Kids Fitness Program was developed to help kids to grow up healthy, strong and develop a lifelong love of ﬁtness which will give them the right foundation to avoid common problems associated with childhood inactivity and obesity. Kids Fitness Program 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).
Kids Fitness Program classes are designed with the unique needs of young athletes in mind, and combine skill practice, workouts and fun games that focus on building strength and conditioning. Our classes include elements of gymnastics, martial arts/karate, weight lifting, body weight movements, running, jump roping, and more – all in a fun and safe environment.
Healthy living requires that our kids push, pull, run, throw, climb, lift, and jump effectively and safely regardless of their athletic ability. In order for kids to learn and succeed in other sports, they need to start with the basics, which is exactly the reason we teach using the 10 General Physical Skills that are the base for any sport or discipline that children participate in.
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 motivated to participate. 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. All of the movements are taught safely and effectively under the close supervision of CrossFit Kids coaches.
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.
