CrossTown Fitness Announces Partnership with Junior Ninja Warriors

March 23, 2017

Obstacles courses, climbing walls and monkey bars can now be a part of adults’, not just kids’, workout routine as CrossTown Fitness teams up with Junior Ninja Warriors for Adult Total Body Ninja sessions. CrossTown Fitness (CTF), Chicago’s premier high-intensity interval gym, is now hosting the new class at Junior Ninja Warriors (JNW), 2915 W Montrose Ave, to offer a one-of-a-kind training experience for Chicagoans.

The Total Body Ninja 1-hour session provides high intensity strength and training through a variety of drills that focus on skills, power, agility, endurance and mobility. This unique experience also gives area fitness enthusiasts an opportunity to train for obstacle races year round.

Both Chicago gyms are thrilled for the exclusive partnership. Jackie Piejak, owner of JNW, said, “Our junior classes have been a hit so we’re excited to offer a fun yet challenging way for adults to train and workout with the exceptional CTF staff at our facility.”

CEO of CTF, Charlie Graff, comments, “JNW’s dedication to young fitness has inspired us to offer our loyal clients and all Chicagoans yet another way to accomplish their total body workout outside of the gym setting. We recognize most adults already have a “home” gym for exercising – this experience gives each a chance to apply their conditioning to obstacle courses on a weekly basis.” 

Class Description
In these 60-minute sessions, participants can expect a thorough dynamic mobility warm-up, followed by cardiovascular routines, strength techniques, and obstacle skills. The class utilizes equipment such as kettle bells, barbells, resistance bands, and medicine balls to not only build strength and endurance, but to prepare participants for the intense ninja obstacle course. The class is open to all fitness levels.

The class is available to CTF members and non-members. 18 years and older. The sessions are priced at $20 and are included in CTF’s unlimited memberships. The training courses are offered at JNW (2915 W Montrose Ave. Chicago, IL 60618) Wednesdays (7 and 8 p.m.), Thursdays (7 and 8 p.m.) and Saturdays (7:30 and 8 a.m.).
