One of the interesting things about American Ninja Warrior is that it means different things to different people. Each of the contestants comes to the show with their own unique backstory, but it’s not just limited to the people on the show. Co-hosts Akbar Gbaja-Biamila and Matt Iseman say the beauty of the show is that viewers at home can find inspiration of their own in the show, whether it’s trying to get into better physical shape or trying to overcome some of the personal hurdles they face in their lives.
