ASICS Studio

I get great core workouts on my ASICS Studio app. It's a mobile fitness app that offers unlimited access to on-demand workouts. The experience features trainer-led audio, curated playlists, and videos to help users keep their bodies moving and heads in the game--wherever and whenever they have time to work out.

We connect my phone to the TV in our living room and broadcast these workouts for the entire family. Fitness classes and gym memberships can be expensive and difficult to fit into busy schedules. For a fee of $9.99 per month, ASICS Studio provides access to a complete collection of studio workouts including strength training, treadmill, fusion (strength + cardio), outdoor running, elliptical, and indoor cycling workouts.
