CrossFit Kids is not simply a scaled down version of CrossFit, it is entirely absolutely CrossFit geared and designed for a special population and the specific developmental needs of that population (neurological, cognitive, and motor).
CrossFit Kids is a strength and conditioning program that is specifically designed for kids and teenagers and helps them develop a lifelong love of fitness. In a group setting, children and teens participate in fun and engaging workouts that deliver measurable results and prepare them to be well-rounded athletes. With a network of over 2000 CrossFit Kids Trainers, CrossFit Kids is being implemented in preschools to high schools with before-and after school programs and integration into Physical Education curriculum. CrossFitKids.com contains thousands of archived workouts, video demonstrations and informative articles that provide interested parents or teachers with a foundation for understanding how the CrossFit Kids program can be implemented at home or at school.
CrossFit Kids workouts consist of constantly varied, functional movements that deliver a fitness that is broad, inclusive and general and scalable for any participant at any level.
The program teaches proper form and mechanics in functional and athletic movements in classes that are different every day. Each child is instructed at his to her level, allowing each individual to experience challenge and reward every class. CrossFit trains teens to be generally physically prepared, encompassing all ten general physical skills (strength, balance, coordination, flexibility, stamina, speed, agility, power, cardiovascular endurance, and accuracy). In doing so, our training prepares them for excellence in sport, and more importantly, in life.
This year we will be adding a nutritional component to our program. We will expose our kids and teens to what it is to eat healthy as a lifestyle rather than as a “diet”. In today’s youth this becomes vital since childhood obesity is rampant in our society.
We’ll have classes plant and maintain their own garden. This will expose them to taking part in their healthy eating habits. At the conclusion of the summer we will have a feast where we will use our crops as part of the main dish!
Our kid’s classes cover ages 6-12 and teen classes cover ages 13 to 18. They include a dynamic warm up, skill development, a workout, and skill development to finish it off. Each class lasts approximately 45 minutes to an hour long.
