Building forts indoors and romping on playgrounds outdoors are classic ways to satisfy your child’s need to play and explore. But if your kids want to turn your house into an obstacle course, you may need another outlet. That’s where gyms that channel the TV show American Ninja Warrior come in.
For the uninitiated, American Ninja Warrior pits competitors against a series of increasingly difficult obstacle courses in a bid to make it to the finals and be crowned the American Ninja Warrior. The challenges are really tough and require skills like speed, stamina, agility, balance, and strength to complete.
If your kids are inspired by the show, or just need a productive way to channel their energy, there are five Boston-area gyms with obstacle courses perfect for aspiring ninja warriors.
