Do you have what it takes to be a Ninja Warrior?

by Ben Ford

In July 2017 our weeknights were blessed with the wonder that is Australian Ninja Warrior. I mean, what’s there not to like about watching athletic bodies manoeuvring their way through obstacle courses, and secretly thinking to yourself “I reckon I could do that”?

Ok, so I probably wouldn’t look as good as Fitness and fashion blogger, Nathan McCallum while doing it, but I’d have a pretty good chance of face planting it in the same fashion as Martial Artist, Sopiea Kong did in Heat 1 on the tyre swing to cargo net obstacle (2:06 in the video below).

Instagram influencers and nun chuck masters aside, I got to thinking, working at RedBalloon I’ve done some pretty adrenaline packed experiences. So, from a RedBalloon experience expert, here are some experiences that are well worth a try to see if you’ve got what it takes to be a Ninja Warrior.

Rock Climbing
Mega Zip Line
Flying Trapeze
High Ropes Climbing Course

Once you’re finished hanging from rocks, gliding the zip line and practising your Zen, you’ll have a pretty good idea if you’ve got what it takes to be a Ninja Warrior. And if after all that you find that your ninja is lacking, you can always just kick back and put your feet up with a day at the spa.
