Pushing People’s Limits Through Sports

That passion forms the very essence of Mizuno.
From our beginning, we have supported top athletes tirelessly pushing the limits of what we consider possible, and people of all generations training daily to improve their personal records.
Mizuno is pursuing research to further uncover the psychological mechanisms that can improve concentration and help people get into “The Zone,” essential to achieving new athletic heights.
Improving the Health of the Mind and Body Through Sports
From reducing obesity and improving muscular strength, to enhancing the immune system, relieving stress and even boosting cognitive functions , research has clearly demonstrated the benefits of enjoyable physical activity.
Many modern lifestyle diseases are also induced through a lack of exercise.
Mizuno’s vision is to create a society in which sports become a treatment prescribed by doctors.
Through development of its proprietary exercise programs and other efforts, Mizuno is committed to extending the healthy life expectancy of people worldwide.
Improving the Environment Through Sports
In addition to researching materials, designs and manufacturing methods that reduce our environmental impact as a sports goods manufacturer, Mizuno considers sports itself a form of environmental conservation.
Switching from travelling by car to healthy alternatives such as cycling, running or walking is one initiative.
Mizuno is driving the developing of its products and services to support the achievement of this goal.
Mizuno is also focusing research on converting the mechanical energy generated by exercise into electricity.
Supporting Child Development Through Sports
Mizuno knows the power sports hold to foster healthy child development.
Engagement with sports goes beyond building a healthy body, it also encourages healthy psychological development as children build the skills of thinking for themselves, self-expression and helping each other.
Our vision is to share the joy of exercise with children from a young age and cultivate a growing population of sports-lovers,
Creating a world in which everyone can learn the invaluable life lessons sports have to offer.
Mizuno will leverage its technology to contribute to the psychological and physical growth and development of children.
