A Fitness App for Wherever You're At
Barracuda Partners, developer of innovative health and fitness applications, in partnership with BolderImage, a leading mobile development company, today announced the launch of Obstacles XRT – Extreme Reality Training. The iPhone app transforms wherever you are into a fitness obstacle course and is available in the Apple App Store for the limited time promotional price of $.99.
Designed in coordination with expert fitness trainers, Obstacles XRT makes exercise fly by with highly engaging obstacle courses that include 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“Traditional exercise routines are becoming an outdated practice,” says Todd Musgrove, Managing Director at Barracuda Partners.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. Studies confirm 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.

“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.
