I don’t know about you, but I always wonder what people are up to once they have retired from American Ninja Warrior, so I thought I’d look up a few and share with everyone.

Kacy Catanzaro

The former NCAA gymnast made her first appearance on American Ninja Warrior in season five. Mighty Kacy went on to earn a number of firsts and inspired girls and women alike to try ANW for themselves. She retired after season nine and started her career with WWE NXT in 2018. Today, Kacy is still getting in the ring and is fitter than ever!

Isaac Caldiero

After achieving Total Victory in season seven, Isaac Caldiero took nearly three years off. Isaac came back in season 10, but shocked fans when he was knocked out on Block Run in the Indianapolis City Finals. He has been spotted in some of the international Ninja events and continues to spend his days rock climbing in the American South. Isaac has also taken on a new challenge—mountain biking!

Geoff Britten

Geoff Britten became the first American to ever achieve Total Victory when he made it to the top of the tower at the end of Stage Four in season seven. Although Isaac Caldiero edged him out of the title of Champion by climbing the rope faster, Geoff has a definite place in the history books—and fans’ hearts. Geoff came back in season eight but went out on the first obstacle in Stage One, then took some time off. He returned in season 11 and did not complete the Tacoma City Qualifier. But don’t worry—Geoff is still involved in the Ninja community. He is the Director of Ninja Nation and still competes in local events.

Editor’s note: We’re not saying Geoff has retired from Ninja Warrior! We just haven’t seen too much of him in the past few seasons and he’s of huge historical importance to the show.

Jonny Moseley

The Olympic gold medalist was a color commentator for season four and continues to work with NBC as an Olympic and World Cup Freestyle skiing analyst. He gives keynote addresses all over the country and spends time with his family in San Francisco.

Natalie Duran

Natalie Duran was another climber that made the switch to Ninja, competing in seasons five, eight, nine, and 10. After that, she started competing on MTV’s The Challenge, placing 4th overall in War of the Worlds and making it to the finale in War of the Worlds 2 as part of Team USA. Ninja Natalie still climbs and can also be found cruising up and down the California coast on her Harley.

Paul Kasemir

Paul Kasemir was one of the original speedy Ninjas, competing in seasons two through seven. He made it to Stage Three in SASUKE 26 and competed in several special Ninja episodes, including American Ninja Warrior: USA vs. Japan and as a member of Lorin Ball’s team. The Coloradan is still active in the community and participates in Wolfpack Ninja events.

Travis Brewer

Another one of the OGs, Travis Brewer appeared on seasons four, five, six, seven, and nine. He only qualified for Vegas once, but was still a fan favorite. He may not compete on ANW anymore, but he’s still a big part of the Ninja community. He is a movement coach, member of the Wolfpack, and owner of an activewear clothing company.
