fitness attraction, Fitcore Extreme, an exhilarating course designed to push the limits of athleticism and provide

from one step to the next on Quintuple Steps, then move on to test your grip strength on Ledge Hanger, you’ll
stretch your skills as your traverse between two walls for Spiderwalk, there’s no backing out of Jump Hang – will
you choose to go below or pull yourself up and go over the top? You’ll then have to carefully navigate across the

course with the tap of a bell at the top of the Rope Climb. With each obstacle mastered, individuals will gain
confidence, strength, and a renewed sense of achievement. Do you have what it takes to conquer the course?
