CrossFit Kids is a method for teaching Greg Glassman’s CrossFit to children, ages 3-18. CrossFit Kids emphasizes good movement throughout childhood and adolescence. Consistently good movement 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.
*We will offer a special rate for people who enroll their children in our Kids program in the first month that we have it open. For more information on CrossFit Kids go to http://www.crossfitkids.com
