GET AN EXTREME POST-WORKOUT CALORIE BURN:
In every obstacle course, Obstacles XRT uses a special form of High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) to keep your body burning calories up to 24 hours after your workout.
RECEIVE MAXIMUM CROSS-TRAINING EFFICIENCY:
Obstacles XRT uses plyometric exercises – fast, powerful movements – designed to use large muscle groups to maximize calorie burn in the shortest amount of time possible.
REAL-TIME CALORIE BURN DASHBOARD:
For each course, you will see an estimate of your calories burned in real-time based on your age, weight, height, and gender.
CHALLENGE A FRIEND:
