GAR is introducing an exciting new program for kids of all ages! GAR’s Ninja Training System is taking the ninja world by storm, offering classes for everyone from the rambunctious preschooler with the wild imagination, to the elementary student who wants to impress his or her friends, to the serious athlete who is training to try out for “that famous TV show.” Walls, ropes, high elements, low elements, trampolines, and more all come into play to create one of the most exciting experiences your child will ever face.

Junior Ninjas—Designed for preschoolers ages 3-5, this program features themed weeks with specific missions, agility training, climbing and traversing, and cool ninja moves.

This program is designed for students ages 12 and over, who want to get serious about conquering the most difficult challenges featured in this viral ninja craze that’s sweeping the globe. For this class, prepare to go home sweaty, exhausted, excited, inspired, and a little sore.

Team Ninja—This is a qualifying class! Once you’ve conquered the graduated skill sets of Ninja Warriors, you can start putting together your most intense workouts as you prepare to be...you know...on TV, or a special agent, or a superhero, or something else so mind-blowingly cool that you can’t tell us about it.

All of our classes are methodically and safely taught by our highly trained and qualified instructors.
