At CrossFit Willow Glen, we offer a CrossFit Kids program. Our CrossFit Kids classes are not a scaled down version of our regular CrossFit classes. They are entirely geared and designed for a special population with the specific developmental needs of that population (neurological, cognitive, and motor).
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. CrossFit Kids workouts consist of constantly varied, functional movements delivering broad fitness, inclusive, general and scaleable for any participant at any level. 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 train them to be good at just one thing.
For the most part, no two CrossFit Kids 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 our thoroughly trained CrossFit Kids coaches. Our workouts will increase physical competence in 10 fitness domains: cardiovascular and respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance, and accuracy.
Our CrossFit Kids classes are held two days a week in the afternoons. Check our class schedule.
