All obstacles at Otherworld Fitness are challenging. But we have made everything scalable for the newest OCR novice to the most elite. The obstacles are designed to challenge you physically and mentally. We guarantee you’ll have a huge feeling of accomplishment and confidence once mastered.
Climbing Rope: The Climbing Rope requires competitors to climb a vertical rope 15- 20 feet and come down in a controlled descent. Athletes are taught grip and form technique to master the obstacle quickly and efficiently.
Platinum Rig: The Platinum Rig® requires competitors to traverse using different configurations of various grips. The rig can be configured to do so many things- ring swing training, different grips (banana, cones, balls, tee handles to mention a few of so many!), monkey bars, lache’, trapeze, cargo net and more. This rig is from the obstacle course favorite- Battlefrog®, the same that is used in the Obstacle Course Racing World Championships! (OCRWC)
Wreck Bags: Our bags, made of pelletized rubber, vary in weight from 25LB up to 60LB. These bags can be used for countless weight bearing exercises and utilize a special technique for lifting to help avoid injury.
Tire Flips: The Tire Flip requires competitors to grip and flip various size tires.
Traverse Rope: The Traverse Rope requires competitors to traverse a suspended horizontal rope without dropping.
Rolling Thunder: Similar to a hurdle, it challenges leg muscles differently since height and distance is needed to compensate for the width of the tires. This Bonefrog OCR® signature obstacle is as much of a mental challenge as it is physical given the specific technique needed to master. This too can be lowered or raised to race height of 5 feet.
The Weaver: This is an old Army obstacle that promotes coordination, strength and is fantastic for functional training. This requires you to go over and under the horizontal bars, and may (but not always!) leave some OCR kisses (aka bruises).
Unstable Bridge: Often seen in American Ninja Warrior ® these two boards can be added to our Battle Frog® Platinum Rig®, which you lache down and across. The instability increases as the boards progress, testing your upper body strength and balance.
The Destroyer: This is a grip heavy obstacle designed to eliminate parkour experts, forcing athletes to jump to the 8 foot green ledge and use your hands to pull up to cleats of varying heights in order to climb over the top of the wall. Again this can be modified based on skill level.
Devils Stairs: The Devil’s Stairs require a competitor to ascend and descend a set of steps vertically by completing a set of pull-ups to get to the top, transition across and come back down. The technique involved minimizes swinging and requires a false-grip (as opposed to a bar grip) making this obstacle more challenging.
The Platinum Rig: The Platinum Rig® requires competitors to traverse using different configurations of various grips. The rig can be configured to do so many things- ring swing training, different grips (banana, cones, balls, tee handles to mention a few of so many!), monkey bars, lache’, trapeze, cargo net and more. This rig is from the obstacle course favorite- Battlefrog®, the same that is used in the Obstacle Course Racing World Championships! (OCRWC)
Soft Sled Pull: This utilizes push and pull movements, and can be modified depending on the athletes’ skill level. We use it on our flat turf as well as the ramp for an added challenge.
Ramp: Our 30° ramp is topped with Astroturf making it great for leg work, carrying the wreck bags, soft sled pull, hill sprints, bear crawls and various other workouts.
Monkey Bars: Our bars are 20 feet long and standard 18 inches apart with horizontal bars along the sides that you can traverse.
Skull Valley: A series of scalable rock-climbing holds where athletes traverse sideways across. We have a lower training section with closer holds and the higher board is race distance apart for more advanced athletes. The final board has grips on both side of the board increasing the difficultly by forcing athletes to rely on a one-hand grip for a longer time.
Cargo Net: This can be added to the rig and can be traversed sideways unless it’s horizontal, which is an added challenge and can be used like monkey bars. This, like many other obstacles, can be adjusted to fit any skill level.
Hercules Hoist: Like it’s name, athletes hoist sandbags of different weights to the top of the obstacle and lower it without dropping. In this obstacle technique and grip is critical given the smaller rope size. All bags can be modified based on ability.
The Climbing Wall: The 8’ Wall is a standard obstacle in Obstacle Course Racing (OCR). Otherworld Fitness’ wall can be raised (to 9 ft) or lowered (to 5ft) to adjust for age and skill levels depending on the athlete. Parkour moves are taught to help master the wall and promote leg muscles and strength.
