Jonathan Horton “Olympic Ninja”

“AAI provided the equipment that I grew up on,” said Horton, “and now I’m happy to support its G2N™ line, which extends into the next phase of my life with American Ninja Warrior and the Ninja Coalition. I love going into schools and talking to kids about my experiences in the Olympics and how that has helped me get to this point in my life. It lets them realize they can do whatever they want as long as they stay active and don’t get discouraged. AAI’s G2N™ product line encourages fitness, positivity, and fun, so it is a natural fit for me.”

G2N™ products are strong enough for adults, adaptable enough for children, and unique enough for ninjas. They are the right combination of equipment and curriculum to engage members without taking up permanent space in facilities or requiring big investments. The turn-key curriculum encompasses physical literacy and much more, while bringing a new revenue stream to facilities. The versatility of the equipment is good for schools, local gym clubs and even big box stores. Facilities can utilize the wall structure with multiple attachments or create their own customizable ninja course from an assortment of different pieces.

A two-time Olympian (2008 and 2012), Jonathan was the 2008 Olympic silver medalist on the high bar, and a 2008 Olympic bronze medalist in team. He was the 2010 Worlds all-around bronze medalist, a two-time U.S. National All-Around Champion, and a seventeen-time medalist at the U.S. National Championships. Before entering a professional career in gymnastics, he was a six-time national champion at the University of Oklahoma. After a very successful career in gymnastics, Jonathan turned professional and has become one of the most well-known American Ninja Warriors, “The Olympic Ninja”, during his three seasons on the show.  Jonathan is also a team member on the upcoming prime time television show, “Ninja versus Ninja,”. Horton now travels the U.S. as a professional motivational speaker with the Ninja Coalition, and is a global ambassador helping provide hope and meals to children in poverty around the world with FeedONE™, a Convoy of Hope™ initiative.
