Caleb has turned his passion into his vocation. He has become known in the Ninja community as one of the top course designers in the nation, and he is responsible for leading the team and great customer experience for which Rock Solid Warrior has become known.
Caleb first worked at a gym when he was 17, doing whatever he was asked to do while studying to be a personal trainer. He added to his own training by studying and training others. He continuously studies, designs, and builds obstacles and courses. He started with his own “front yard” rig, created the amazing Mobile Ninja Warrior rig that had been used at public events and by some professional Ninjas for their own events. It is now housed at Nick’s Flippin Kids in Clayton where we’ve started our Rock Solid Ninja Kids program. He’s designed our Rock Solid Ninja Rigs packages for your backyard. In addition to helping others around the country with occasional designs, Caleb has been the designer and master builder of both our Fuquay and South Apex facilities.
His skill in both facility and course design has been nationally recognized by Ethan Swanson and Chris DiGangi who founded the Ninja Sport Championship series. Ethan & Chris hand-pick the best facilities and course designers to host their qualifiers and chose Rock Solid Warrior / Fuquay and Caleb to host one of the six national qualifiers in Season 1 (2021-22), and were so impressed with the facility, Caleb, and the team that they chose Rock Solid Warrior / South Apex facility to host their Season 2 (2022-23) Championship Finals.
Caleb has been Rock Climbing for several years. The idea of combining some Rock Climbing with a Ninja Warrior gym has been his dream that he has been preparing for – and has been prepared for – since he was a child.
In Ninja Warrior competition circles, Caleb is known as “The Ninja of the Auer”. In addition to competing and often winning or placing in local competitions, Caleb made it to the World Finals of the National Ninja League and has appeared on Season 11 (2019) of American Ninja Warrior. In his rookie season on the show, Caleb qualified at the Atlanta City Qualifiers, and then turned in an amazing run at the Atlanta City Finals, and fell just short of finishing stage 1 at the Season Finals in Las Vegas. In 2022, he joined his wife and brother (Hannah and Joshua) as “The Ninjas of the Auer” to win the American Ninja Warrior Family Championship special.
In addition to his long record of athletic accomplishments and training experience, he has a degree in Business Administration and a certificate in Criminal Justice. While being trained as a Police Explorer at the Fuquay Police Department, he competed at Winterfest in Gatlinburg with Explorers from many states, gaining a bronze and silver medal in “Physical Fitness and Tactics”, before deciding to take another career path. However, he gained much respect for those who serve in the Police and Fire Departments, EMS, and military. Therefore, we honor all of those public servants with a 20% discount.
