ninja warrior course

John is a veteran American Ninja Warrior competitor, competing on seasons 9, 10, & 11.  If he’s not in the gym training, you’ll probably catch him outside training on the stairs under the Gateway Arch.  He is a US competitive stair climber. The tallest building he has climbed is the Willis tower in Chicago.  In the past 5 years he has climbed over 80,000 floors.  This is why he is known as the StairNinja on American Ninja Warrior.  

When not training John spends most his time with his wife & two children. His daughter is just 5 months old but his 9 year old son loves ninja warrior obstacles just as much as his dad.
