About Adam Waring
Adam Waring was born in Melbourne, Australia and in October 2015 moved to Portland, OR in the United States to pursue his dream of becoming the first Australian to compete on American Ninja Warrior. He is set to take the world by storm on Season 9 in 2017. Of course, a few months into his American training, Australian Ninja Warrior was announced. He’s going to tackle both. This dude will be 39 years old in his rookie appearance, better late than never!

About Cody Knope-Jenkins
Cody Knope-Jenkins is the primary Ninja Trainer in Portland, Oregon. Combining his fitness and engineering backgrounds, he’s developed a large number of obstacles which are all now available in his gym. He was a gymnast and cheer-leader in school and so brings all those skills together to be an all-round ace obstacle course trainer.
What is Australian Ninja Warrior?
Australian Ninja Warrior is a television show that is styled after American Ninja Warrior… which was in turn inspired by the Japanese television show Sasuke. It is basically a crazy hard obstacle that elite athletes, Olympians and normal every day people take on. It normally has 3 or 4 stages, where the obstacles get progressively more difficult. A competitor has to complete each obstacle course (often by a particular time) to progress to the next stage. The Japanese Ninja Warrior has been going for 31 seasons and has only had maybe 5 competitors actually finish it.
Despite being almost impossibly hard, it really is an incredibly fun and meaningful challenge. The community both nationally and aboard is so super supportive and incredibly friendly… it’s everyone versus the course. We’re trying to build a really fun and sharing community in Australia, let us know if you’re interested… it’ll be the best decision of your life!
