Here’s some great news for those of us seeking novel ways to stick to our new year’s fitness resolutions. Toronto is now home to the country’s first fully indoor obstacle course, which means that hanging from monkey bars or swinging from a rope isn’t just for recess time anymore. Pursuit OCR—the acronym stands for obstacle course racer—is a 10,000-square-foot facility with 19 different challenges in a 160-yard-long course for all skill levels. Facilitators, whose backgrounds range from acrobatics to gymnastics, can help guide participants through a ball crawl, ball pit, lateral climbing wall, cargo net climbs, rings and hurdles. Every Sunday from 7 a.m. to noon, families can hit the obstacle course for the Play Your Best kids series. Also on the premises is the city’s first cryosauna, which sees individuals encased in a chamber that’s -110 to -150 degrees Celsius for 2.5 minutes to decrease inflammation and lactic acid build-up.  —Linda Luong
