Owner Jennifer Halla is hoping to create some ninja warriors in Cedar Park.

Austin Ninjas, a gym that features some of the obstacles and trains some of the athletes in the TV show “American Ninja Warrior,” is opening its second storefront.

The private gym is moving into a former grocery store space at 200 Buttercup Creek Blvd., Ste. 107A.

Halla said the Cedar Park location will be open for classes on Aug. 26. A grand opening celebration is scheduled Sept. 14, and the business is booking birthday parties for Sept. 21 onward.

Two “ninja warriors” from the current season, Nick Fordney and Damir Okanovic, work at Austin Ninjas. A third, surprise ninja warrior will start working for Austin Ninjas in August. Several additional pro ninja warriors, seen on NBC's "American Ninja Warrior," will be attending the grand opening on the weekend of Sept. 14-15, Halla said.

While the Austin location is open to ages 5 and up, the Cedar Park location will have a special class for ages 3-4, Halla said. There are obstacles unique to each location, according to Halla.

There are two courses at the Cedar Park Gym: one for youth and one for adults, according to Halla.

“And we have ninjas who train for the show,” she said.

Starting Aug. 6, the Cedar Park phone will be operational at 512-953-1000. Until then, call the Austin location at 512-514-0555. www.austinninjas.com
