For three months, I built an obstacle course in my good friend's backyard to challenge myself and others in preparation for the American Ninja Warrior Competition on G4. There was quite a bit of planning and preparation involved and a LOT of labor to build the course. We joked that building the course was tougher than running through it!

The tryout was an amazing experience. We learned a lot and are that much more prepared for this coming year's tryout. We will see you in Venice and on G4!

My video submission to G4 is included in this entry.

I was honored to have my photo on the ANW homepage (right side under "Featured Competitors")!

This was such a fun project! Also the inspiration behind Getup, Go HARD. Just wait until you see the next one ;)

This was so fun, to build and to try, but you gotta show off your audition video and try to get the footage of you on the show!
