Movement Lab New Jersey

902 E Park Ave, Hainesport, NJ.
(609) 330-4784
Movement Lab Parkour and Ninja Warrior Gym Website

What began in a backyard has now turned into one of the biggest parkour and ninja warrior gyms around. Founded by the Wilczewski brothers, Chris and Brian, the Movement Labratory (formerly known as the Warrior Lab) hosts the biggest American Ninja Warrior Event, Pro ANW Weekend. Chris and Brian have both made big names for themselves, Chris being a four time veteran finalist and Brian coming out of nowhere in the Baltimore finals to impress everyone. In addition, the Movement Labratory holds parkour classes for all ages.

The story behind the Movement Lab started years ago, when Chris and Brian decided to teach parkour to their friends out of their backyard. Then, they decided to move to a local park and offer classes. Eventually, it caught on and they joined a CrossFit gym. But they continued to grow until it was time to open up an official gym. Back then, I headed out to interview Chris and see the gym for myself. . Now, the Lab is preparing for yet another move to a larger space, effectively doubling the facility. That means more obstacles including TWO warped walls, an enhanced Ultimate Cliffhanger which now includes a crazy cliffhanger gap, the unstable bridges, bars, vault boxes, rails, a double salmon ladder, rock holds, a rope traverse, quad steps, and much more...
