If you thought driving a Buick was like driving your dad’s car to iHop…for the early bird special, you might be in for a surprise. Just ask Sports Illustrated model Nina Agdal who stuns in Buick’s latest video campaign advocating the need for stretching during long distance travels.
Driving long distances always seems like a good idea, I mean #roadtrip! – but after the Instagram pictures wear off and that new Spotify playlist starts getting old, even Delta economy (gasp!) can sound really good.
Well Buick is looking to change the road trip game by putting health and wellbeing at the forefront of long drives and they’re celebrating its new compact luxury SUV, the Buick Envision, with the Buick Envision Joy to Drive video. The video features the gorgeous Nina Agdal and her long time trainer Akin Akman who designed stretching routines to aid comfort before, and after, long drives.
“I travel a lot for work with much of it being long distance whether it be driving or flying and I know first-hand the value of making sure that pre and post journey I look after my body – stretching helps deliver that comfort that allows me to relax and make the journey a joy,” said Agdal.
About the routine itself Akman added, “These moves were designed to support core strength and increase blood flow and heart rate to stimulate alertness which is helpful both pre and post long drive.”
The routine includes the “Neck Stretch” which targets the sides of your neck and alleviates the “stiff neck” feeling which can lead to headaches and make driving a pain.
There’s also the “Eccentric Upper Body Push Up” designed to increase blood flow to the arms and upper body. To achieve this stretch, lower yourself onto the car until your chest is almost touching the hood or front panel, and then shoot back to starting position.
With Buick Envision’s soft touch materials, sculpted surfaces, ambient lighting and ample leg room road trips in this car might leave you ditching your gym membership when you get home… garage yoga is so going to be the next big thing.
