I wrote a novel! My debut book, THE NINJA GAMES: THE WARRIOR WITHIN is a middle grade novel (middle school and high school) that combines my love of Ninja Warrior with my love of adventure.
Athlete. Activist. Author. Ninja.
You probably know me from NBC's hit show, American Ninja Warrior. I love athletics and hard work, but most of all, I love my family! I enjoy creating videos, content, and even writing books!
I made my Ninja Warrior debut in way back in Season 4 and have also competed on Spartan Ultimate Team Challenge season 1 and 2 as well as competing on Team Ninja Warrior Season 1 through 3.
No place like home.
My family lives in the small town of Salmon, Idaho, and we love it! I work seasonally for the Forest Service and the rest of the year on his Father-In-Law's ranch. On top of that, he frequently is an inspirational guest speaker, writer, and I have even been a stunt actor!
Work on the ranch has made me into the man I am today. It’s hard work, but it's rewarding. And, best of all, it doesn’t take that much of an imagination to find places or objects to train on.
Family is everything to me! I love being a husband and father and being able to share experiences with my kids while teaching them about life and the ranch.
My amazing wife, Heather, has been his biggest inspiration. It was a hard decision, but in Season 9 of American Ninja Warrior, we Pekus family decided to disclose to the world her struggles with MS.
Heather is the best mother and wife and the hardest working counselor at the Salmon High School despite her medical struggles.
