Kick off summer with stronger and faster—and more female—ninjas in the ninth season premiere of American Ninja Warrior this coming Monday night, June 12. It's been a few years since a competitor has won ANW, so athletes are training twice as a hard to make it to the final round and reach the top of Mount Midoriyama to achieve total victory.

Season 8 proved that these obstacles are no joke. This season's obstacles will be harder and will require more than just strength and stunt training to finish. And more women are entering the competition, serving as an inspiration to little girls watching from all over America.

Check out this exclusive action-packed first look at American Ninja Warrior Season 9:
