For those concerned about lack of exercise due to telecommuting and self-restraint measures:

Ezaki Glico Co., Ltd. launched its online "Sports Park" website on July 7, 2021.

The site aims to support its customers’ "mental and physical health," offering educational information about the body and sports through the "with Glico" community site.

Do you know Glico?

Glico is a Osaka-based Japanese multinational food company, known for their various confectionaries like Pocky and Pretz, as well as the landmark "Running Man" sign overlooking the city’s nightlife and entertainment area, Dōtonbori.

They launched their "with Glico" community site in 2020. It’s based on their corporate philosophy of "good taste and health," to work with customers from the same perspective, hence "with Glico."

The site can be used for free, but does require registration.

"Sports Park" is divided into three main sections:

    This section provides information on sports and health, including effective training methods to increase motivation, knowledge of the effects of nutrition on the body, and how to recover from fatigue and rest to continue for a long time.
