The Science Behind The Serpent
The Serpent earns its reputation by combining all of the major elements of fitness—strength, speed, balance, endurance, and flexibility—into a single technique-based training system. While geared for fun, The Serpent was not designed to be easy, and as such there are only a handful of athletes who can perfectly and successfully execute one complete pass on The Serpent without making any mistakes. So why all it “The Serpent” anyways? Because The Serpent is a tricky opponent; it’ll test you to your core while making you use your brain as well as your body. It’ll push you to your limits, and just when you’re beginning to think that you can’t make it, The Serpent will let you through only to trap you an instant later in the next obstacle. By constantly pushing the user to approach the course with composure and cunning, The Serpent is capable of being incredibly demanding while subsequently providing massive rewards to those who are willing to put the work in.
The Serpent Explained
Each Serpent obstacle course is built from ultra-high quality materials to stringent specifications for maximum performance and durability. Over 30 feet of high-strength truss provides the backbone to the “grid”, which is then populated with multiple, interchangeable obstacles throughout. This modular design allows users to start and end on any of the obstacles within The Serpent, resulting in customizable training programs that either cover the entire grid as a unit or that highlight individual components. Here at Serpent, we have numerous standard setups for the obstacle course, though we’re also available to help custom build The Serpent to suit your specific needs.
The Serpent can be fully customized in any configuration, as the obstacles contained within have been predetermined to be the most challenging and effective forms of obstacle course-based training. The following elements are available for use within The Serpent:
