Here’s what you need to know if you’re interested in opening a USA Ninja Challenge franchise.
The USA Ninja Challenge is an ever-evolving, exciting youth fitness experience aimed at children ages 4 to 17. USA Ninja Challenge looks to increase young people's well-being and set them up for a balanced life through the love of physical activity.
By using different obstacles to help them overcome their fears, students at USA Ninja Challenge learn the art of jumping, climbing, swinging, traversing, balancing, and floor skills at their own pace. Children move into the next activity after they complete a skill and are confident about the next challenge.
USA Ninja Challenge began franchising in 2015, the same year it was founded. There are now over 15 USA Ninja Challenge franchises located throughout the United States.

The USA Ninja Challenge is unique in getting kids and teenagers out of the modern technology-based world and into physical activity. By targeting the 4-to-17-year-old market, franchisees may see a consistent turnover of ever-ambitious kids and parents, learning and achieving.
What Might Make a USA Ninja Challenge Franchise a Good Choice?

In addition, you should prepare yourself for ongoing fees that will include advertising fees and royalty fees. Franchisees will also need to meet the company's set net worth and liquid capital requirements.
