2018-2019 CrossFit Kids

What is CrossFit Kids?

CrossFit Kids is not simply a scaled down version of CrossFit, it is entirely, absolutely CrossFit geared and designed for the specific developmental needs of children. (neurological, cognitive, motor)

Since late 2004, CrossFit Kids has been Forging The Future Of Fitness and is currently in over 1,200 gyms in North America, Australia, Europe, Africa, India, Japan and Panama. 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 will 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 over 1,100 schools form preschools to high schools with before-and-after school programs and integration into 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 works.

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.

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. They are good at all things!

Our workouts will increase physical competence in 10 physical fitness areas: 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 child 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.

Truth Fitness CrossFit KIDS Class Structure:

Kids (ages 5-9) and Juniors (ages 9-13) work out together 2 days a week (Mondays & Wednesdays) and Juniors have a 3rd day per week on Fridays. Each class is designed to challenge and encourage all the different age groups appropriately. We have several coaches and assistants on staff to help all levels of kids!

Mondays & Wednesdays

Kids and Juniors will begin with a group warm up, move into some focus time on a particular skill set, complete their WOD (workout of the day), then end with a cool down or game. Nutrition and healthy living is also discussed in classes. All workouts are customized to each child so that they are safe, but also challenged in their workouts.

Fridays

Fridays are for Juniors only (ages 9-13). Juniors will be completing the WOD that the rest of the gym does on Fridays. Coaches will modify the workouts for the Juniors and their individual skills. The Juniors get to record their WOD results on the main WOD board with the adults! This is a really incredible time that the kids get a feel for what real CrossFit classes are in preparation for their graduating into BASIC Training classes at age 14. We have had many kids complete KIDS classes and move into regular classes with great success!

Kids Competitions

We also hold a Kids CrossFit Competition at the end of each year in June. We prepare all the kids for this special day! The kids love to showcase their skills! And parents are always invited to help!
