“CrossFit Kids is a method for teaching Greg Glassman’s CrossFit to children ages 3-18. Based on the principle of Mechanics, Consistency and then 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. Not only that, a vast body of research indicates that exercise is beneficial to cognitive function, which means consistent adherence to the program can have a positive impact on children’s academic achievement.
CrossFit Kids is meant to be BIG fun for all ages. Broad-Inclusive-General fun. Fun means we provide an active alternative to sedentary pursuits, which means less childhood obesity and all-around better health for our children. Further, the needs of second graders and high-school varsity wrestlers differ by degree and not kind; the program is scalable for any age or experience level and accounts for the varied maturation status one can find in a class full of kids. CrossFit Kids is designed to be minimalist; it is inexpensive and often requires little or no equipment, allowing a wide array of socioeconomic groups an opportunity to be physically fit and physically active throughout their lives.”
We at New Order CrossFit have embraced these principles and have seen how they can affect our children in a wonderfully positive way. We have taken our same principles and values that have made our regular CrossFit into a great community and strive to instill those values upon our children. The answer to many problems and challenges our children face can be found through strengthening their bodies and minds through activity and building confidence.
Our CrossFit Kids program currently meets on Thursday at 4:15pm and Saturdays from 9:00am. We offer a 10 visit punchcard for $75. Monthly membership available for $60 per month. Each additional family member will be an add on of $30. No contract necessary. If you think your child or children would be interested in trying it out for free please contact us here.
