Gyms and Swimming Pools

OIST Gym

OIST Gym

OIST has it's own gym for OIST employee, student or family members. The OIST gym, located in the Village Center, is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, year round. Any OIST employee or student or family member thereof who registers and attends a training session can use treadmills, elliptical trainers, spin bikes, weight machines, free weights, exercise mats, and other resources. The gym also includes a water cooler and showers for users who live off campus. Students can use the gym for free; employees pay 400 yen per use, up to 4,000 yen per month.

Village/City Owned Gyms/Swimming Pools

There are village or town-run sports gyms and swimming pools available about 20- to 30-minute drive from OIST. Facility fees tend to be less than those of private gyms and swimming pools, and a discount will be applied if you are a resident. Please confirm the price in advance as most of them have a variety of pricing systems.
