Zak competed on American Ninja Warrior in Season 8. Zak and his dad built a course in their garage to train because there was no place to do do it at the time!
Zak loves working with kids at Windy City Ninjas and watching how the benefits of cross training translate into other sports. He says, “Encouraging kids to conquer these obstacles gives them the drive to get out of their comfort zones and push themselves.”
Favorite obstacle: Cliff hanger
Favorite post workout refuel: Chocolate milk or a protein shake
Advice for a first time visitor to Windy City Ninjas: Have fun and try things you wouldn’t have tried before. The experience might make you want to add new things to your life.
