Fitness Development (8-12 Minutes)
Challenge courses, or parcourses, are popular throughout the country. Various stations are developed, and the participants move from station to station as they cover the course. The type of movement done between stations can also place demands on the participants’ body systems. Courses can be run for time, or repetitions can be increased to ensure balanced fitness development. Courses should be developed to exercise all parts of the body. A variety of activities, such as stretching, vaulting, agility runs, climbing, hanging and chinning, and crawling, can be included to place demands on all aspects of fitness.
