Pro Camp III Recap
Nine Benefits of Ninja Training
Ninja training offers kids and young adults a multitude of benefits and provides a fun way for them to train. Ninja classes will make your child a well-rounded athlete, and teach them skills that are important in all other sports. Strength, agility, body awareness, balance, flexibility, perseverance, accountability, and respect are all skills that are useful in other sports. Your child will build confidence and learn the positive effect of overcoming obstacles inside and the gym!
Our Ninja classes are led by instructors who teach the skills necessary to complete an obstacle course successfully and safely.
Running through an obstacle course and practicing the skills it requires to do so is a full-body workout. Not only do kids build both upper and lower body strength in our classes, but a strong core as well. Building strong core strength is like building a strong foundation for your child. From a young age, improving core strength can promote good posture and better motor skills. Kids are having fun climbing, jumping and swinging over obstacles, as they build great core strength and work new muscle areas that they never have before! By increasing the stability in their joints, students are also decreasing their risk of injury. As you may have noticed, Ninja is more than just strength alone.
3. Body Awareness
4. Balance and Coordination
7. Learn To Fall Safely
8. Accountability and Respect
9. It’s a Lot of FUN!
There Are No Winners And Losers
While there are ninja competitions for kids, Ninja Warrior classes can be as competitive or not as your kids want it to be. Many kids like to set personal goals, such as completing the course faster, doing a higher number of pull-ups, etc. Because of this, their biggest competitor is themselves, and there is not that aggressive competition as you see with most youth sports.
You Don’t Have To Be a Natural Athlete
Every kid is different. If your son or daughter has tried traditional youth sports such as soccer and basketball and found that they either don’t enjoy them or aren’t naturally gifted at them, physical activity such as playing at a ninja gym can be a great outlet for their fitness needs. While certain physical traits such as balance and strength are helpful on ninja courses, any kid can participate and build self-esteem on the obstacles while developing their physical skills here at Ultimate Ninjas.

What our customershave to say about us
We just threw my daughter's 6th birthday party here and it was wonderful! They were very helpful and accommodating. Our guests had a great time and the staff assigned to help our party could not have been nicer. I would recommend this for a party venue (or just a fun open play/class activity) to anyone!Hannah B.
I brought my 11YO son today for open gym and he absolutely loved it! It definitely became more crowded after 12:30, but the staff was great and offered assistance when requested. The obstacles were just like the show and are easy to try, but challenging to master. We will be back for sure!Amy J.
