The beauty of Australian Ninja Warrior is that you can train for it anywhere… there’s no right or wrong way to train… some walls, a door frame, underneath some stairs… However… training on ninja obstacles similar to the show can’t hurt right? Right! Therefore, below is a list of all the gyms in Australia with ninja obstacles to train on.
Check out the list below sorted by state. If you know a place that’s rad but isn’t in this list, leave a comment below or click here to contact. Alternatively, if scrolling isn’t your thing, they’re totally sortable on the Australian Ninja Warrior Gyms website.
Australian Ninja Warrior Gyms New South Wales (NSW)
It’s not a big place, but man have they packed a whole heap of obstacles in. They’ve got a spider jump, warped wall, peg board, multiple salmon ladders, ring board and heaps and heaps of stuff to swing off, climb up, balance across and pull up on. It was pretty much the go to place to train in while Australian Ninja Warrior was filming.
This video seems to show a lot of what they have to offer… they’ve got heaps. I’ve actually seen this place pop up in viral videos of people being just super hardcore. The Obstacle Course Racing School will absolutely toughen up your hands, your core, well, pretty much all the bits.
Address – 2/5A Pioneer Ave, Tuggerah NSW 2259
They have a warped wall people! And you win a free pass to the course if you get up the top! Can’t think of a better incentive plan that than. Also, looks like there is lots of rope obstacles to really toughen up those hands.
Well, this looks like crazy amounts of fun. I really want to try the Enduro course they’ve got going on. Check out this video to get a little bit inspired. While the obstacles aren’t so Ninja Warrior orientated, I think it’s really important to train by stringing obstacles together. Obstacle course competitions are hardcore exhausting and Skyzone Miranda looks like a great place to train… and they time your runs… which appeals to me so much.Like Bounce, it looks more designed for kids, but don’t let that stop you.
I know it’s a CrossFit Gym, but the owner, Adam Brown, is building up the number of Ninja Warrior obstacles with which to train with. He’s training for Ninja Warrior himself so he’s more than happy to take you through the paces at the gym. Here’s a small sample vid from Insta.
Commando Tough in Caringbah NSW is pretty much as hardcore as you’d expect. There are ninja obstacles throughout the facility… check out this video below for a cup of hardcore.
Address – 16 Endeavour Rd, Caringbah, 2229
@joelsparkour got 15 minutes solo time in the gym, he made it count! ⏳⏳🔥🔥🔥🎯🎯 • 📸@skitzkitz #whatagoodegg #AAPESathlete #hugejumps #parkour #freerunning #aapes #trainlikeaapes #teamfarang #crew42 #adventure #explore #movewithlove #goproanz #reachescape #novelways #traceur #training #girls #movement #definebeast #bwfitness #fitspo #motivationalfitness
I don’t know a whole lot about Aapes, but they’ve got a warped wall… that’s pretty ace.
Address – 3/3 Wood Street, Tempe NSW, 2044
Nestled behind Darling Harbour, they’re doesn’t seem to be a lot of ninja obstacles per se, but they have a heap of apparatus that would help develop the same skills. Lots of things to climb and swing off.
Australian Ninja Warrior Gyms Victoria (VIC)
The Compound has massively maxed it to the extreme in the last few months and is very much aiming to be THE ninja training facility on the east coast. They just had their own 4 stage Ninja Competition which looks like it was an absolute blast. Furthermore, they have a heap of ninja obstacles as is very much worth a visit if you’re in Victoria or even really just in the same country as VIC.
Address – 80 HUNTS RD, TUERONG VIC 3915
They have full sized warped walls, devils stairs, monkey bars, a spider climb, 10 foot walls, lache bars, cliffhanger holds, peg boards, swinging rings, mini tramps to pipe bombs, rings peg transfers. The owner Jase is one of the most passionate trainers I’ve ever met and does great things for his clients. I highly recommend checking this place out as more is being added all the time.
PORC (Peninsula Obstacle Racing Course)
I don’t know much about this guy, but watching this video shows it to be Tough Mudder inspired, which is not at bad thing. Lots of rope, tires and fences, I’m sure training here will toughen you all the way up.
Address – 480 MORNINGTON TYABB RD, MOOROODUC, VIC
This is where I’ve spent so much of my time training. You’re going to get a lot dirtier than a lot of the gyms listed here, but it’s fun and the obstacles are surprisingly taxing. There’s nothing here that you’d see on a Ninja Warrior course, but training here you will absolutely develop the right muscles and your balance. From memory it costs about $10 per visit. Call ahead to make sure they don’t have any events on at the time you want to train… this is where the Victorian Tough Bloke challenge was held.
Address – 7 Clifford Drive, Wonga Park, VIC, 3115
BounceInc in Glen Iris has a whole ninja course set up! It’s really designed for our younger ninjas, but it’s surprisingly taxing on adults too. If you’re in the area, definitely give it a try, it’s exhausting and will toughen up the hands and feet… get your balance dialed in, etc.
Address – 2 Weir Street Glen Iris VIC 3146
Australian Ninja Warrior Gyms Queensland (QLD)
Quite a few ninjas visit Crank once a week to have a training session, they put up Gravity Grips in the training area to practise laches and catches. They create little courses to try. It looks like a heap of fun, and if you can get there I’d highly recommend. (Tee it up in this group)
Address – 76 Business Street, Yatala QLD
They have a salmon ladder, warped wall, pegboards, balance beams, Cannonball alley and heaps of different grips, ropes and a 15m rope climb. Plus bars and ring. They hold a ninja competition every couple of months. The owner has 6 years experience as a parkour coach and 6 years as a calisthenics coach.
Australian Ninja Warrior Gyms Western Australia (WA)
The Ninja Academy in Perth is seriously world-leading. I’ve visited quite a few Ninja gyms in the US and nothing even comes close to Ninja Academy in terms of size or epicness of the equipment. They have monthly Ninja competitions which will help you build your tank and your skills as you string obstacles together and compete in front of an audience. They’ll start holding national competitions in June 2017, so if you’re serious about training, definitely make an effort to get on over there.
Australian Ninja Warrior Gyms South Australia (SA)

SA Base Camp is designed more for getting you ripped and ready for Spartan races and Tough Mudders, but they have more than enough ropes, rings, bars and cliffhangers to get you Australian Ninja Warrior strong. Our first Ninja In Training Jeff trains up a storm here.
