Through sport, we have the power to change lives

Zaragoza is the HQ for the Iberian region as well as the rapidly-growing tech hub for all of adidas. The work we do here has the power to connect people all over the world and provide them with amazing sport-inspired experiences. But we can’t change lives if we don’t take care of our own. This is why we offer weekly classes like body balance, Cross-Fit and Zumba. We lead hikes into the mountains (another great reason to be in Zaragoza) and organize award-based activities for teams.
