GameTime is excited to announce an update to its popular outdoor obstacle course line, Challenge Course. You can now mix and match any combination of equipment to create a course that is all your own. The new modular approach allows users to select from 13 fun and challenging obstacles that fit their space and budget.
Challenge Course was introduced in 2015 and has since become the most popular obstacle course product in North America. There are two series of products: Youth and Pro. The Youth Series is designed to be compliant with ASTM standards for childhood playground equipment and is suitable for users ages 5 to 12. The Pro Series is compliant with ASTM standards for outdoor fitness equipment and is appropriate for users ages 13 and up. Both series are designed to offer a well-rounded workout and feature obstacles that enhance users' speed, agility, strength and balance. Precision timing systems and/or a timed 40-yard dash are available in the Youth and Pro.
The appeal of Challenge Course is evident by the dozes of courses installed so far. Schools, public parks and professional sports teams have embraced the Challenge Course concept because it encourages families and communities to be active together.
"Over the past four years we've seen communities across North America create fun, exciting fitness spaces everyone can enjoy," said Jon Walker, product manager for GameTime. "These are community destinations that appeal to every generation and people of every fitness level."
The preconfigured courses still exist for customers who do not want to design their own course. The Youth and Pro Series offer age-appropriate equipment that requires 3,000 - 5,000 square feet for installation.
We tried to create courses that work well for any community," said Walker. "But there's often an instance where someone needs a course that's a little smaller or uses different obstacles. That's where the modular design option is a real benefit. Now you can create your course, your way."
