    A Denver dad went above and beyond building an obstacle course many adults might have trouble with for his tough-as-nails 5-year-old Lylah who fascination with NBC's "American Ninja Warrior" has inspired her to tackle all kinds of obstacle courses. 

    Gavin MacCall is the daddy behind this impressive course built in their backyard.

    The ferocious 5-year-old tackles the course in her "Girls are superstars" T-shirt.

    He said in a Facebook post that as Lylah kept requiring more and more challenging courses, they had to move their physical fun outside of the house.

    "Her practicing everyday on the playgrounds around our neighborhood has really given her the strength for this course," MacCall said.

    MacCall said they are preparing for "American Ninja Warrior Junior" (made up by MacCall) and have set up a GoFundMe account for anyone who wants to help after seeing Lylah's talent. 

    After seeing a few other Facebook posts, it's hard not to love this dad-daughter duo.
