In this episode, American Ninja Warrior Geoff Britten, arguably the First American Ninja Warrior, Talks with the Wolves about trying his hardest and the future of ANW/sport of obstacle running. The wolves also grow emotional discussing Isaac Caldiero.

Geoff Britten is a family man, first and foremost. Sure he loves American Ninja Warrior, just like the rest of us (and so does his wife the very talented and lovely Jessica Britten; also a strong Ninja competitor on the show!) But Geoff devotes relatively little time to actual hardcore ANW training. He has a little gym in his basement where he trains very very hard for about 2 hours a day; every day. Part man, part machine, this 20 year + rock climber is one of only 2 people ever to complete the American Ninja Warrior course, and THE ONLY Ninja athlete to ever have a perfect season and not get wet!

When Geoff Britten got done with the rope climb--which he did in under the required 30 seconds--he was asked what he thought about Isaac's odds of success were. He was gracious and paid respect to his climbing brother, and then also said "but I know one thing: I'm the FIRST AMERICAN NINJA WARRIOR!" This has been a point of contention among many fans and unfortunately, Geoff and Isaac grew distant after the competition. Although they both completed such an amazing accomplishment, only Isaac won $1,000,000 and the Title while Geoff literally walked away empty handed. Since then, dedicated fans have raised more than $13,000 for the Britten family via a GOFUNDME which you can donate to. You should click on the link and give a few dollars as well to this American Hero! Also, you may be surprised to see the First ANW poll results (vote and view below.)

Here's to you, Geoff Britten; The Wolfpack Ninjas salute you!
