What is CrossFit Kids?
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, motor skills)
The CrossFit Kids program is a perfect conditioning program for kids ages 7- Preteen(12). The CFK program focuses on “functional fitness movements” such as balance, speed, strength, coordination, agility, power and cardiovascular endurance.
Functional fitness movements are movements that help your body function like it should, giving one the ability to get normal things done in your daily life. CrossFit Kids workouts consist of constantly varied, functional movements that deliver a level of conditioning that is broad, inclusive and general, as well as scaleable for any participant, at any level. Most importantly, to the kids at least, ITS FUN!
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, not just in sports, but in life as well. All of the movements are taught safely and effectively under the close supervision of our certified CrossFit Kids Trainer, Laura Schmidt. As a CFK athlete, participants 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, so it’s a very well rounded program. Also, with workouts that are scaleable, CrossFit Kids can equally benefit a child who is less active, or an accomplished athlete. This is done by tailoring workouts so that each participant is challenged just enough to deliver measurable results, and personal athletic progress.
Keep It Fun
From start to finish, a CrossFit Kids builds fun into the structure of the class. The framework is essentially the same from preschool through teen, with some changes as the kids get older, particularly in terms of class length. Duration is based on CrossFit Kids’ experience with the typical attention span of children as they mature. Keep the children engaged only as long as they are developmentally able to remain engaged and then leave them wanting more.
