Tokyo Athletic Club (TAC) Co., Ltd. celebrated its 50th anniversary on February 6, 2019. Very coincidentally, Japan's new era name was also announced as Reiwa after Heisei. As a Japanese corporation, it was considered as a big turning point.
For half a century, Japan has become globally peaceful and rich, however transforming itself into one of the countries that has low birth rates with super-aged societies. But people's lifestyles and values are becoming more diverse in the environment that is being still transformed around our society and life, along with the faithfulness of social security consisted of technological innovation, health care, and welfare.
However, no matter how much societies or people's lifestyles change, there is something that never changes.
It's Desire to “Healthy Life Expectancy" and “Health of Mind and Body”, which has become remarkable with today’s longevity and super-agedness
Tokyo Athletic Club’s foundation philosophy is "Fitness of Mind and Body."
Having the turning point with the 50th anniversary since the company's foundation, TAC wants to pursuit realization of a healthy, long-lived society that has been the desire of the people. To do so, we want to return to the beginning point in the spirit of “Heartiness” and form partnerships with local people and industry officials.
In 1970, TAC opened Japan's first membership-based fitness center in Nakano, Tokyo. Since then, it has been trying its best satisfying what customers wanted and needed. Today around the metropolitan area TAC is operating the fitness centers, gymnastics, dance classes, infant care education facilities, and own-expense rehabilitation facilities. In addition, it has begun nationwide public sports facilities operation in Japan and for the first time it opened "Kamisu Disaster Prevention Arena" (Kamisu City in Ibaraki Prefecture) as the company's first PFI project, in June 2019. In the near future, TAC branches will be promoted and extended around the globe as planned.
The upcoming Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2020 will be a great opportunity for the Japanese people to pay attention to sports as well as to the sports industry. In this time of rising energy toward sports, we will offer more value-added services through unique exercise guidance and support so that the locals are able to continue playing sports for the rest of their lives and maintain their "health of mind and body."
We look forward to your continued support and cooperation.
