USA Ninja Challenge announced the opening of its Katy location at 22564 Franz Road. The center opens on Monday, October 22, 2018, and is the first gym of its kind for children to open in Texas.
Inspired by the popular television show, the 7,000 square foot gym has equipment specially designed to encourage kids to conquer various challenges in a fun, safe environment. USA Ninja Challenge Katy is part of the franchisee group USA Ninja Challenge.
An Obstacle Course Training Program
USA Ninja Challenge is a year-round obstacle fitness program that combines aspects of gymnastics, climbing, cross training, and track and field for children ages 4 through 17 years old. Trained instructors guide the athletes through a curriculum based on a gymnastics foundation that helps build strength, agility, and endurance.
Various obstacles at USA Ninja Challenge include a warped wall, rock and chimney walls, cargo nets, peg boards, slack lines, ropes, quintuple steps, hanging ladder, swinging rings, cannon balls, ring toss, barrels, and other kid-friendly challenges inspired by the show. Every child is included in becoming part of the ninja community.
Improving Strength and Athleticism
The lead instructor works from a lesson plan to provide safe and effective training for each participant. The curriculum has six levels to master, and each level has 27 different skills. “I’m excited to bring USA Ninja Challenge and its outstanding training program for kids to Katy,” said Tom Pielech, owner of USA Ninja Challenge Katy. Students master curriculum levels and then progress to a higher level of achievement.
Ninja skills will include jumping, climbing, swinging, traversing, balancing, and floor skills. Kids demonstrate their mastery of a skill and then advance to the next level of training. All students progress according to their own abilities and are never in competition with other class members. Students commit to the program one month at a time and can join the program at any time. The desired result of this program is to improve children’s strength, flexibility and all-around athleticism.
Classes, Birthdays, and Summer Camps
Classes are divided into specific age categories from ages 4 to 17 and are led by trained instructors. USA Ninja Challenge also has party rooms for events such as birthday parties and athletic team celebrations. The center will also have week long day camps in summer and various school break camps as well.
