On November 5, iCore Fitness in West Chester, PA hosted a National Ninja League qualifier. The field was full of competitors we’ve spotted on American Ninja Warrior and they did not disappoint.
The top three competitiors in both the men and women divisions move on to the National Ninja Championship on March 3-5 at Apex Movement NorCal in Concord, CA.
Check out the results and watch the top scoring runs.
While we didn’t see Jon Stevens on the show in season eight, he was a course tester in Philadelphia who completed every obstacle. The Philadelphia City Finals was the first time in American Ninja Warrior history that no one completed the course, so it’s darn impressive that Jon pulled off all the obstacles.
Here’s his first place run at iCore Fitness:
