VIDEO: Kristine Leahy Hits The Gym A Bit Harder Thanks To ‘American Ninja Warrior’


American Ninja Warrior co-host Kristine Leahy seems as fit as can be, but her fitness routine takes a deeper dive when the show starts another season. “I hit the gym extra heavy before we start shooting,” says Leahy. Video of Leahy discussing American Ninja Warrior’s effect on her workouts is available after the jump!

Extra props go to Kristine Leahy for her epic verbal sparring with Lavar Ball (Lonzo Ball’s mouthy and media savvy dad). Not only did she keep her composure when he told her to stay in her lane (a comment which I found absolutely insulting), she also didn’t back down from the argument (most media members appear obsequious in the face of Lavar Ball, and it’s great that Leahy stood her ground).For more of that epic encounter, check out this USA Today piece.

My video, in which I asked Leahy, Akbar Gbajabiamila, and Matt Iseman on how American Ninja Warrior was recorded back in March – way before the Ball incident. Anyways, here’s Kristine’s answer, and I’ll be posting Iseman and Gbajabiamila’s responses on my other websites. Stay tuned!!

American Ninja Warrior’s season premiere airs Monday, June 12 on NBC (9/8c).
