SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwired - Jun 1, 2016) - CircusTrix, whose booming network of extreme recreation parks serves up sharable experiences with the massive thrills of aerial sports, has announced an endorsement deal with American Ninja Warrior (ANW) star Kevin Bull (aka Kevin "The Bull").
The deal comes on the heels of the season eight premiere of ANW, the TV hit that has helped bring the the obstacle course craze to a fever pitch. Bull hopes the endorsement deal will raise awareness of the opportunities to experience and train for these types of courses and other extreme athletics at CircusTrix parks worldwide.
As a dedicated extreme athlete, Bull spends a large portion of his time training at home, outdoors, and at CircusTrix parks. As part of the endorsement deal, Bull will lend his expertise and experience to appearances with CircusTrix and continue to workout and practice at its facilities. Bull will also promote the company's innovation by working closely with CircusTrix Ninjaneers in developing new courses and attractions for the parks.
"I'm constantly looking for new places to train and obstacles to tackle," said Bull. "A lot of my training can be done from home or in the wilderness, but nothing gives me real life experience like SkyWalk, my local CircusTrix park. It's a great workout and it's moving to visit and see so many young people getting access and exposure to a sport that I have come to love."
Bull began competing in season six of NBC/Esquire American Ninja Warrior, qualifying for the Venice Finals and becoming one of only two competitors to complete the course. Since then, he has become renowned for his speed, creativity, and commanding presence in the sport.
"When Kevin burst onto the scene in 2014 as a walk-on, announcers pegged him as the 'real deal,'" said Case Lawrence, Founder and CEO of CircusTrix. "We absolutely believe he is. He's as committed an athlete as any out there, has a great heart, and we're ecstatic to have him onboard at CircusTrix as we work to make the thrill of adrenaline sports as accessible as possible."
CircusTrix parks include large trampoline decks, ninja obstacle courses, ramps, slack lines, and more. With parks built to ASTM standards and experienced staff and crews, it's an ideal environment for those interested in extreme sports or looking to become the next American Ninja Warrior to safely experiment and train.
CircusTrix is the largest owner/operator of extreme recreation parks in the world and the first to ink a deal with an ANW. The company boasts more than 24 parks in the U.S. and four in Europe and Asia, and has the largest network of indoor ninja obstacle courses in the United States.
