With a focus on improving the quality of life for our members, our goal is to help children/teens become the best possible version of themselves while building a strong athletic foundation. We are committed to teaching children the importance of health and fitness in a safe and positive learning environment.
Creating a positive association with exercise and fitness early in life is essential to becoming a healthy adult. We teach our young athletes to move correctly, improve coordination, and have fun.
What is CrossFit Kids?
CrossFit Kids is not simply a scaled down version of CrossFit, it is a specific CrossFit program geared and designed for the specific developmental needs of kids (neurological, cognitive, motor). CrossFit Kids workouts consist of constantly varied, functional movements that deliver a fitness that is broad, inclusive, and general. It is also FUN!
What does this mean?
This means that, for the most part, no two workouts are the same, so kids and teens never get bored and the novelty of each workout keeps them excited about participating. The functional movements involve exercises that are fundamental to all things that kids need to do when they play: pull, push, run, throw, climb, lift, and jump.
When fitness is defined as broad, inclusive, and general, it means that participants will become well-rounded athletes who will be better at any and every sport that they play because CrossFit Kids doesn’t coach them to be good at just one thing. Our workouts will increase physical competence in 10 fitness domains: Cardiovascular and Respiratory Endurance, Stamina, Strength, Flexibility, Power, Speed, Coordination, Agility, Balance, and Accuracy.
