After becoming a high-level competitor on NBC’s “American Ninja Warrior,” Carl Fantauzzo paired his vision along with real estate developer and Ninja Warrior enthusiast Bernard Birnbaum to come up with what is known across Western New York as The Warrior Factory.
Based on the response and enthusiasm from Buffalo, they were chosen for the next Warrior Factory location, which is now open at 4691 Transit Road.
Operated and co-owned by fitness enthusiast Darren Wojcicki, the new Buffalo facility is 10,000 square feet with state-of-the-art, professionally fabricated obstacles for all ages and skill levels to play on. If you have ever seen “American Ninja Warrior” on TV and the obstacle courses they compete on, this is your opportunity to join in the fun right here in your hometown.
Fantauzzo and Birnbaum have partnered with Buffalo native Wojcicki to operate and manage the new location because of his 15 years of extensive training in the wellness and fitness industry. He graduated from Canisius College with a bachelor of science degree in sports medicine and athletic training. He then furthered his education by becoming a certified exercise physiologist and certified strength and conditioning specialist.
The Warrior Factory held a grand opening on Sept. 7.
