CrossFit Kids is a strength-and-conditioning program designed to effectively teach the CrossFit methodology to children aged 3-18 years through age appropriate instruction and cueing.
In a group setting, kids participate in fun and engaging workouts that deliver measurable results. This prepares them not only to be well-rounded athletes, but also hard-working and tenacious people.
CrossFit Kids workouts consist of constantly varied, functional movements that deliver a fitness that is broad, inclusion and general (B.I.G.) and are scalable for any participant at any level.
What this means is that each child experiences challenge and reward every workout, basing success on effort rather than comparison. Kids are training for life, rather than a small, sport-specific, skill set.
