! I would LOVE these shoes!!!

  51. Krissy says

    Crossfit lover and Weight Watcher here! I would definitely use them to train for my first 5k! Looking forward to big things in 2013!!!

  52. Jessa R. says

    I would wear these shoes to Crossfit… I bought a groupon to start the new year off strong (and a new pair of shoes might boost my confidence – I’m a bit intimidated for my first class!

  53. Carol B says

    I am going to step up my workout game. I have not taken it seriously in the past but now due to health issues I need to get moving. Great give away!

  54. Luke Presland says

    Spending all of 2012 telling myself that I need to make a change and not actually doing what I need to do is something I’m hoping winning this prize can help with. I’ve always wanted to get ino running and getting fitter, however I’ve always struggled with ankle pain. These trainers would be a great help in pursuing my goal and being able to get fit in 2013!

  55. Kristen says

    Well I usually do Zumba and already have dance shoes for that, but as the area where I live is mostly flat and I’d really like to learn to run it’d be great to have a pair of new, supportive and comfortable shoes.

  56. Bongiwe says

    These lovely should would be the perfect inspiration to get my figure back as I recently had a baby now Im a bit out of shape so really need those shoes to start jogging again.

  57. says

    I would use the shoes to get back into running after having my first baby in April! I can’t wait to meet her, but I also can’t wait to get my body back ;)

  58. Amanda Stevens says

    I would love to win these! I just joined a bootcamp class that I will be attending 4x a week and some fancy new shoes would be awesome!

  59. Kirsten Diehl says

    I would love to win these shoes and use them to do the 13 races in 2013 challenege. I have a problem buying new shoes and my old ones are worn.. I would love to see if these are as good as the reviews!

  60. Michelle R. says

    I would use these amazing shoes to make my jumps higher in Step class, my moves groover in groove class, and use them to train for my first 5k!

  61. Jessica says

    I would use them to get back into a regular routine at the gym – Monday is step, Tuesday is body pump, Wednesday is spin, and Thursday is zumba.

  62. Leah T. says

    I would use these in my Zumba class that I teach 3 times a week! I go through workout shoes like crazy and I am due for a new pair.

  63. Nikki says

    After having my 3rd child in just over 4 years, I’m joining a gym for the first time ever! The weight isn’t just falling off like it did with the first two. I’d love to sport those shoes.

  64. Carolsue says

    I have vowed to go to the gym more often AND to walk more often — they would come in handy for both.

    My gym recently added a Kickin’ Core Ball class that I’d love to try these shoes out in! They look great for Zumba too! Thank you for the awesome giveaway =)

  66. Cate says

    I don’t have big plans to change my workout plan but I’ve been considering training for a half marathon. I did a full a few years ago and finally have the desire to train for a longer run again. Great contest!

  67. Keri says

    I will be running lots of races at least 13 or more and I’ve got a brand new fitness program that I’m going to start in the New Year. I would love to replace my old shoes with a new pair. A fresh start all the way around!! Thank you very much for this giveaway!! I hope you have a very Happy Holiday and wonderful New Year!!
    ******I just tweeted!!!******* :)

  68. cierra says
