ASICS Podcast Series

The story of ASICS begins with a simple belief: That a run is more than a workout. That a match is more than a competition. That sport is more than a game.​

It’s the belief that every time we push our bodies, sweat, and run out of breath—we get happier. And that no matter what, we can find light if we choose to move.​

Every day is a fresh start. Lace up your shoes and go meet it.​

Hosted by ASICS Ambassador and TV Presenter Teigan Nash, the Sound Mind, Sound Body Stories podcast will be a 12 episode series launching on 8th June, 2021.​

With the end in sight for Covid19, the Australian sporting landscape is back in action and the 2021 Tokyo Olympics on the horizon, the Sound Mind,Sound Body Stories podcast will talk to athletes across multiple sporting disciplines about their journey to reach their goals, and their ‘why’ and ‘how’ they move for a sound mind and a sound body.​

Each athlete has a story to tell about how they work to achieve balance in their lives and what helps them to keep a sound mind as well as a sound body.
