As our children are becoming more and more sedentary there is a growing need to incorporate health and fitness into the lives of our kids. By laying a solid foundation of fitness ideals from an early age, we can reduce risk of disease, injury, and build a better future for our young ones.
Since CrossFit is a generalist program, our kids program follows a similar philosophy. We cover the broad skills and movements essential for life and athletics. Improvements in the gym translate directly to better performance on the soccer field as well as the playground.
We strive to make our kids program fun. Every session includes a warm-up, focus work on a basic athletic movement and or gymnastics skill, a short Workout of the Day, and games. As with the adult program, we find the universal scalability equally applicable to our younger population. Classes are structured to give the athletes progressive training in gymnastics and strength training as well as an increase in self-esteem and confidence.
School aged children and older children that are new to CrossFit can expect to learn and have fun in this 1 hour long class. We will focus on agility, coordination, flexibility, power, speed, balance, strength and accuracy getting these kids ready for sport and life. If there is an adult WOD running at the same time that the parent is taking the child will be supervised for the remainder of the hour.
Monday at 4:30pm, Saturday at 8:30am
