Why Workout When You Can PLAYOUT!

Playout’s first fitness card game, “Playout: The Game” turns bodyweight exercises into games and competitions that you can play anywhere, anytime. The game saw a great deal of success as a training tool, so founder and creator Eddie Kovel, who is also a Pro OCR Racer, decided to create an OCR specific deck to help racers train for the toughest obstacles and terrain.

“Looking for a new addition to your training program? Playout’s new OCR Card Game contains 30 challenging bodyweight exercises that train you to conquer the terrain and obstacles you’ll find in a typical race. The game will help you take your training to the next level, and get your friends excited about OCR! Click on the link to support and share!”- Eddie Kovel (Founder and CEO at Playout, LLC.)

All Cards MockupfixWhat exactly is the OCR Card Game you ask?

According to their Kickstarter page, Playout: The OCR Card Game is:

“The OCR Card Game trains you for the toughest obstacles and terrain found in an OCR, while simultaneously giving you the experience of racing through a challenging obstacle course, using nothing but your body and a bar. The game is designed for the roughest and toughest of racers, as well as for the newbie looking to get in shape for their first race, and everyone in between.

Another reason we’re creating this game is to introduce people to the sport of Obstacle Course Racing. Most people who haven’t tried an OCR say that they would need to train before running one, but don’t know how to train and can’t get over the intimidation. In reality, many people run races for the first time when they are quite out of shape, but become motivated to train after their first race, so don’t limit yourself if you’ve never done one! No matter your situation, you now have the perfect training tool! Even if you never plan on running an OCR, this game will serve as an amazing training tool for general fitness and fun competitions with friends and family.”
