Written by  Natalie Stone

Ryan Sutter‘s children were “super stoked” when they found out their dad was going to compete on American Ninja Warrior.

When presented with the opportunity to participate on the NBC series, which follows competitors as they tackle a series of challenging obstacle courses in both city qualifying and city finals rounds across the country, Sutter, 42, didn’t hesitate.

“It’s always been sort of a life philosophy to take on challenges and to try new things and sort of maximize your life — try and do as much as you can when you can and when opportunities present themselves to take advantage of them. So that’s kind of what happened with this,” he tells PEOPLE about making his debut in the competition in the Denver city qualifying round, airing Monday. “It was coming to Denver and we obviously live nearby there and it just seemed like a worthwhile effort to give it a shot. They let me have a chance, so I was fortunate in that regard. I guess I just figured, ‘Why not? Let’s see what this is all about.’ ”
