At Off The Mountain,
we train people for life-changing mountain adventures.

Our mission is to create a community of athletes who will play on mountains into their 100s. 

As strength coaches and mountain athletes based in Park City, UT, we plan to ski, board, climb, bike, run, and hike into our twilight years – and we want you out there with us.  

Our approach to training ageless athletes rest on three principles: 

Evidence-Based Training

We draw on scientific studies, rigorously tested training methodologies, and experience with mountain athletes to design our programs. Everything we do in the gym has a purpose.

Train to Last, Not to Break

Getting your sweat on feels great, but going “hard” every day in the gym is a recipe for pain, injury, and retirement at a bingo table. We help you balance training and recovery to achieve longevity.

Adventure at Every Age

To train our best, we need motivation – new trips, peaks, races, and trails that remind us of why we love mountain sports. We encourage our athletes to keep checking off those bucket-list adventures. In this community, we train for a lifetime of adventure, one mission at a time.
