American Ninja Warrior: Colorado competitors featured on tonight's episode

Tonight's episode of

American Ninja Warrior

will feature

seven Colorado badasses

tackling the television show's near-impossible obstacle course for a chance to make it to the finals and win $500,000. All seven belong to a

local parkour gym called APEX Movement

. Check out the show tonight on NBC at 8 p.m.

And see photos of the local competitors running the course below.
