CrossFit Kids is a method for teaching CrossFit to children ages 5-12. Based on the principle of Mechanics, Consistency and then Intensity, CrossFit Kids emphasizes good movement throughout childhood and adolescence. Consistently good mechanics translates to physical literacy, enhanced sports performance and fewer sports injuries for kids. Not only that, a vast body of research indicates that exercise is beneficial to cognitive function, which means consistent adherence to the program can have a positive impact on children’s academic achievement.
CrossFit Kids is meant to be BIG fun for all ages. Broad-Inclusive-General fun. Fun means we provide an active alternative to sedentary pursuits, which means less childhood obesity and all-around better health for our children. Further, the needs of second graders and high-school varsity wrestlers differ by degree and not kind; the program is scalable for any age or experience level and accounts for the varied maturation status one can find in a class full of kids. CrossFit Kids is designed to be minimalist; it is inexpensive and often requires little or no equipment, allowing a wide array of socioeconomic groups an opportunity to be physically fit and physically active throughout their lives.
We want the kids to leave the gym having a positive outlook on fitness and activity. This will hopefully carry over into their teens and adulthood!

CrossFit Kids for Athletes
Most sports these days are played year around. On top of that most practices are all skill based with no variability in movement. CrossFit Kids puts the body through a lot of variance that not only builds strength, mobility and coordination but also uses the muscles ignored by most sports programs today. This will build a well rounded athlete and most importantly a healthy kiddo!
