Are you looking for ninja warrior classes in Houston? We have a list of Ninja Warrior gyms and obstacle courses in Houston.

Does your kid constantly attempt to do backflips off the couch and use your body as their personal climbing rope? There are a surprising number of locations to try out Ninja Warrior classes in Houston. Then you may be raising a little American Ninja Warrior. The show of the same name pits competitors against each other as they attempt to complete an obstacle course in the fastest time - from leaping on small platforms to climbing incredibly steep and daunting rock walls. 

That show has sparked a movement that encourages kids to spend their free time perfecting their parkour moves and gaining grip strength. This active hobby is a welcome change from the big kid and preteen video game obsession. Ninja Warrior is for all ages of kids, from toddlers to teenagers. Several dedicated Ninja Warrior gyms in the greater Houston area offer Ninja Warrior classes for kids, and you can usually find a class on any day of the week. In addition, some gyms offer a range of gymnastics programs alongside Ninja Warrior facilities and classes, so your kids can try other gym activities as well. Finally, your kids can simply drop into indoor adventure playgrounds and try out their ninja obstacle courses.

Many of these Houston Ninja Warrior locations are also great birthday party venues, and offer holiday camps and Parent's Nights Out. Want to try out some other fun physical activities?
