Here we have competitor Casidy, age 26, from Florida.
Training where? Crossfit gym, rock climbing gym and some backyard ninja training.
Athletic background? Played some high school sports but outside of school I played just about everything. Spent a lot of time surfing, wakeboarding, snowboarding, and skateboarding as well.
How long obstacle course training? Coming up on one year since I first tried any obstacle/ninja warrior training.
Why obstacle training? I’ve been into training for years and obstacle training just gave me an outlet to focus in on.
Why compete? I’m naturally a competitive person and I just want to see how far I can go. Motivation? I’m motivated by improvement, competition, and the strong ninja community.
Favorite obstacle? Salmon ladder or flying bars. Least favorite obstacle? Cliffhanger, lache.
Personal interests (movies, hobbies, music, books, charities, etc.)? I live near the beach so I still spend a lot of time surfing and usually travel at least once a year to surf.
Something interesting about you? When I was younger, our house was burned down by a volcano in Hawaii
Motto or how you live your life?
Piece of advice for obstacle course training? I avoided rock climbing for as long as I could in an attempt to create the same stimulus in other ways but I just wasn’t able to replicate it so I would have to say rock climbing would be my biggest suggestion to get started.
