A few weeks ago, a new class was added - Ninja Challenge. The boys got to try a few classes free in exchange for my additional social media promotion. The boys have actually enjoyed the class so much that they have decided to stick with it, enroll and make it their new thing.
Ninja Challenge is an obstacle course based program incorporating basic gymnastics skills, conditioning and flexibility for boys and girls ages 4-18. What I kind of love is that other New England gyms are also working on developing this program ... which will create competitive opportunities in NH, MA, CT, RI and VT.
The boys can't wait to compete.
The program incorporates standard gymnastics apparatus including vault, rings, bars, balance beams and Tumble-Trak. Other specialized ninja training equipment is also used, such as cargo nets, traverse walls, slack lines, ropes and ladders. Each portion of the obstacle courses also includes corresponding conditioning and flexibility stations. The desired result of this program is to improve children’s strength, flexibility and all-around athleticism.
I think the new cargo net is everyone's favorite!
The rings and the rock wall are something else they can't seem to get enough of!
I sort of wish they did an adult class because I would be all over that! Class Times for 4 - 6 year old Ninjas are Fridays from 4-5pm. 7+ year old Ninjas meet Fridays from 5-6pm. Classes started last month, but there is currently open enrollment.
