Building an adult obstacle course a la Tough Mudder or Spartan Race or Ninja Warrior is a noble goal, but not everyone wants to spend their weekends constructing a complex network of lumber-heavy structures that fill up your backyard. There are prefabricated adult play structures you can buy or companies you can hire if you want to go that route. If you're handy, you can do it yourself, but, again, it will take a lot of time. I'm more interested in constructing ad hoc adult obstacle courses using simple objects you might already have lying around or can easily obtain at Home Depot. It's a bit more attainable that way for the average person. Adult Obstacle Course Ideas The beauty of these types of obstacle courses is that they are endlessly modular. You can adjust the layout, bringing the jumps closer together or farther apart as you progress in skill and strength. You can bring them to the park or the beach and set up an obstacle course wherever you want. Your creativity flourishes. It can be a different course every single time. Here's some of the supplies I'd recommend getting your hands on and what you can create with them. Balance beams Long pieces of lumber are relatively inexpensive balance beams that are easy to transport. You could attach support pieces underneath on either end running perpendicular to raise the beam off the ground and provide more stability, but you don't really need to. Simply laying the pieces directly on the ground works too. It's also safer, since you're not "falling" off anything. 2x4 if you're not very comfortable on a balance beam 2x3 if you are 1x2 if you really want to learn to balance You can use these for balance beams. You can use them for crawling—bear crawls along a 2x4 is a great exercise and a nice change of pace for an obstacle course. River stones for a balancing pathway Every time you spend a day at the creek or river, grab a few large flat-ish stones and take 'em home. After a dozen visits you'll have enough. Or just head down to the landscaping supply store and fill your truck/trunk with some decent sized stones. Then, make a walking path using the stones that players have to traverse. The key is to get stones that are flat enough that you can stand on them but also have some wobble to them. They should be unsteady but relatively safe, making it a great way to walk across uneven, non-linear "ground" and activate all the muscles and connective tissue in your lower body (and balancing neurons in your brain). You can also jump from stone to stone, as if you were at the creek. For added difficulty, spray them down with the hose first. Fitness/yoga balls Yoga balls get a lot of flack in the "functional fitness" community. They don't deserve it. Sure, I don't recommend doing squats on them or overhead presses. That's silly, and dangerous. … Continue reading "How to Build an Adult Obstacle Course"
