Can I just show up for class? All first-time visitors must make a reservation; please call us at (916) 258-5425. After attending your first class, you don’t need a reservation for future classes.

Is your class structured or open gym? We only offer structured classes for kids, supervised by our Ninja coaches. Adults classes are structured as well. However, we also offer open gym to adults with a membership who have attended Ninja classes or safety orientation. Open gym is by appointment only, based on availability of the room.

Are you an Ultimate Ninja Athlete Association (UNAA) gym? Yes, we’re an official UNAA gym. We also host UNAA qualifier tournaments.

What kind of exercises can I expect to do?
Our Ninja Obstacle Course provides a full-body workout! You’ll have a chance to exercise every area, from your lower body (such as on our ground obstacle course) to your upper body (for example, on the monkey bars).

What should I bring to class?
Bring a towel and water bottle (we also have a drinking fountain).

How long are the classes?
On weekdays, Mini Ninja and Kid Ninja classes are 45 minutes. On Saturday, child classes are 1 hour. Teen/adult Saturday classes are 45 minutes, with an optional 15-minute open floor session at the end.

Are there different Ninja levels in class?

  • There is a single level for Mini Ninjas.
  • There are 6 levels for Kid Ninjas. On the last Saturday of each month, a level-up test opportunity is offered to participants. Testing requirements for each level are described on our level-up sheets.
  • There are two separate classes for Teen/Adult Ninjas, based on level. Novice and intermediate students attend one class, while advanced students attend a different class.

Can my 5-year-old attend Kid Ninja classes instead of Mini Ninjas?
After an assessment of your child’s abilities by one of our Ninja coaches, with special permission he or she may be allowed to participate in classes for ages 6 to 12. Please call ahead to discuss this with one of our team members.

Can I bring my child’s friend to class with us?
Your child’s friend is welcome to join a class! If it’s their first time attending, they’ll need a reservation. Prior to their first class, we’ll also need to receive a waiver signed by their legal guardian. (Waivers can be emailed.)

Do I need previous experience to attend a class?
No previous experience is necessary, you’ll just need to attend the appropriate class based on your level.

How are classes structured?
Every class has a different focus, with our Ninja coaches highlighting specific obstacles during the class.

What should I wear?
Ninja class participants of all levels should wear comfortable workout clothes that are not baggy or loose, to prevent clothing getting caught in obstacles. Shoes are not required.

Do you offer Ninja shirts?
We do! Ninjas of all ages can purchase our black Ninja shirts. Colored shirts are also available for Kid Ninjas (ages 6 to 12), but these can only be purchased after participating in class and passing the level-up test associated with each shirt color.
