ASICS Brand Spotlight and Giveaway

"Anima Sana in Corpore Sano" translates roughly from Latin to "A sound mind in a sound body." That saying became an acronym -- ASICS -- and that acronym gives a name to one of the most recognizable brands in running and fitness apparel.

Best known for their GEL® cushioning system, ASICS shoes have outfitted champions at every level as they achieved personal bests, set world records and earned Olympic gold medals. Triathlete Gwen Jorgensen of the United States ran to gold in her pair of ASICS running shoes.

While ASICS makes apparel and shoes for a wide range of activities, the company has made a major impact in running. Thanks in large part to GEL® technology, ASICS shoes are known (and loved) for their cushioning and support. With GEL® cushioning elements in rearfoot and forefoot combinations, plus constantly evolving midsole technologies like FluidRide and the Impact Guidance System®, you'll surely find your perfect shoe.

Check out these items from ASICS, then enter our giveaway below for a chance to win ASICS gear!

ASICS Giveaway

1. ASICS Lite-Show Shirt - Short Sleeve (For Men): For those days when you have to wait until sundown to head out, this shirt has reflective piping to keep you save in low light. It's made of ASICS Motion Dry fabric that wicks moisture and dries quickly

2. ASICS GEL-Excite 3 Running Shoes (For Men): Put a charge into your fitness regimen with the ASICS Gel-Excite 3, a versatile shoe at home in the gym and on the road. It has a Rearfoot GEL® Cushioning unit to soften the impact and a breathable mesh upper to keep you cool.

3. ASICS GEL-Flux 2 Running Shoes (For Men): Rebounding isn't just for basketball, you know. The ASICS GEL-Flux 2 running shoes augment their Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL® Cushioning System with a SpEVA® midsole that returns energy to your body with every stride.

4. ASICS GEL-Cumulus 17 Running Shoes (For Women): Put in as many miles as you want. Durability defines this neutral trainer, with GEL® inserts in both rearfoot and forefoot positions. Add light FluidRide midsole foam and you have the support you need for your training regimen.

5. ASICS GEL-Havoc Running Shoes (For Women): Light and airy, the GEL-Havoc fuels your run with a Rearfoot GEL® cushioning pad to aid the transition from heel-strike through toe-off. (Seriously, it propels you through your stride and into the next mile.)

6. ASICS Lite-Show Tights (For Women): These tights keep you warm and safe with reflective elements for low-light visibility and stretchy, moisture-wicking fabric that retains the right amount of heat.
