What is CrossFit Kids?

Based on the principle of Mechanics, Consistency and then Intensity, CrossFit Kids emphasizes good movement throughout childhood and adolescence. Consistently good mechanics translates to physical literacy, enhanced sports performance and fewer sports injuries for kids. Not only that, a vast body of research indicates that exercise is beneficial to cognitive function, which means consistent adherence to the program can have a positive impact on children’s academic achievement.

CrossFit Kids is meant to be BIG fun for all ages. Broad-Inclusive-General fun. Fun means we provide an active alternative to sedentary pursuits, which means less childhood obesity and all-around better health for our children. Further, the needs of second graders and high-school varsity wrestlers differ by degree and not kind; the program is scalable for any age or experience level and accounts for the varied maturation status one can find in a class full of kids.

about the programs

Classes are held on Wednesday’s at 3:00pm and Saturday’s at 11:00am. It is for ages 9-12 years old. This class will introduce kids to some of the foundation movements of CrossFit in a fun environment. They will not only learn some of the movements like squats, presses, and burpees, they will also learn a little about nutrition and other things. In this class they will initially use little to no weight. The weight they would use as they progress would be light medicine balls, light kettlebells or 5 lb plates. This is only used when the child has shown that they can do the movement properly. As they progress they will begin learning some different lifts, starting with a wooden dowel and moving up in weight slowly using light barbells, dumbbells, medballs, etc. All movements will be taught to help each athlete learn proper movement and also prevent injury.
