In 2017, Cannon Meyer competed on Season 9 of American Ninja Warrior and was featured on an episode of the show, which only fueled his love for the sport and the ninja community. At the same time he trained for the show, he was also building Ninja Playground.
Cannon was born and raised in Cheyenne and loves his hometown. He saw a need in Cheyenne for something different in terms of fitness, not only for kids but adults too. His love of fitness and desire to impact the community in a positive way is how Ninja Playground was born.
For Cannon though, ninja athletics is more than just a fun way to exercise. It helped him recover from a TBI (traumatic brain injury) and learn a new way to live. It's a way to improve critical thinking, raise confidence and also puts you in a community full of positive and supportive ninjas, which is exactly what he needed while recovering from his injury.
Cannon and his parents, Mike and Cheri Meyer run the Ninja Playground as a family and that translates to all of their members. Together, they're proud to serve youth and adults in Cheyenne with a different way to exercise. Ninja Playground is fun and gets kids away from video games and tablets. It's equally as fun for adults who are looking for something more than a typical gym can offer.
The coaches focus on a positive mindset, supportive community along with, fun, improving agility, strength, balance and confidence.

What we do
Pretty much everyone knows about the hit TV show, American Ninja Warrior, which is a spin off of a Japanese show.
It's much more than a TV show now, however; it's a new way to challenge your athletic ability, by using various obstacles that not only engage the mind but balance, grip strength, agility and speed. Some might say, it's a fun sort of daredevil type of fitness.
Parkour originated from military obstacle training. It's a sport that calls for a new way of getting from one point to another. Sounds pretty simple, right?
It's using your body and ability in creative ways as quickly as you can; jumping, tumbling, balancing and rolling. All fun stuff and there's a technique for all of it!
G-NAT uses Global Neuromuscular Activation to improve exercise, not only making it more ergonomic, but also more time efficient.
What is Global Neuromuscular Activation™?
"When properly executed, vertical training on a Vertical Movement System™ activates the sympathetic nervous system by preventing the body from establishing a state of equilibrium. This activation is called Global Neuromuscular Activation™ (GNA™), where all 603 motor muscles are put on standby, and 200+ of those muscles are recruited while performing 12 specifically designed Vertical Life Movements™."
