Have You Heard of This Brand New Ninja Gym in the Lower Hudson Valley?
There are plenty of new businesses opening across the area, and one such place is quite unique. Have you ever wanted to train like a ninja? Sounds fun, but we're not talking about hand-to-hand combat or using weapons. This has to do more with athletics and moving around a lot. With many people looking for an excuse to head back the gym now that the worst of COVID seems to be behind us, this could be your new thing.
LoHud says that a new kind of gym called ROAM Further Athletics opened in Mount Kisco in January 2022. Their website describes their facility as a "home and waypoint for movement-minded adventure seekers with a passion for leading active lifestyles.". This isn't so much about weights as it is climbing, running, obstacle courses, and lots of moving. They offer classes, one-on-one, and camps for all ages.
ROAM specializes in the discipline of Parkour, which is a type of athletic training where participants attempt to get from one point to the other in the most fluid way possible, without assisting equipment and in the fastest and most efficient way possible. If you have any sort of military or martial arts background, or are interested in those fields, then this could be for you,

A new business is coming soon to the old Kmart location at the Crossroads Shopping Center.
