PE Activity #28 - "Obstacle Course"

OVERVIEW: An obstacle course is a fun and challenging way to get your heart pumping and improve your overall fitness. It involves a series of obstacles that test your endurance, strength, and agility.


  • Cones or markers to mark the course

  • Various obstacles such as tires, ropes, hurdles, balance beams, and agility ladders

  • Mats or padding for safety

SETUP: Find a suitable space, such as a field or gym, to set up the obstacle course. Use cones or markers to mark out the course and place the obstacles in a strategic order to create a challenging course.


  1. Begin by warming up with some light jogging or stretching exercises.

  2. Start at the beginning of the course and complete each obstacle in order.

  3. You can time yourself and try to beat your previous record or compete against friends to see who can complete the course the fastest.

  4. After completing the course, cool down with some stretching exercises.

MAKE IT EASIER: If you're just starting out, you can make the obstacle course easier by:

  • Reducing the number of obstacles

  • Making the obstacles less challenging by lowering the hurdles or using smaller tires

  • Allowing more time to complete the course

  • Offering modifications for certain obstacles

MAKE IT HARDER: If you want to increase the difficulty of the obstacle course, you can:

  • Increase the number of obstacles

  • Make the obstacles more challenging by raising the hurdles or using larger tires

  • Time yourself and try to beat your previous record

  • Incorporate different types of exercises such as burpees, jumping jacks, or push-ups in between each obstacle.
