Join Lifestyle Fitness for our inaugural Obstacle Course (OC) training at our private outdoor facility.
What To Expect
OC 101 is a 90 minute group training session that includes instruction and demonstration of over 14 different commonly used obstacles found at Obstacle Course Races (OCR), such as the Spartan Race. It also includes hands-on learning in which participants will get to experience obstacles firsthand. Amount of hands on experience for each client will depend on number of participants and skill level of each group. OC 101 is a group training session, not an open course.
The obstacles participants will practice include monkey bars, spear throw, 5’6” and 8’ climbing walls, cargo net crawl, knotted and natural climbing ropes, transverse wall climb, tire runs, Tractor tire flips, Hercules Hoist, Zig Zag balance walk, log hops, cinder block pulls, and sandbag carries, to name just a few.
What To Wear
Wear comfortable workout clothes and supportive running shoes. Since the course is held in an outdoor setting, we recommend dressing in layers to ensure you’re prepared for whatever Mother Nature dishes up that day. Keep in mind that climbing ropes, walls and crawling can be abrasive to bare skin. Wearing gloves for climbing ropes and monkey bars is a personal preference and produces mixed results. We offer a changing room should you wish to change clothes. The dirt on the obstacle course is soft and will find it’s way down shirts, pants and inside your shoes. We recommend bringing a towel to dust off dirt and a second pair of socks and shoes.
What To Bring
Besides yourself and your stamina, please bring the following:
- Water to drink
- Hand towel
- Completed Informed Consent form & Par-Q form (if paid through website & didn’t email forms back)
- If you plan to pay the day of the class, please arrive a minimum of 15 minutes early to do required paperwork.
