CrossFit Kids & Teens

CrossFit Kids and CFK teens aims to create excitement about exercising and providing the foundation for a lifetime of physical activity and healthy lifestyle choices. While workouts are fun, they also increasingly demand strength, stamina and perseverance. The physical and mental demands of CrossFit Kids foster self-confidence, discipline, persistence, problem solving, and integrity that can be applied in all areas of children’s lives.

CrossFit Kids is a strength and conditioning program specifically designed for pre-schoolers, kids and teenagers with their specific developmental needs in mind.  In a group setting, children and teens participate in fun and engaging workouts that deliver measurable results and help them become well-rounded athletes. CrossFit Kids workouts consist of constantly varied, functional movements that deliver a fitness that is broad, inclusive and general and are scalable for any participant at any level.

What Does This Mean?

Constantly varied – 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.

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 CrossFit Kids Coaches.

Broad, inclusive, and general – 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.  CrossFit Kids stresses proper movement mechanics at all ages, and consistency of good movement is a necessity before loads are added or intensity is increased.  It is our long-standing experience that when children move well, consistently over time, they will eventually move faster, safely.
