Basketball In The Cave?

Saturday, April 21st, 2012

Last week we had the opportunity to help train a local youth basket ball team. One of our members generously paid for gym time and staff to bring these boys over for two days to train. Coach Bryan put together a fantastic program for them. It was great to see these guys work. There were speed drills, agility, jumping work and more. Working with athletes to help build their conditioning base is what we do very well. Having members that can help us provide this service when it might not otherwise be possible is amazing. Thanks to all involved.

Who is that guy who has been subbing and helping out with the parkour classes this week? That would be JB Douglass.

JB was invited to come to our American Ninja Warrior Open Audition back in Feburary.  He’s a friend of Zack Weldon and Christian Fairfax and used to coach parkour, gymnastics, freerunning, Kid’s Night Out and Birthday parties in Rohnert Park gymnastics.  He competed with us in American Ninja Warrior 4 down at Venice during the qualifiers in early March and he coached the parkour classes on Monday and has been helping out in the gym all this week.  If you watched the ANW 4 trailer that I posted last night you may have noticed him towards the end.  They didn’t actually show him doing anything, just screaming.  Here’s a little video of some of his basketball,… ummm,… parkour skillz:

I love The Beatles, don’t you?  Who do you like more, Elvis or The Beatles?  (Pulp Fiction!)  Post thoughts to comments.

JB is a passionate coach and loves to teach.  If you see him around the gym, feel free to introduce yourself and maybe even ask him for some pointers for your 3-point shot or your double-Kong or precisions.

As a side note, we are still trying to figure out the logistics for the American Ninja Warrior viewing party on May 21st.  We’ll let you know when we do.
