Crossfit 3340 Kids, Mids & Teens
CrossFit Kids is not just a scaled down version of CrossFit. CrossFit Kids is designed for a special population and the specific developmental needs of that population. CrossFit Kids was founded in 2004 by Jeff and Mikki Martin and is a method for teaching Greg Glassman’s CrossFit to children, ages 3-18. Based on the principle of Mechanics => Consistency => 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 that 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 primary kids and high school athletes 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. CrossFit Kids is designed to be minimalist; it is inexpensive and often requires little or no equipment, allowing a wide array of socioeconomic groups an opportunity to be physically fit and physically active throughout their lives.
Classes for 2020 will be split between age groups so we can best cater for the developmental needs of each child.
Class sessions will be:
KIDS (age 5-8)- 3.50pm-4.20pm
MIDS (age -12)- 3.50pm-4.20pm
TEENS-(age 13+) 4.30pm-5.15pm
Our Kids, Mids and Teens classes are straight after school and conveniently before our adults classes so that they can come in get a workout in, hang out in the Kids Room afterwards while you get yours in! Then you can make it home in time for dinner!!
