CrossFit Kids is a strength-and-conditioning program specifically designed for kids and teenagers, structured around their developmental needs, that helps them to develop a lifelong love of fitness.
In a group setting, children and teens participate in fun and engaging workouts that deliver measurable results and prepare them to be well-rounded athletes. CrossFit Kids workouts consist of constantly varied, functional movements that deliver a fitness that is broad, inclusive and general (B.I.G.) and are scalable for any participant at any level. So what does that mean?
Constantly varied 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. All of the movements are taught safely and effectively under the close supervision of thoroughly trained CrossFit Kids coaches.
When fitness is defined as B.I.G. 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.
