The timeless TV disclaimer says “don't try this at home”, begging the question: why isn't everyone going up to the schoolyard right now to do some crazy-ass sh*t? To pick up TV-worthy skills you can try at home after you learn them at the gym, get to The Warrior Lab
From a dude who's made a semi-finals run and a finals run on Ninja Warrior and another who absolutely didn't (but's still pretty sweet, don't worry), Warrior's a gym with all manner of of Porta-John-sized boxes and rail-height hurdles, plus a fully outfitted weight room, all designed to train you in the wall-walking art of Parkour and teach you the ridiculous skills used on that show whose name involves ninjas. To get your strength up, they'll work you with stuff like Quadrupedal Movements (muscle-building crawls), pull-ups and muscle-ups (a regular pull-up, followed by lifting yourself waist-high), and hang-by-your-legs-on-a-rope "sloth climbs", also what the dude from Goonies exclaimed as he got on that pirate ship. From there, you're channeling Batman in air and balance training, which involves routines like squats done on a balance beam; mat work to solidify your high-fall landing skills; and time on boxes and hurdles, where you'll work on climbing, cat jumps, and kongs, which either involve stuffing tasty dog treats into an ultra-durable rubber toy, or jumping over multiple objects while using your hands to vault off each one
The coming months will see the addition of more classes as TWL gets used to its new digs, along with the installation of a "salmon wall": a climbing challenge essentially consisting of a ramp that twists up, to the side, and over your head, so you can learn to take down some big curves -- although keep in mind that other TV disclaimer: may cause nausea.
