Japanese footwear brand ASICS recently announced that it will be opening a Tokyo training facility at the heart of the city next year. More precisely, the location is in the Toyosu district, adjacent to the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Athletes' Village.

The Tokyo training center will span 5,000 square meters and will provide access to a special low-oxygen training facility. ASICS makes its gym available to a wide audience — from sports enthusiasts to professional athletes. Dubbed ' ASICS Sports Complex TOKYO Bay,' the company attempts to simulate high-altitude training — 2,000 meters and above, in an indoor setting. This feature of the new Tokyo training facility is dedicated to improving physical endurance rates, especially for muscle efficiency.

ASICS will provide low-oxygen conditions for track and field, swimming and other sports.
