Hakuba Mountaincross is a fitness gym designed for cross training to improve your performance in the mountains and reach your goals. Our 60 minute group classes mix up HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training), Weight Lifting, Cardio Training, Yoga, and Conditioning both indoors and out in the open air. The variety of exercises will keep you motivated and improve your athletic capacity. We only accept up to 6 people per class so the coaches can carefully tend to the needs of each athlete. Personal training and private group training can be booked on request.

Outdoor Training

We will periodically have outdoor activity days where all members are free to join. These will include hikes, trail running, bike rides, rock climbing, lake SUPing, cross country skiing, and so much more. Join our mailing list or follow our facebook page for updates.

“Being a parent, I know that it is not always easy to go out for a day long hike up the mountain or go backcountry skiing. But it is important to keep up your athletic capacity for the mountain sports you love. My goal is to help you train effectively so you can keep having fun outdoors, no matter what age you are.“

Ian has snowboarded most of the 3000m+ peaks in Japan including all of those in the Northern Alps and the big volcanoes (the Southern Alps remains a challenge!), about 75 of Japan’s 100 famous peaks, most of the easy rock routes at Ogawayama, raced XC and DH mountain bikes, and is an average kayaker, paraglider, and guitarist.  He is a firm proponent of Yvon Chouinard’s 90% rule (getting 100% good at something takes way too much effort) and an avid seeker of Type III fun.
