  • What is CrossFit Kids?

    CrossFit Kids is CrossFit specifically designed for children to prepare them for life. It includes a scaled down version of adult skill training and workouts and it also focuses on fun to get kids excited about exercising.
  • How can CrossFit Kids benefit my child?

    CrossFit Kids enhances a child's motor skills by teaching better movement and cognitive skills through engaging children to think about their movement, count their reps, remember the sequences, and work towards goals.  CrossFit Kids augments a child’s involvement in sports by incorporating strength training and conditioning to make our CrossFit athletes better athletes at any sport.

  • How will you run CrossFit Kids classes?

    Our job as a coach is to make exercise fun and help children move better-safer and more effectively to prepare them for the rest of their lives. Each class will have a warm-up, skill, WOD and cool down session.
  • What can I do as a parent?

    We encourage parents to support their children, stay and spectate them from the sidelines, cheer, participate in CrossFit adult training, help their children maintain consistency in CrossFit attendance, and provide healthy meals at home and for school. We emphasize the importance of unprocessed, real foods in balanced proportions. We encourage parents to bring their children to class on time and in comfortable, appropriate clothing to exercise in. Parents should provide a water bottle for their child(ren). Please make us aware of any injuries or changes in your child’s health that might affect them during class. Please be prompt in picking up your child when class is over.
  • What is inappropriate behavior for parents?

    Generally, we would like parents to resist the urge to interrupt classes or counter our training expertise. Behavior we would like parents to avoid includes but is not limited to the following: shouting cues to children, encouraging rivalry and competition, encouraging risky behavior, encouraging bad form, encouraging heavier weight, choosing weight, arguing with coaches, stealing child’s attention and focus, interrupting, infringing upon training space, bringing children late or pulling them out early (exception: emergency situation), criticism of children or coaches, overriding coaches’ decisions, or bringing sick kids. CrossFit Kids should be a fun experience for kids and their parents, so we want to keep it that way!
