Travis Rosen knows obstacles. A dad, pro ninja, and public speaker/author, he’s spent the past ten years aspiring to conquer the formidable obstacle course competition American Ninja Warrior, currently in it’s 11th season on NBC! A former All American gymnast, Rosen—now age 44—continues to overcome the seemingly impossible, earning him nicknames such as The Ageless Wonder and Mr. Consistency. His ability to inspire is more poignant than ever, after making a miraculous comeback from season 10’s horrific National Finals ankle injury.
His storied career began in season two, with highlights including being the first American to climb stage four’s 77 ft tower on USA vs The World, being a two-time member of Team USA—as well as captain—and being a top-five finisher, five times. Additionally, Rosen is the only American with eight consecutive trips to the ANW Finals with six stage one clears. He has also enjoyed success as team captain of runner-up Team TNT on seasons one and two of the ANW: Ninja vs Ninja series (formerly Team Ninja Warrior).
Season 10 of American Ninja Warrior—his 9th—presented Rosen with his biggest obstacle to date: overcoming the severely broken ankle he sustained while crash landing during the National Finals. Receiving news post-surgery that he may never run again, Rosen has become a walking miracle—not only healing better than expected, but making his return to ninja action less than one year after his horrible injury.Show More
