Since late 2004 CrossFit Kids has been Forging The Future Of Fitness and is currently in over 400 gyms on six continents. CrossFit Kids is a strength and conditioning program that is specifically designed for kids and teenagers and helps them 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. With a network of over 2000 CrossFit Kids Trainers, CrossFit Kids is being implemented in a variety of settings, such as preschools, high schools, before-and-after school programs and Physical Education curriculum. CrossFitKids.com contains thousands of archived workouts, video demonstrations and informative articles that provide interested parents or teachers with a foundation for understanding how the CrossFit Kids program can be implemented at home or at school.
CrossFit Kids workouts consist of constantly varied, functional movements that deliver a fitness that is broad, inclusive and general and scaleable for any participant at any level. What does this mean? This 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). With workouts that are scaleable, CrossFit Kids can equally benefit those who are less active as well as accomplished athletes by tailoring each workouts to the individual.
