Healthy living requires that our kids push, pull, run, throw, climb, lift, jump, effectively and safely regardless of their athletic ability.
CrossFit Kids was developed to help kids to grow up healthy, strong and develop a life long love of fitness which will give them the right foundation to avoid common problems associated with childhood inactivity and obesity.
CrossFit Kids classes are designed with kids in mind and combine skill practice, workouts and fun games that focus on building strength and conditioning. Our classes include elements of gymnastics, weight lifting, body weight movements, running, jump roping, and more.
In order for kids to learn and succeed in other sports, they need to start with the basics, which is exactly the reason we teach using the 10 General Physical Skills that are the base for any sport or discipline out there.

Age Appropriate Programs
Kids Class (Ages 5-12)
At this age CrossFit teaches not only basic physical skills, but also social skills and confidence. Children learn foundation movements like the squat, pushups, pull ups, climbing, jumping, and elementary gymnastic movements.
More importantly, you will see your child also learns to follow directions, listen, communicate, and play with others. Every class includes game play and positive reinforcement. Your child’s confidence, both physically and mentally, will grow with each class.
This age group is on the road to becoming “Superheroes” in CrossFit and in life. The skills they learn are more detailed and may involve light weights. Exercises will include plyometrics, gymnastics, weight lifting basics, running, rowing, and stretching.
CrossFit Kids includes a focus on leadership skills. As children progress through the program, they will be asked to model movements, lead exercises, and demonstrate an ability to verbally explain exercises.
Teens (Ages 13 & Up)
This age group needs a specialized workout tailored to their needs. Many teens are involved in organized sports and our workouts will help strengthen and condition them to improve in their sport of choice.
CrossFit Teens also includes a focus on leadership skills. As they progress through the program, they will be asked to model movements, lead exercises, and demonstrate an ability to verbally explain exercises.

While the Team and Individual competitors threw down on the Track and the Stadium, 7 teams of CrossFit teens from across the country gathered in Lot 17 for 4 workouts over 3 days.
The teens, who are all high school age, were on a mission to show the community that CrossFit Kids is not just for little kids. The workouts showcased their conditioning, skill, and strength. Event 1 on Friday was an AMRAP in 12 minutes of 50 power cleans (135/95 lb.), 50 box jumps (30/24 inches) and 150 double-unders, with one team member working at a time. This was followed by a 1-rep-max front squat for each member.

Three Reasons Your Kids Should Try Crossfit from breakingmuscle.com
As a parent it can be daunting to select activities in which to enroll your child. Sports, dance, or martial arts? What about school? Kids have a lot going on these days and they also have their own opinions about things, too. As the founder of CrossFit LA Kids and therefore having coached kids of all ages in CrossFit on a daily basis I can tell you there are many reasons it is a great discipline for your children. CrossFit can be a great base for kids to carry them into other sports and also develop them as healthy fit human beings.
There are three main areas kids gain from CrossFit:
Physical Benefits – 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. Think of friends you have who did not play sports growing up, unless they have consciously worked at it as an adult, they are probably still somewhat uncoordinated. On the other hand, people you know who trained regularly in athletics growing up have a capacity to take on new things still as adults and display efficient and effective movement with their bodies.
Emotional Benefits – CrossFit is similar to sports and martial arts in how it can develop children on an emotional level. In my program we work with kids on 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. In addition, I see a noticeable difference in the confidence level of children who have been doing CrossFit. As their bodies get fitter and their abilities expand, children generally become more physically active and less self-conscious in other athletic situations. I have also seen children lose considerable amounts of weight, resulting in a major change in body image and a big boost in self-esteem. This is especially important and beneficial in the pre-teen years.
Fitness as a Lifestyle – One of the main reasons I started working with children is because it was important to me to instill the value of fitness at an early age. It is also important to make sure kids find fitness fun – if children grow up associating working out with being something enjoyable and clearly seeing the benefits to their bodies and health, then they are more likely to keep fitness as a priority throughout their lives. Eating healthy becomes a natural and normal choice and being active becomes something they just do. Enrolling kids in an all-encompassing program like CrossFit also shows children health and fitness is something their parents prioritize and want to educate them about.
The benefits of a program like CrossFit Kids can be long lasting for children, both physically and mentally, and it is a great activity for children to get into at any age. At my school, CrossFit Los Angeles, we coach kids from ages 5 to 17. At the younger ages, CrossFit develops their bodies across a broad range of skills. By exposing them to a variety of stimuli therefore their bodies adapt and grow both physically and neurologically. As teenagers, CrossFit is a fun and efficient way for young athletes to develop the strength and conditioning base they need to excel in their sport of choice. CrossFit Kids is not available in all cities, but it is opening up at more and more CrossFit affiliates across the country.
My favorite thing as a CrossFit coach is when a whole family ends up working out together. We have numerous families who are all members of my gym. So maybe when you bring your children to check out a CrossFit class, you might check one out yourself, too. Sharing a love for fitness can be not only a time for your family to bond, but also ensures you more happy healthy years together.
