Build your Ninja skills

Rock Solid Ninja Warrior classes

The show “American Ninja Warrior” has made many wonder how they could train on obstacles like that.

What many don’t know is that the show has inspired a sport that has taken on a life of its own.  Whether or not you ever get the opportunity to be on a show like “American Ninja Warrior”, we are the place for you to begin.

At Rock Solid Warrior, we offer Ninja classes designed for you!

Many of our coaches have competed on American Ninja Warrior, and are very active in the Ninja Sport. Out of their passion and experience, they’ll work with you to help you accomplish your goals! Our classes are structured to meet each athlete where they are and take them as far as they want to go!

Planning Your Classes & Schedules

We will typically post our schedule a month or more in advance. And though we expect each individual will pick the same day(s) each week for classes, they can also drop in on another class if they miss one.

Wondering which classes will be right for you? We can help you decide—and we evaluate each student each month to discuss if/when they should move to another class to be challenged more (or less). Just stop by or give us a call.

Classes for all age groups and abilities

Nothing beats experience when it comes to growing your skills and confidence in ninja warrior obstacle courses. So while open gym time is always an option—and is important for honing your skills—classes can be invaluable for showing you how to move, hold, and progress faster and more safely.

You’ll be in good hands: we hear all the time how much energy and enthusiasm our team of ninja instructors and coaches adds to guests’ experience. That’s because each one has a personal passion for the sports and loves to share them! And all our classes are overseen by our Pro Ninja Sport veterans and other experienced trainers, to ensure top results.

Levels 1-4 (4-15 year olds)

Just because you didn’t start when you were small, doesn’t mean you can’t start now.  We have competitors in the sport in their 70s.  Whether or not you choose to compete, this is a great way to get fit and have fun.

Teen/Adult Beginner Ninja

You are never too old to start Ninja Warrior training, for fun or for serious exercise.

Whether you were a former athlete or just want to start some fun exercise, we’ll get you started in the basic skills and conditioning you’ll need.

For those who take to it quickly and want more instruction, we’ll provide more challenging obstacles, but for those who will need a little more time, we’ll help you along. And, for those who just want some basic instruction before (or after) spending time in Open Gym, this class could be for you.

Ninja Fit

Ninja Fit is a fitness class for teens and adults which stretches and strengthens the muscles that are most needed (legs, core, and upper body) to take on Ninja courses, incorporating a variety of ninja obstacles in many of the exercises where both strength and technique are developed.

It’s never too late to get Ninja Fit. You might even meet our 60-year-old owner who is planning to compete in the Ninja Carolina League next season.

Ready for Something More Advanced?

Though not considered a class, we have “Ninja Nights” where challenging courses are set up by our Pro coaches.  Come train with the best.
