Why did you choose this business?
After five seasons of competing on American Ninja Warrior, I realized training had become my passion and Garrett Takach (NASM Personal Trainer) had become my training partner with that same passion. We also shared the same vision to create a world class training center for others like us, and anyone else interested in learning these obstacles while getting in a fun, new style of exercise.

Why did you choose to do business in Albuquerque?
Both Garrett and I were born and raised here in Albuquerque. We noticed that the crossfit scene really took off not only here but around the country. People were craving a new style of fitness. Training for Ninja Warrior is just that and we had become experts in this field with our years of training and from constructing our own personal obstacle courses. Since Albuquerque had nothing like our vision, we felt it was the right time and place to introduce everyone to our unique style of fitness.

-Josh Kronberg
What is your business philosophy?
We want to help people achieve fitness goals higher than they ever though possible, by teaching them how to overcome obstacles both mentally and physically in a fun, safe, inviting, and supportive community.

What contributions to the community (charitable or otherwise) are you most proud of?
We are proud of bringing this new, functional, and fun style of fitness to the community of Albuquerque. Before, in order to participate in obstacle courses, you had to already be at a high level of fitness. Our trainers have created programs to help not only the Ninja Warrior athlete, but anyone with a fitness goal. We offer weight loss programs, muscle building, programs, corrective exercise and injury prevention programs and our specialty Ninja Fit program. We are proud to say that Ninja Park is the only obstacle course training facility that is as committed to helping the community achieve their fitness goals as we are. Whether you want to become the first American Ninja Warrior or you want to lose five pounds and be a little bit stronger, we offer the professionals, motivation, and support that you need to achieve your goal.

Do you have a hero or mentor-business or otherwise?
My mentor's name is Stephen Takach. He is a Doctor of Philosophy in Business Administration and studied at the University of Texas at San Antonio. Naturally when I knew that I was starting my own business I called him for advice. He did much more than just explain the theories and statistics of business to me. Instead he took the time to help me understand why I want to start my own gym and create a new style of fitness by helping me better understand myself. He helped me realize my truest characteristics and therefore understand what parts of myself I want to reflect in my business. He helped me understand my past failures and disappointments in life so I could move on and focus my energy on succeeding with my new dream. I often ask him questions looking for a direct answer. Instead, he helps me make the decision for myself by giving me the guidance I need and letting me talk it out with him.

Do you have a hero or mentor-business or otherwise?
My father, Daniel Kronberg, is my mentor, he is a full-time artist, (bronze sculptor), and I have apprenticed with him for years. His drive for perfection and the quality of his work has influenced how I build obstacles and how I train with focus and dedication.

-Josh Kronberg
How did you get started in this business?
I started as a Personal Trainer at Highpoint Sports and Wellness. I became a personal trainer because I enjoyed discussing people's fitness goals with them and helping them find time to achieve them. Obstacle courses (American Ninja Warrior specifically) is my favorite way to workout and keep myself healthy. This came through in my personal training style. No matter what fitness goals people brought to me, I trained them as if they were going to try to compete in an obstacle course event. My clients loved the exercises and were seeing the results they wanted. At that point I realized that there are digressions to all of the obstacles that can start simply as body weight exercises. I created a style of fitness that mostly consists of body weight exercises, muscular strength and endurance, weight loss and the added challenge of overcoming obstacles mentally and physically.

What age groups can train at your gym?
Ages 15 and up are welcome to participate in open gym, classes, and workshops. We also offer classes for kids ages 6 and up. Currently we are developing a parent/child open gym during specific times.
Do you offer any other services?
We do ninja warrior workshops, team building events, Ninja Warrior competitions and birthday parties for kids and adults. The birthdays are unique because we close the gym to keep it private and the parents are welcome to play too!
