These Ninjas inspire others with their social media shares

We asked who inspires you on social media. Here are the answers!

Elizabeth Morris/NBC

Recently we asked you, the readers, to share which Ninjas you follow on social media for daily motivation. Now, we know that ALL the competitors on American Ninja Warrior are inspirational, but we wanted to know more about who really jumps out to you. Below, we’ve listed the names that were shared (in no particular order) as well as the reason that was given. (Not all the Ninjas have a reason listed. That means someone submitted the name, but didn’t offer additional details.)

We love this list! Who would you add to it? Tell us in the comments.
