I am currently building and designing the Vermont Ninja Warrior Training Center at Regal Gymnastics Academy in Essex, VT. My journey started last year when I tried to get on the TV show American Ninja Warrior. With the help of Regal Gym owners Tom and Erika and all my family/friends, I was able to fly to Denver Colorado and try to be a walk on. The short story is that I was not able to run the course because of a fluke snowstorm. Though I was able to be a tester of the course and tried the floating cones. It was one of the best experiences I have ever had.
Since then I have been continuing to run the boys program at Regal Gymnastics and began retrofitting “Markie’s Play Village” into the Vermont Ninja Warrior Training Center in the fall of 2014. This facility will house over 20 individual obstacles designed to make an endless possibilities of training options, levels of difficulty and fun. These obstacles will keep you coming back for more. Hope to see you as I finally finish up this project and we open the center. I am working as hard as I can to open the doors and begin the next step in my training.
Our obstacles include Quintuple Steps, Jumping Bars, Incline Monkey Bars, Double Salmon Ladder, Vertical Bar Room, Spider Jump, Spider Climb, 11 Foot Warped Wall, 14 Foot Warped Wall, Floating Panel Room, Slack Line, Long Trail Peg Wall, Cannonball Alley, Cargo Net, Ring Swing, Climbing Rope, Ring Apparatus, Bell Tower, Upside Down Climbing Wall, Floating Boards, Rings Obstacle
