Lululemon's Strength to Be campaign serves as the lifestyle brand's first male-targeted initiative. The campaign extended the brand's philosophy of mindful living to encourage men to celebrate their "true selves and representing their own definitions of masculinity and strength."
Strength to Be consisted of five short films that featured inspirational men, and highlighted the different ways in which yoga and mindfulness can be leveraged to find inner strength and balance. One of the ad spots featured Ibn Ali Miller, a nonviolence and social justice activist who gained recognition after a video of him breaking up a fight went viral. In the video, Miler explains that his mother taught him that "A real man is a man that works on being a better man constantly.”
The move coincides with the brand's ABC pant line, which offers a more inclusive range of workout garments. Strength to Be encourages men to re-define dated masculine stereotypes in an attempt to uncover their true selves.
