If you have been searching for a unique way to get in shape, train with like-minded individuals, and a way to indulge your competitive side while having fun, you’ve come to the right place.
Obstacle Course Racing (OCR) is a growing sport recognized for athletes overcoming physical and mental challenges while getting dirty and having fun in nature. Tap into your competitive side while surrounded by others who are racing individually or as part of a team. The camaraderie of training for such races is unmatched!
We are the only gym in northern Delaware with a strong focus on Obstacle Course Racing.
The Basement OCR Team competes in various OCR races both locally and across the East Coast. In 2015, eleven members of The Basement OCR Team qualified to compete in Cincinnati, OH at The OCR World Championships, “the first independently global championship for the burgeoning sport of OCR.”
We offer a variety of classes that are designed to prepare participants for races through functional fitness by improving strength, power, skill and endurance.
Annually, The Basement CT holds the Basement OCR Games, a fitness competition incorporating strength, cardio, and skill movements and challenges found at OCRs. Individual and team awards are given out to the top athletes and teams, including medals and prize packages. Movements may include, but are not limited to: 4ft. and 6ft. walls, farmer’s carry, traverse wall, atlas stone carry, kettle bell and med ball movements, sandbag carry, rowing, running, rope climbing, spear throwing, etc. Anyone is invited to participate, and all are invited to watch and cheer on the competitors!
