Akbar and Matt discuss how Ninja Warrior is reshaping kids’ fitness

When asked at the Summer Press Day, the hosts were ready to talk about one of their favorite topics.

At the NBC Universal Summer Press Day, American Ninja Warrior hosts Matt Iseman and Akbar Gbajabiamila answered lots of Ninja-related questions. But there was one topic that they were both clearly passionate about.

When Fab TV host Fernando Escovar ask Akbar and Matt about American Ninja Warrior Junior, they both lit up. They’re not just excited about the new show, but about what Ninja Warrior has done for kids in general. Matt even suggested an American Ninja Warrior physical fitness test should be incorporated into schools.

They then went on to talk about Akbar’s upcoming appearance on the course for May 24’s Red Nose Day Celebrity Ninja Warrior special.
