More and More, we are starting to see people in the fitness industry come to us with an interest in Obstacle Training. Why? Because Obstacle training is one of the most exciting and fun ways to get a full body workout. On top of that, it’s great for all ages.
It is so important to look forward to your daily training regiment. Dreading a workout is no fun. In short, Obstacle training is fun! Recently we have worked with several fitness facilities who were opening new locations and wanted to dedicate a substantial amount of space to Ninja. Some of the facilities are even going as far as creating several different Ninja areas, each catering to different age groups and skill levels. The video below shows a design we created for a customer that was looking to do that very thing.
Do you blame them? Seriously, would you rather do 10 pull-ups or rip through a set on the salmon ladder? Same muscles being worked but I can assure you one is a lot more fun than the other. We have over 60 other obstacles each which targets a certain muscle group or multiple groups depending on how they are used. You can check out the selection HERE!
When you work with a large customer base with facility sizes ranging from 1000 square feet to 80,000 square feet, there certainly isn’t a standard when it come to a Ninja solution. Some clubs are looking to simply fill a small dedicated space with the most efficient and budget friendly setup possible. Aesthetics may not be as big of a concern for these customers. They simply want to get the most bang for their buck and provide a fun and safe course for their Ninjas.
Then their are customers who are really going for a “look.” Functionality is certainly important, but they really want to also present a wow factor for their Ninjas.
Lastly, there is a group that falls somewhere in between. So, how do we serve such a broad range of requirements? Well, we felt it was important to have a framing system that would appeal to each one of these 3 groups. So, we created a 3 tier course solution for our customers
Tier 1: Budget Friendly, Smaller Footprint, Aesthetically pleasing to youth in it’s colorful appearance
Tier 2: Slightly higher in pricing, small footprint. Combines the look of the Tier 1 frame with a TV show like frame
Tier 3: Highest priced of the group, largest footprint. Has the wow factor in it’s large TV show look
