You have most likely heard of the show “American Ninja Warrior” – with wacky obstacles and athletes competing for the title. This heart pumping obstacle course includes climbing, hanging, sometimes falling into water after losing a grip. So, you want to be one? Having the ability to go through a Ninja Warrior course takes agility, strength, focus + more! Here are some tips to get you started…

  1. Don’t put the cart before the horse – or – in our terms – build a solid foundation before you start:

Like any sport, a solid foundation is key to accomplishing success. In regard to Ninja Fitness training, the foundation can include:

  • Learning to balance
  • Building strength
  • Increasing stamina

Train these 3 core platforms before you even explore an obstacle course. These are taught through daily practice and can be a phenomenal stepping stone to accomplishing the actual course.

2. Gear Up

Hanging onto a monkey bar or swinging from ropes, it is important to wear the right attire. Ask your coach what the approved clothing is, generally it includes:

  • Closed toe athletic shoes
  • Grip socks
  • Comfortable gym clothes

3. Ready! Set! Go!

You have now met your foundation goals, dressed in appropriate attire and ready to start the obstacle course. Be prepared to experience a sport like no other:

  • Obstacles can include a “salmon ladder,” “warped wall,” “ring toss,” “floating boards” and more!
  • Bring water and be courageous – try new things but always make sure safety is first.
