CrossFit Kids workouts consist of constantly varied, functional movements that deliver a fitness that is broad, inclusive and general and scalable for any participant at any level.
Which 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 Trainers.
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.
With workouts that are scalable, CrossFit Kids can equally benefit a person who is less active or an accomplished athlete by tailoring workouts so that each participant is challenged just enough to deliver measurable results and personal athletic progress.
Each CFK class is structured based on the following schedule:
Practice time: 10-15 minutes. This time is spent working on skills such as jumping rope, hand stands, hand stand push ups, squats, etc.
Warm up: 5-10 minutes. Our warm ups consist of movements that warm and stretch our muscles, increase speed, agility and coordination.
Skill: 10 minutes. After we’re all warmed up, we work on a specific movement that is programmed in their workout of the day (WOD), or we work on a movement that needs revisiting. This is a time where we focus on technique.
WOD: Most of our workouts are 10-20 minutes long. We use body weight movements, cardio vascular movements and weighted movements to get a total workout.
Cashout/game: This is a good time for the kids to have a little fun with a game or challenge themselves with some additional work!
Currently, our program is designed for kids ages 8 and up!
Our CFK’s work hard and have a great time doing it!!
