How far will Jesse Labreck go in season 12?

While Jesse won’t get her chance for revenge on Stage One due to the new competition format, we’re pretty sure she’s just as motivated to make it to Finals this year.

Jesse “Flex” Labreck has become one of the strongest competitors on American Ninja Warrior and was the last female standing in both seasons 10 and 11. She’s made it to Stage One of the National Finals each year, but wasn’t able to get past the Cargo Net... until this year’s USA vs. The World (watch her run here).

The ANW competition format is a little different this season, so while Jesse won’t get her chance for revenge on Stage One, we’re pretty sure she’s just as motivated to make it to Finals this year. Let’s see what she’s been up to.

Jesse kicked things off by celebrating her 30th birthday with a balance/strength workout.

Spent some time in the climbing gym, as many Ninjas do.

Practiced some Ninja-specific skills, of course (with a little help from fellow Ninja Ethan Swanson!).

And got in some strength training!

This year will mark her fifth appearance on the show, and we’re all wondering what this Ninja is capable of accomplishing. Good luck Jesse—we can’t wait to see how you do!
