[prMac.com] Chicago, Illinois - Barracuda Partners, developer of new-to-world health and fitness applications with more than 50 thousand downloads to date, today announces the launch of Obstacles XRT – Extreme Reality Training. Available in the AppStore for iPhone for the limited time promotional price of $4.99, the app transforms wherever you are into an obstacle course. Designed in coordination with expert fitness trainers, Obstacles XRT makes exercise fly by with highly engaging obstacle courses, including trekking over tires, escaping from quicksand, and sliding under fences.
“Traditional exercise routines are becoming an outdated practice,” says Todd Musgrove, Managing Director at Barracuda Partners. “The success of programs like Zumba and Kinect PlayFit, show that consumers are seeking options that make exercise more enjoyable. With no equipment required, Obstacles XRT's body weight based exercises can be performed anywhere, anytime."
For the busy mobile user on the go, the gym isn’t always an appealing or time efficient option. Study after study confirms that people are more likely to continue with an exercise program that they find enjoyable. Obstacles XRT's progressively challenging obstacle courses gives users exciting new obstacles to take on each day.
Transformational Exercise Experience
• Using only body weight exercises , Obstacles XRT has numerous challenging obstacle courses – from beginner to advanced levels
• Obstacles XRT can be used in any open space, whether it’s a living room, hotel room, outdoors, or conference room
• Offering hundreds of unique obstacle course layouts through a proprietary randomization engine, Obstacles XRT creates challenging obstacle courses featuring high-definition video and audio instruction
• Uses a progressive form of High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) to maximize post-workout calorie burn in the shortest amount of time
“Essentially, we wanted people to look forward to their exercise sessions,” said Brian Atz, Managing Director at Barracuda Partners. “Today’s busy iPhone users want to stay fit but can't find the time or lack the motivation to keep up with their exercise routine. With Obstacles XRT, we wanted to provide an efficient and engaging exercise experience, anywhere, anytime."
