TORRINGTON — The American Ninja Warrior competition is coming to the Torrington YMCA on Nov. 30. Participants will have a chance to compete and see if they have what it takes to become the first Torrington Y Ninja Warrior Champion.
“We have planned to hold Ninja Warrior competitions since our training facility opened,” said Northwest CT YMCA Director of Obstacle Fitness, Rob Breakell. “American Ninja Warrior has always had a competitive flair, and we are shooting to make it as close to the show as we can with our own Y twist.”
This is the first 18-and-olver open competition the Y has had since the Ninja Warrior Training Facility opened in March.
Breakell will provide an orientation and guidance to the course on the first day , followed by preliminary competition. The following day, those who successfully complete the course within the time limit will be invited back for the finals. The event entrance fee is $35 to participate.

Competition begins at noon on Nov. 30, with finals picking up the following day.
The Northwest CT YMCA Ninja Facility includes a variety of features that are sure to test participant’s strength, speed, and endurance. Some of these include a salmon ladder, two warp walls, climbing rig, swinging rig, upper body rig and a bouldering wall.
The Y Ninja Training Center has been strategically designed to put youth, teens, and adults to the test as they challenge themselves, learn new skills and train like a Ninja Warrior. From swinging, climbing, rolling, running, jumping, and all in between, the Ninja Training Center consists of a whirlwind of obstacles that can be changed out, putting new challenges into play on a regular basis.
For adults looking to incorporate new bodyweight activities in their regular workouts, as Y facility members, they will be able to access the center for open gym daily throughout the week. The Y also includes family open time from 6-7 p.m. on Monday and Friday.
Instructional programs have been carefully crafted to provide our littlest Ninja Warriors (beginning at age 4) to teens and adults the strength and confidence to succeed. Participants will walk away with an incredible sense of accomplishment that is sure to keep them coming back time and time again to tackle new obstacles and set and achieve new goals.

A youth Ninja Warrior competition is scheduled for Dec. 27-28.
