My name is Chris Boehm, and I am a 27-year-old energy engineer who lives just outside Nashville, TN, with my wife, two dogs and a cat. I started training for ninja warrior in October of 2013 when I found the Team Nash ninja warrior Facebook page. I went out there, and to my surprise, I completed five or six obstacles that night! It took me five tries to get up the warped wall, and from there, I was hooked. I built some ledges in my garage and began completely changing my workouts.
I've always been athletic, playing sports growing up, but as an adult with a full-time job, I needed more than the weights gym or club league sports could offer. Finding hot yoga in 2011 was a good step in the right direction. It was something difficult, different and fun. In 2013, ANW season 5, the show began exploding, and I knew there had to be others around who had at least built a salmon ladder. Little did I know I was 45 minutes away from the largest backyard course in the country (at the time).
I didn't get chosen for ANW 6, but I tested the course that year in St. Louis. This was a great experience for me and was the beginning of my athletic adjustment to training specifically for ANW all the time. Every workout I do now helps prepare me for the ninja course. I quit my membership at the boring weight lifting gym, built more stuff in my garage and began training at my local calisthenics gym, Nashville Strength Co. I've never been in better shape or happier with my fitness routine. These days I'm training hard five-six times a week.
These are the places that I get my training done at. I also do a lot of training at home. I have built out a handful of obstacles in my garage, and I am constantly adding new things to play on! If you are wanting to reach a specific goal in your fitness journey I would strongly suggest you reach out to these places!
Nashville Strength Company: You never know what the trainers over at LFA will make me do! Pretty much anything fitness!
Team NASH: This is where I cut my ninja teeth, it's a full sized 35 plus obstacle course out in Lebanon. Message us through Facebook to come try the course!
Main Street Strength & Conditioning: I get some of my weekly yoga here from my wife who is the resident yoga instructor. I also take the occasional conditioning class here.
Hot Yoga Of East: If you've never taken hot yoga, you don't understand the craving for the sweaty heat that a yogi such as myself has, I quench that craving here.
My Garage: My home base, where the workouts are exactly what i want, every time. It's a 2.5 car garage with 13 foot ceilings, a perfect ninja lair.

Clyde Riggs Elementary was gracious enough to bring me in for one of their field days to speak to the students on a variety of topics as well as put them through some ninja training! It was a great time and we look forward to the next one!
This is where it all started friends! Stay tuned! We are super excited to be a part of the awesome ninja community!
