Dear Parent,

My name is Nicole and I am the Owner/Operator of our CrossFit KidsProgram.  I absolutely love CrossFit and all it does for our adult athletes, and after having been exposed to CrossFit Kids, I have an even greater respect for CrossFit as a sport and lifestyle. CrossFit Kids is not simply a scaled down version of CrossFit, it is entirely absolutely CrossFit geared and designed for a special population and the specific developmental needs of that population (neurological, cognitive, motor). I’m both honored and humbled to play such an important role in the development of your child.

WHAT IS CROSSFIT KIDS

Straight from the CrossFit Kids Main Page…
IMG_7756Our goal at CrossFit Kids is to educate and enthuse children and teens about functional fitness. We believe these will be the foundational experiences our children require to embark on lifelong journeys of wellness which will enable them to effectively perform simple, yet necessary tasks well into their adult years. Our dream is to foster a generation of healthy, fit individuals who require limited assistance and enjoy freedom of movement and activity throughout their life spans. To that end, we design each of our workouts with the varied modalities that will increase fitness levels across a broad spectrum of performance and health considerations. Always functional, never boring, CrossFit Kids resolves the issues of our sedentary, noxious lifestyles. Working the body according to the way it was designed, we are training a generation to take responsibility for their health via the path of least resistance.

FullSizeRenderCrossFit 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. 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 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. Here is a GREAT video from the founders of CrossFit Kids, the Martins…it’s worth the five minutes!

At the youngest of ages, children demonstrate perfect human form, position and efficiency…

There are three main areas that kids gain from CrossFit:

1. Early Lifestyle Habits: instill the value of fitness at an early age. Our program is focused on safety and fun – learning that fitness can be fun is important! Kids will naturally make health and fitness a priority for their future. 

2. Emotionally: as with other sports, kids will build sportsmanship, leadership, teamwork, listening skills, self-discipline and manners. These are all skills, though not physical, that will help kids become successful later in life.  Watch your children’s self esteem and confidence boost!

3. Physically: CrossFit is great for kids because of the wide variety of disciplines it involves, from weightlifting to calisthenics to gymnastics. Kids brains are like little sponges, itching to make neurological connections and adaptations. These connections in the brain are made in response to stimuli. The more kids can be exposed to when they are young, the more connections and capacities they develop and retain for the rest of their lives.

Frequently Asked Questions:

SHOULD YOUNG ATHLETES LIFT WEIGHTS?
Our stand on this is that we believe kids should lift weights as early as possible or when their attention span is ready for it.  Weight training is SAFE when the environment is controlled and overload is gradually and systematically increased over time as the athlete becomes more comfortable with it.

Appropriate and supervised resistance training is not only safe for kids; it’s also tremendously beneficial. Anecdotal evidence shows that strength training for kids is far from what could be considered “dangerous” for developing bones.  Kids are more likely to hurt themselves by violent or and traumatic (falling) events which far exceed any stress on a young athlete’s bones than lifting weights.  Strength training actually protects our young from injuries by gaining increased muscle size and strength.

WANDERING
Our goal is to keep your child safe.  It is unacceptable for Kids to enter the gym to wander or use equipment of any kind without supervision by a Coach. For our young athletes: After the child’s class, he or she is to return to the CF Kids Room to wait for parent/guardian pick up. Kids are not allowed in the adult gym unless taken there by their Coach.  With Coach Nic’s permission, the older, seasoned kids are allowed to visit most areas of the gym.  *Parents, strict note about supervision of other children that are not in my program:they MAY NOT enter a class or wander around the facility*

OBSERVING
Your child may be dropped off and picked up; it is not necessary for you to stay. We ask all parents, siblings and spectators wait in the CrossFit Kids room during class. Parents may watch as long as you do not interfere with class. This is to ensure your child’s safety, progress and positive experience. Trainers need each athlete’s full attention and ability to safely move around our limited space without any extra bodies.

DRESS CODE/WHAT TO BRING
Work out attire which allows freedom of movement without being too loose they can get caught in equipment and tennis shoes must be worn. NO SANDALS. Kids may bring gym bags, backpacks, school work, and any medications they may require.

A water bottle is required. Any lifting accessories such as lifting shoes, wrist wraps, knee sleeves, etc. is not required but will be allowed. Phones may be brought to class but will not be tolerated as a distraction.

WE OFFER FMS FOR KIDS

We have become certified in a testing method called Functional Movement Systems or FMS.  The science has been around for over 20 years and was created by a physical therapist named Gray Cook.  FMS is simple…it takes 10 minutes, evaluates and grades 7 fundamental movements.  This ranking system documents movement patterns that are key to safe and normal function.  By screening your child, the FMS system readily identifies functional limitations and asymmetries. An asymmetry can be an imbalance between sides or between upper & lower extremities. These issues can reduce the effects of functional training & physical conditioning but more importantly can distort body awareness, which often leads to injury.  If there are any weaknesses and/or imbalances noted following the screening, simple corrective exercises can be given to your child and performed at home before/after their class.
