Caleb Auer

Caleb has turned his passion into his vocation.  He has become known in the Ninja community as a respected ninja athlete and one of the top course designers in the nation.  He is responsible for leading the way in the great facilities and great customer experience for which Rock Solid Warrior has become known.

As a lifelong athlete, the idea of creating a gym was a dream that he had been preparing for – and had been prepared for – since he was a teenager.  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 “Tactical Fitness”, before deciding to take another career path.  Caleb first worked at a gym when he was 17, doing whatever he was asked to do while studying to be a personal trainer.  In 2017, he began to compete as a Ninja athlete.

Caleb has personally designed and built rigs for all three of our locations. His construction experience started from a young age as he helped build the Auer family’s custom home from the ground up, and added in studies in graphic and building design. His first “Mobile Ninja Warrior” backyard rig is now housed at our Clayton Rock Solid Warrior Kids location, and his ninja rigs for backyards, as well as our facilities, included ground-breaking techniques for easy adjustability that have been used across the nation. He quickly became known for his creative and excellent courses when we started hosting competitions.

Before it even opened, our Apex facility (and Caleb) were hand-picked to host the Ninja Sport Championship Finals in 2023.

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, where he advanced to the finals in his rookie season. In 2022, he led the family (including his wife, Hannah, and brother, Josh) in winning the American Ninja Warrior Family Championship.

Caleb has a heart to serve and love others, alongside his wife Hannah, and has the gift of compassion. He works with several special needs ninjas to help them be the best they can be. Through his earlier training, Caleb (and the rest of the family) 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 on many of our offerings.

In addition to his long record of athletic accomplishments, course design/building, and training experience, he has a degree in Business Administration and a certificate in Criminal Justice.

When Caleb isn’t working at Rock Solid Warrior, you can find him on the golf course, having adventures with his wife and their friends, and taking on new athletic challenges, whether it’s golf, basketball, weight-lifting, Jiu Jitsu, rock climbing, or cliff jumping.

Caleb encourages his staff, his friends, and his students to, “Make time for others and for yourself. Do hard things and grow through the struggle. Do no harm, live and let live, and love over everything.”
