I’m sure you’ve heard of the incredibly popular show “American Ninja Warrior.” If you’re like me, you saw that show and said, “I wanna do that.” What many people probably don’t realize is that it takes a great deal of training to be successful on the obstacles. Luckily, there is a gym for training ninja warrior athletes of all ages in Winchester, Virginia.

This gym has all of the essentials. From the warped wall to gymnastics equipment, there are many things you can work on and train with. If you want to work on upper body strength and grip strength for the show, they have bars and rock walls you can use. With a little ingenuity, you can do parkour by using mats and blocks to learn vaults, flips and wall runs like in the parkour videos on YouTube. Even if you don’t want to learn all of the flashy moves and don’t want to be on the show, it’s still a good way to get in shape. It’s fun, it’s practical and it’s cheap. It’s only ten dollars an hour, which, compared to some other ninja warrior and parkour gyms, is a really good price.

There are multiple coaches working during the open gym times. Most of them have been on the show either competing or cheering on friends. One of the coaches is actually from Strasburg. The coaches are super helpful in teaching techniques and being very motivational. When the coaches are busy, there are normally other ninja warrior athletes ready and willing to help.

At the gym, they hold many competitions and there is a whole league of competitions all over America. They have multiple age groups in the leagues and competitions, so anyone of any age can compete. The league has one competition every week at different gyms from California to New Jersey. The next competition is on November 18th, so mark your calendars to watch this epic display of athleticism!  

The gym is called East Coast Gymnastic and Cheer. The address is 1810 Roberts Street Winchester, VA. To contact the gym about open gym times, call 540-539-6198 or follow their Facebook page EastCoastGymnastics.
