Exum Mountain Guide Christian Santelices hauling rocks at Mountain Athlete, an experimental training facility in Jackson, Wyoming, opened by self proclaimed gym rat Rob Shaul. Yet there I was barking instructions, coaching, cajoling and encouraging these world-class alpinists and Jackson Hole mountain elites to add weight, lift more, drag faster, work harder and demonstrate some friggin' mental toughness. The fact that my gym lacks the mirrors, weight lifting machines, aerobics room and cardio equipment of typical commercial gyms helped. In response I created a hybrid training program designed to increase an athlete's work capacity and build his or her horsepower. The two-time North American ski-mountaineering champion has climbed El Cap in a day and redpointed 5.13, but this was just his third session in the gym, and he's still acquiring an appetite for this intensity of training.


Back in the day John Bachar managed his own outdoors gym complete with barbells and other weight-lifting equipment in Yosemite. The Jackson climbers I initially approached to train in the gym blew me off completely, put off by my own mountain inexperience and an aversion to weight training.
Many came into the gym bringing decades of high-level athletic accomplishment, but little to no weightlifting experience.
I understand Todd Skinner hammered the weights, and I've heard stories about Alex Lowe's brutal training sessions.
Mark's mountaineering accomplishments, and his connected belief in gym training, helped give my program a thread of credibility when I first started out and spoke with skeptical mountaineers.


Just about all had a bias against training inside, and stereotypes of what "weight lifters" looked and trained like. CrossFit-inspired, super-intense circuits and classic interval training drive metabolic conditioning and cardio.
