Fitness in nature with the balance-Parcours

The balance parcours has great appeal and is the classic for playful training of balance and reaction skills.

Passing the three balancing segments of varying difficulty is great fun and attracts not only children but also adults. Everyone wants to give it a try.

Instructions for use

The balance course is made up of three different sets of balancing equipment with different difficulty levels, each 4 m long.

Moving Beam

A stainless steel beam mounted on a frame that enables movements from side to side.

The moving beam requires high levels of concentration and body tension in order to maintain balance over the whole distance.

Slack Rope

A one-strand rope set at a height of 30 cm between two stainless steel posts. Like the slackline, the slack rope trains the sensorimotor system, but provides the possibility of training in other positions.

There are a range of positions that can be adopted with the slack rope that improve balance in a number of ways. The slack rope enables you to train the sensorimotor system at your own personal performance limits.

Fixed Beam

Balancing along the stainless steel fixed beam is more easy than walking along the balancing beam or the slack rope.

Walk along the fixed beam, moving beam or the slackline as desired to improve your balance. Support yourself on the handrail if required.

Change direction.

Alternative: try to keep your balance while moving forwards, backwards or sideways.
