There’s a Ninja Warrior training level for you
Have you ever wondered what it takes to “beat that wall” and “hit the buzzer” on the show “American Ninja Warrior?” We can help you answer that question for yourself!
At Rock Solid Warrior we offer many of these same types of obstacles and training, geared to just about every level from the littlest tykes (from 5 years old), to athletes striving to make the American Ninja Warrior adult and junior circuits.
And if you just want to put a little ninja warrior workout into your fitness routine—we’ve got you covered too!
At 8,000 sq. ft. our Ninja Warrior training gym is large enough that we can offer multiple classes at once, at beginner, intermediate and advanced levels—so you can typically bring the whole family at once.
Our Kids Intro Class is designed for ages 5-7, our Level 1-3 classes are designed for ages 5-13. Our goal is to have a 6:1 student to coach ratio. We always start classes with a warm up and then a lesson on how to fall. From there we typically have 3 stations with 3 obstacles and an exercise. Coaches will guide the children through the stations spotting them, and giving them tips throughout.
If you are 14+ please consider checking out “ninja night” where we set up two courses, one with a lower level of difficulty, and one with higher level of difficulty, as well as various side balance and upper body challenges. If you aren’t quite ready for that then you can start with the “Adult Intro to Ninja” where you will learn the basic techniques, terminology, safety, and how to construct a “ninja workout.”
Upcoming Ninja Warrior Classes
What’s in a Ninja Warrior obstacle course?
You’ll find a huge variety of obstacles, many similar to what you’ve seen on the show. And though you won’t splash into a lighted pool of water, our stacks of soft blue safety mats make a nice landing as you’re learning.
The ninja warrior sport is much more than just one televised show. You can train and compete in:
- speed courses
- ninja vs. ninja courses
- endurance courses
- balance courses
- upper body courses
- and combined courses
Our coaches have trained and competed in all of these courses, and we’re passionate about helping you learn and keeping your experience fresh. That’s why we change the obstacles and the courses each week—so you’re never bored, and your mind stays as sharp as your physical skills.
Ready for Ninja Warrior competition?
Many people don’t realize that there’s a thriving sport of “Ninja Warrior” styled obstacle course racing. In fact, it is the fastest-growing individual sport in the nation.
If you decide to get involved in competition, you’ll be in the right place. We are one of the few ninja gyms who regularly certify our coaches and trainers. And our instructors and coaches are overseen by veterans of American Ninja Warrior and experienced trainers.
For those who want to make this their sport, we are proud participants in the southeast division of the Athlete Warrior Games conceived by Tyler Yamauchi (the “Muscle Ball” ninja) and others.
We’ll also provide opportunities for our gym members to train for and compete in the United Ninja Athlete Association and the National Ninja League if they so desire.
Each of these “big three” leagues has their own set of rules and styles, but the obstacles are the same and they are all working toward making obstacle course racing an Olympic sport. There are age divisions for kids as young as 6 years old, and “masters” divisions for those who might be considered past their athletic prime, and every age in between.
It is easy to get hooked on the sport, both as a participant and a spectator! If you’re not sure of the best way to get started, just stop by or give us a call at 919-307-7448. You can find details on pricing for classes, open gym and cost-effective membership options here.
