In every obstacle course, Obstacles XRT uses a special form of High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) to keep your body burning calories up to 24 hours after your workout.
RECEIVE MAXIMUM CROSS-TRAINING EFFICIENCY:
Obstacles XRT uses plyometric exercises – fast, powerful movements – designed to use large muscle groups to maximize calorie burn in the shortest amount of time possible.
REAL-TIME CALORIE BURN DASHBOARD:
For each course, you will see an estimate of your calories burned in real-time based on your age, weight, height, and gender.
CHALLENGE A FRIEND:

**WARNING: OBSTACLES XRT IS AN EXTREME WORKOUT PROGRAM – REST WHEN YOU NEED TO **
This app doesn't have many exercises as I hoped it would be but with no equipment needed, this app does provide good exercises. It uses your body information to count the calories you could burn in each exercise, shows you actual video so you can do exactly the same, very neat and way cheaper than many other fitness apps.
I think it will be better if developer add "skip" button because I want to watch the whole exercise before doing it and watching 3' of warm up doesn't make me happy
This is such a great workout app. It provides clear instructions and a video showing the workout. There are multiple levels for beginners to experienced athletes. It has a great interface and my favorite part is that it doesn't require any additional tools, you can just use your floor. Really really worth buying if you're serious about getting into shape.
Not what I expected.
This app is not really as great as I was expecting from all the other reviews. The workouts are all very similar--the same moves just put in different order. And they are mostly all moves you already know, just given a different name to make it feel like an obstacle course (high knees, squats, etc). I have done 3 workouts and am already bored with the app, and the advanced workouts are not that challenging. I would probably not recommend this app to anyone other than someone new to exercise.
