Summer Camp Sessions for kids ages 6-11
We will announce dates for summer 2016 programs soon!
We wish to provide opportunities for our community’s children to discover their full potential. We see a need for today’s child to gain healthy and fun fitness habits, while developing self-discipline to appropriately approach risk as it is presented in a safe and fun environment.
Crossfit Kids' Fitness Goals: CrossFit Kids aims to avert childhood obesity by creating excitement about exercise and providing the foundation for a lifetime of healthy eating by helping kids understand the importance of good nutrition complementing physical activity. Workouts are fun, and 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. Our workouts will increase physical competence in 10 fitness domains: Cardiovascular and Respiratory Endurance, Stamina, Strength, Flexibility, Power, Speed, Coordination, Agility, Balance, and Accuracy.
Kids will participate in fun and engaging workouts that deliver measurable results and prepare them to be well-rounded athletes. CrossFit Kids workouts consist of constantly varied, functional movements that deliver a fitness that is broad, inclusive and general (B.I.G.) and are scalable for any participant at any level.
Constantly Varied: 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: 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.
Safety: We start slow. Yes, we want the kids to work hard, but we never demand children to work harder or faster during a workout. This is a critically important point: With children, we always privilege good movement over speed. We do not want them so sore the next day that they are hurting. It is our long-standing experience that when children move well consistently over time, they will eventually move faster safely.
Additional Details: Programming for the classes is derived from CrossFit Kids HQ and the CrossFit Kids Journal. For more information about the CrossFit Kids program as a whole, please visit www.crossfitkids.com.
