I love the idea of this! I heard about this a few months ago and when I mentioned to my husband that I hope Bryden will do crossfit and he laughed at me. So of course I went straight to the computer I went and to Google (Google is my go to for anything I need to either prove my husband wrong with or just find out any information) and showed him all sorts of information on it. I think that got him kind of excited also. I think it would be a great program for Bryden to be in when he old enough. We really want him to be active and not addicted to video games and TV. Not that there’s anything wrong with TV and some video games but just sometimes not all the time. I hope that we are good role models for him and that helps him want to be active. Its kinda of like a monkey see monkey do type thing right? I’m not saying our son is a monkey! lol But kids do pick up on what their parents are doing also. Right? Well here is some interesting information I have found if this is the first time your hearing about Crossfit for kids. And if you have experience with it I would love to hear about it!

Since Late 2004 CrossFit Kids has been Forging The Future Of Fitness and is currently in over 400 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 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 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 can be implemented at home or at school.

CrossFit Kids workouts consist of constantly varied, functional movements that deliver a fitness that is broad, inclusive and general and scaleable 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.

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 scaleable, 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.
