Make Fitness Fun for Older Children
As children grow older, they sometimes lose interest in traditional playground equipment. If these children aren’t involved with organized sports, they can easily settle into a sedentary lifestyle, putting them at risk for obesity-related illnesses like Type II diabetes. Challenge Course Youth features the same great obstacles as the Pro version and is compliant with playground equipment safety standards for children ages 5-12 — making it a perfect complement to a school playground.

Societal benefits of the Challenge Course Fitness Equipment

The courses are carefully designed to provide a diverse range of fanatical movement between obstacles in a personal race with time. No matter what the age, from eight to eighty, participants are passionately keyed-up to beat their previous time or the time of a fellow competitor, leaving a memorable experience with each course visit.

What’s the 30-second elevator speech?
Major obesity epidemic in the country – kids are not getting enough exercise.

Does Challenge Course Fitness Equipment need to be supervised to insure safety of all users?
The challenge course equipment was designed for park environments that do not require supervision.
Is all the hardware tamper proof and stainless steel?
Yes, In accordance with equipment specification Challenge Course hardware is tamper proof & stainless steel.
The Challenge Course Fitness Equipment system designs – 3000, 4000 and 5000 series
Through the use of pre-configured equipment designs – each course is strategically designed to maximise the user experience and exercise benefits – the Pro and Youth models each have three configurations. In addition Challenge Course will feature a web app that integrates with the preconfigured courses. Through strategic design we have also reduced the distance between events and therefore reduced the overall surfacing and installation costs.
Will there be instructions for the equipment?
The course was developed with an intuitive “Start” and “Finish” course layout. Through our beta testing user groups used the equipment without instructions.
Yes, individual instructions will be provided through:
- Course layout including a brief description of each product – included with every order and installed next to the course starting line.
- The Challenge Course App will feature usage videos – and provide instructions for beginner, intermediate and advanced levels of activity. (App currently in development)
Because Challenge Course is designed to be used as a continuously run obstacle course signage will not be on each piece of equipment instead instructional information for how to use each challenge will be shown on the welcome sign at the beginning of the course
Can the challenge Course Fitness Equipmentbe installed as a community build?
Yes, All Challenge Course equipment with the exception of timing elements can be installed as part of a community build.
Are conflicts between children playing on equipment and people wanting to run the course anticipated?
We acknowledge the playful nature of children. However over the past year of development, we have observed both children and adults run the Challenge Course with one consistent primary objective: Beat their last time! We do not anticipate conflicts between children playing on the equipment and people running the course. The intuitive design of the equipment causes participants to run from event to event and there are no “gathering spots” designed into the equipment.
How will people with disabilities benefit and use the product?
The majority of persons with disabilities have issues with cognition and this majority of users with a disability will benefit tremendously from the neurogenesis (brain development) that occurs as a result of their playful physical activity. Persons with physical disabilities will benefit on a personal level by participation in various events that are appropriate for their ability which may include rolling through the course.
