Anyone who has seen an obstacle course TV shows such as “Ninja Warrior” probably has a good idea of how much work and preparation goes into training for these feats of endurance and strength. What many may not know is just how much work that goes into building the types of courses and the training facilities that these athletes use to prepare beforehand. Recently, XSF Truss had the pleasure of assisting one such facility to design, engineer and build a gym, fitness facility unlike any other.
Located in Fort Worth, Texas, Humble Ninja Fitness specializes in fitness training for those who are looking for something a little more intense and challenge-focused. The facility contains several machines and obstacles that are based directly off those seen in “Ninja type” shows. Such obstacles include cargo climbing nets, double step, and the dreaded salmon ladder, a modified pull-up bar that requires the user to pull the bar out of its fixture and snap it up to a higher level, all while still hanging.
All of this equipment required an intricately designed and well-engineered truss system, and XSF was more than up to the challenge.
