Ninja Warrior Training in Progress

Are you ready to conquer the ninja warrior course?


Just Play is launching the Ninja Warrior Academy. Led by Coach Felix and the ninja team, the academy will focus on fitness and techniques to help students take on and conquer our all-new ninja courses! Our coaches are qualified personal trainers and fitness professionals, with a passion for obstacles.

For our youngest recruits, our fully-qualified gymnastics coaches, led by Coach Amy, will be working on fundamentals of movement and gross motor skills, to help them develop their coordination, flexibility and agility.

Training for the ninja warrior course involves fitness, strength and skills work, and commitment over a period of time to see improvement. As well as being able to take on more advanced obstacles and improve your course times, you will also improve your overall fitness and wellbeing. Whether your goal is to compete in the Ninja Nationals leagues and tournaments, or simply to have fun on the courses, you’ll see rewards from the effort you put in.


Our Ninja Academy is divided by age and ability. Initially students will enroll into the relevant age group, but may progress to more advanced levels depending upon their performance.

We operate a 10 week academy programme, addressing the fundamentals of obstacle course racing: speed, strength and stamina, as well as technical lessons on specific courses. How to tackle the warped wall, exercises to improve grip strength, flexibility and speed: it is all covered.
