Ninja Warrior Kids
Whole School Wellbeing Workshops
Ninja Warrior Kids specialises in the delivery of whole school wellbeing days aimed at improving the awareness of mental health and wellbeing as well as physical health of both pupils and staff. We were established in 2017 and since that time we have been invited into over 100 schools, with many booking return visits. Our packages are tailor-made to the needs of individual schools and include mental health and wellbeing, keeping healthy, growth mindset and achieving goals.
The days are run by Jonny Urszuly, a personal trainer and winner of Ninja Warrior UK and Wendy Jagger, an experienced Primary School Teacher.
Our lead trainer, Wendy Jagger has 15 years teaching experience in Primary Schools. She has been SENCo for 14 years (achieving the National SENCO award), Inclusion Manager and a Senior Leader at a school in Lancashire. Through this experience, she has developed her knowledge on mental health and wellbeing and actively promotes and leads this in her school. Wendy is a fully qualified Gymnastics club coach and understands the importance of keeping physically fit and healthy. In this capacity, she volunteers at a local Gymnastics Academy and it was through her love of sport that she applied to and took part in Ninja Warrior UK.
Jonny Urszuly has been a personal trainer for 6 years. He is also an ex-gymnast and competed as part of the Men’s Hungarian gymnastics team. More recently, Jonny has become a famous face for ITV’s Ninja Warrior, where he has qualified for the final three times, winning the show in 2017. Jonny has since gone on to become a course tester for Ninja Warrior and has competed at global events.
After a tailor-made whole school assembly, focused on mental and physical wellbeing, Jonny and Wendy will set up a Ninja Warrior style obstacle course within the school to put the children through their paces. Fun and challenging for all pupils and staff and truly inspirational. To have happy and healthy children, who are ready to learn, they must have good mental and physical wellbeing.
