Experiencing Ninja Academy PH

Last February 18, we were so privileged to try out a FREE session of Ninja Academy in their newest and biggest branch in Las Pinas City.

Ninja Academy PH

Ninja Academy is the first indoor parkour facility in Manila. It was established by members of PPFA, Philippine Parkour Freerunning Association and opened its first branch in Pasig on March 15, 2014.

This was our first time at a Ninja Academy facility. They have bars, blocks, barrels, foam pit, trampoline and other training stuff.

We initially planned to have Gabi do the session. But since we were given a free +2, hubby was encouraged to try out (though he is not prepared). Gabi did the Parkour while Dad took the Ninja Fit training.

They started with a warm-up, but be warned because It was extensive. You better be prepared and did some workouts prior to the session. Good thing our kiddo was all pumped up because he came from a soccer game in the morning.

Parkour is the functional and creative movement of a person attempting to overcome an obstacle in a given environment. It consists of natural, human movement such as running, jumping, climbing, rolling, swinging and for advanced free runners, tumbling or flips. as mentioned on their website. On the other hand, Ninja Fit is a great way to loose weight and be safe. It helps you stay fit and at the same time, the exercises will help you prepare when confronted with life and death situations.

Here's Gabi doing Parkour:

They also have friendly and professional Ninja coaches. I just can't imagine the discipline and the difficulty they went thru which is so evident with their fit and strong bodies.

My little man also had a great time.

We were so blessed with this experience. My boys went home with a souvenir (aching bodies, haha!) but they said it was all worth it. It was a fun and memorable experience. If time and budget will permit, we would love to come back here in the future. It's a great family workout.
