CrossFit Kids Classes…

By info@vikingcrossfit.com | In Viking Events, VIKING UPCOMING EVENTS | on May 31, 2011

We now have CrossFit Kids!  Classes are on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 3- 3:45 for our Teens class, and 3:45 – 4:30 for our kids class.  First class is FREE.  Call us today and have your kids try a class.

WHAT IS CROSSFIT KIDS?

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, and motor).

CrossFit Kids is the principal strength and conditioning program for many young athletes and the primary P.E. program for many home schools, charter schools.  It is used by athletic teams, martial arts schools and many parents that want their kids to grow up healthy, strong and have a life long love of working out thus avoiding the common problems associated with childhood inactivity and obesity.
Our program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing. Healthy living requires that our kids push, pull, run, throw, climb, lift, jump, effectively and safely regardless of whether or not they play athletics. Athletics is a specialized pursuit.  Our goal is to support the specialist, but reward the generalist.

The CrossFit Kids program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. We’ve used our same routines for 4 year olds and elite high school athletes. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs.  The needs of our second graders and our high school wrestler differ by degree not kind.

CrossFit Kids is a minimalist program.  It is not expensive, often requires little or no equipment therefore can be used across broad socio economic groups providing an easily accessible cost free resource for Elite Physical Fitness to everyone.
There is also a CrossFit Kids Magazine designed to support the CrossFit community as a whole as well as teachers, trainers, and parents actively engaged in coaching CrossFit Kids. The CrossFit Kids magazine details the theory, techniques, and practice used by our coaches in our gym, in essence bringing your garage or gym into ours,  making you part of our Crossfit Family.

    I did “Annie” at home today got a PR 10:42. Now that I got my double unders I was able to take off 4 mins from my time. I am excited about the new place and should stop by around 4 to help out.
