- American Ninja Warrior Competitor
- Father of three, Strong Faith Witness
- Former All American gymnast
Travis Rosen knows obstacles. A dad, pro ninja, and public speaker, he's spent the past nine years aspiring to conquer the formidable obstacle course competition American Ninja Warrior, currently in its 10th season on NBC! A former All American gymnast, Rosen--now age 44--continues to overcome the seemingly impossible, earning him nicknames such as The Ageless Wonder and Mr. Consistency.
His storied career began in season two, with highlights including being the first American to climb stage four's 77 ft tower on USA vs The World, being a two-time member of Team USA--as well as captain--and being a top-five finisher, five times. Additionally, Rosen is the only American with eight consecutive trips to the ANW Finals with six stage one clears. He has also enjoyed success as team captain of runner-up Team TNT on seasons one and two of the new ANW: Ninja vs Ninja series (formerly Team Ninja Warrior).
When he's not training or spending time with family, Rosen's living is as diverse as the obstacles he faces. He is a speaker with Nashville-based Premiere Speakers Bureau, where his impact has been immediate and far-reaching. Speaking on subjects he's lived and breathed such as believing for the impossible, preparing for success, overcoming adversity, faith, teamwork, and the value of perseverance, his message has reached tens of thousands. Additionally, 2017 saw Rosen sign with Premiere Authors. "Every time I step onto a Ninja course I get the privilege to inspire others. Speaking and writing give me even more exciting avenues to call upon this roller-coaster ninja journey, in order to help others. To know I can provide the spark to an individual, group, or team to better themselves or their situation it's so gratifying." He also spends time traversing the wiles of the stock market as a trader, and when able, enjoys training ninjas of the present--and future.
"My longevity and consistency on American Ninja Warrior, including the countless victories as well as defeats, have given me the unique opportunity to convey the importance of unrelenting persistence, teamwork, faith, and hope, and never quitting in the midst of incredible adversity. It's a message that resonates because that's life."
Originally hailing from Eugene, OR., Rosen served as co-captain on the University of Iowa's men's gymnastics team, where he graduated with a major in Japanese--including a one year study abroad in Japan, at Tsukuba University ( ). He currently resides in Franklin, TN., where his wife, three kids, and faith in Jesus continue to motivate him in his quest for Ninja's "Total Victory."
