It includes both an Adult and Kid Obstacle Zones, a 100-meter elevated indoor race track, functional and obstacle training classes, five-star level changing rooms, and a health food lounge. Among the obstacles inside are quintuple angles steps, monkey bars, five-foot wall, balance beam, small wheels, nine-foot wall, island hops, gymnast rings, weaver, cliffhanger, tarzan swing, and the famous wave wall—all designed to push one’s limits. 

Further, PHO offers three types of group classes. Free popular classes are suited for those looking for yoga classes, HIIT, and pilates, while functional training classes work best for mobility. Those who are training for their next obstacle course race can take advantage of obstacle course training classes.

It also has an adjunct facility called Physio-PHOrtress which provides outcome-based health programs for obstacle course racers through sports-specific individualized assessment and intervention. 

PHO employs licensed and accredited personnel within the facility, offering services on performance enhancement, recovery program, physical therapy rehabilitation, and newbie profiling.

Pretty Huge Obstacles ambassador Noel Agra described obstacle course racing as a functional sport that involves a lot of running, swimming, and climbing walls, that makes one feel energetic.

“Conquering obstacles makes you feel like a kid again; and Filipinos are known to persevere and to never give up. I believe that by conquering physical obstacles, you get to conquer the mental and harder obstacles in life,” he added.

PHO is located at 2/F Civic Center, SM Aura Premier, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City. Go to for more information.
