About

Our goal at NINJA BEACH is to motivate and enable our community to engage in physical activity and play. We strive to instill the basics of fitness in all diverse ages, skills, and backgrounds, equipping them with the necessary resources to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle.

Chris Tamborini

Chris Tamborini is a former US Ski Team member and cofounder of FREESKIER Magazine. He was an Olympic Development Coach and has coached Olympic athletes from several countries around the world. Currently Chris is the owner of Tamborini Painting here in Ocean County, NJ, and the founder and co-owner of Ninja Beach. Chris has always been competitive. In high school he was a Vermont state champion for bench press, and state champion in freestyle mogul skiing in Pennsylvania and Maine. After high school he moved out west to train for skiing where he tied the world record for pushups in a minute during the US Ki Team Medals test. He went on to win state championships for moguls in Utah, Colorado, and Vermont.

When multiple injuries forced him out of physical competition, Chris picked up a pool cue to satisfy his competitive needs. Chris has since played on three state champion teams in Colorado, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey. Chris attributes his ability to compete at high levels to his goal-setting skills. Consequently, goal-setting plays a big role in the Ninja Beach curriculum. Students maintain goal journals in which they write their goals at the end of each class. The short term goals become part of that individual’s class time. The bigger goals become a lesson on how to outline a plan toward achieving them.

With OCR becoming an Olympic sport soon, Chris’s goal is to create an Olympic ‘pipeline’ mapping a clear path to becoming an Olympic-caliber athlete and have a viable chance at competing at that level. Ninja Beach is the entry point to that pipeline.
