Want Steve Aoki to be your personal trainer? Then you have to either get a job at Dim Mak, or watch Aoki Bootcamp Live whenever it gets here.
Top DJ Steve Aoki is more than just a music producer, he is also a sponsored fitness enthusiast. In a recent post made on his official Instagram profile he hints that Aoki Bootcamp is going live soon.
According to a Vibe.com interview, Aoki Bootcamp originated from the producer’s habit of working out daily with his road crew on tour. Aoki explains, “To create any habit bad or good, you have to do it consistently over time. I created something called Aoki Bootcamp with my team. The boot camp is a regimen that we all agree to and abide by at the beginning of a tour.” He continued, “If you don’t follow that rule, you’re penalized somehow. If you eat the wrong foods, it adds to the workouts that you’re supposed to do. If you don’t do that, you’ll also be penalized financially and you have to pay a fine. That fine, then go to a charitable organization. We take it seriously. We have a Whatsapp group where you have to put in a video of your workout to prove that you’re doing your pushups, your sit-ups, or whatever it may be to add to the repetitions that are allotted for the day.”
Last year Aoki was made the official spokesman for Japanese athletic apparel line Asics, to help strengthen the brand’s connection with younger consumers. He appeared in a commercial and fitness fans were encouraged to share images of the new gear with the hashtag #IMoveMe.
Aoki told Vibe the new partnership felt right. “The way I live my life is basically in alignment with the ideals of the partnership,” he said. “I tour like around 230-300 shows a year, somewhere between that. In order for me to continue that at that pace and level, I have to maintain workouts, and maintain a healthy nutrition & diet, and a healthy lifestyle. That’s how I see it. I’m in the long game. I’m not in it to live fast and die young. Maybe I loved that idea when I was a punk kid earlier in my life with a rebellious attitude.”

Last summer Aoki collaborated with streetwear legends at Diamond Supply Company on a line of men’s t-shirts, which promptly sold out.
We still don’t know if this live Aoki Bootcamp is going to be a workout video, or just a livestream or what. But in the past Aoki has only released a few clips of his exercise sessions so we are looking forward to staying fit with Steve Aoki and looking well toned in our slutty raver costumes.
Marshmello has new t-shirts available exclusively at Zumiez, where there are a few Steve Aoki x Diamond Supply shirts left as well. Check out the OWSLA Goods store in downtown Los Angeles.
