12 Labours CrossFit Kids

CrossFit Kids was founded in 2004 by Jeff and Mikki Martin and is a method for teaching Greg Glassman’s CrossFit to children, ages 3-18. Based on the principle of Mechanics => Consistency => 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.***

The Crossfit Kids coaches at our locations are dedicated to this methodology as well as the Crossfit Kids mission: Doing what is best for children.

The Workouts of the Day (WOD) that we progam are intended to get kids moving in new ways, all while having a ton of fun. As saftey is our paramount concern, good form and proper technique is always stressed while doing the various movements.

A typical Saturday at Crossfit Kids is 30 minutes and includes:

  • A warmup
  • A skill to focus on for the day
  • The WOD featuring the skill
  • A game

Although all the kids will do the same movements and skills, the WOD is tailored to fit the specific needs of the kids, resulting in two different tracks for the WOD. We carefully look at age, ability and movement patterns to determine the most appropriate placement for the kids in one of the two tracks.

Everyone looks forward to the fun games at the end of the class. These vary from week to week, and when the kids are begging at the end to play one more time and don't want to leave, we know it is has been a successful class.

So, come out and get moving on Saturday with us!
