As part of the push by Kochi Prefecture to promote sports tourism, as well as to encourage the health and wellbeing of residents, CrossFit Otoyo Strength hosted an elderly tour group from Kochi City who spent the morning learning about CrossFit and ways to incorporate strength training to live a long and sustainable life. The group also sat down for a locally sourced country-style dining, followed by an afternoon of hiking through the beautiful Otoyo mountain scenery.

About the OTOYO FITNESS RETREAT project
VP Advisors K.K. was recently awarded the ¥60mn METI business restructuring subsidy. The company owns and operates CrossFit Otoyo Strength, providing CrossFit classes to local residents in the town of Otoyo. The METI subsidy gives us the funding necessary to build a bigger facility in the mountains, helping revitalise this region, where visitors will be able to stay, play and explore while keeping fit at CrossFit Otoyo Strength. The 1500sqm fitness retreat is scheduled to open in summer 2022. Follow CrossFit Otoyo Strength Instagram account for updates.
