Hey, has anyone else noticed that Sam Sann’s gym is terrifying?

People go here willingly?!?

Sam Sann is a beloved American Ninja Warrior competitor who trains at his own gym, Iron Sports, in Houston, Texas. His legion of dedicated students, like Daniel Gil and Jody Avila, are fierce athletes on the show.

But honestly, we can’t figure out why they keep going back to this place. His gym looks downright scary! Look at these things!

He’s got a Giant Peg Wheel, which basically just keeps you in lock off purgatory until you can’t stand it anymore.

Sam Sann has his own version of the Wingnuts as well. You know things are bad when you look at this Ninja Killer of an obstacle and think, “That just looks tame compared to the others.”
