What is CrossFit Kids?
CrossFit Kids is a generalized strength and conditioning program of constantly varied, functional movements. The program utilizes the CrossFit methodology applied in a scaled manner suitable for children and focuses on the concept of pairing fitness with fun. CrossFit Kids incorporates many of the same movements done in the adult classes. Life, sport, and fitness require us to be able to run, jump, throw, hop, leap, pull, and push and our Kids program teaches just that in a fun and supportive environment.
What is a CrossFit Kids Class Like?
An example of a CrossFit Kids class would be a follow-the-leader warm-up, learning a skill or movement with PVC pipe, doing a workout, leap frog races, and would finish up with an obstacle course. The class is run in a fun and encouraging environment that embraces the fact that kids will excel at different skills and exercises at different rates.
Who Can Participate?
Our CrossFit Kids classes are suitable for most kids ages 6-18, although we call the oldest age group “CrossFit Teens.” Just like CrossFit for adults, CrossFit Kids is scalable to all ability levels. The neat part about CrossFit Kids is the fact that because of the varied nature of the exercises and skills incorporated, every kid will excel and be challenged by different aspects of our program. This creates a fantastic learning and team environment.
