We’ve got a write up from Emma G today about CrossFit Kids
While watching the Olympics in London this week, I’ve noticed a common trend among Gold medallists. That regardless of their sport, their performance looked effortless. Why? because these top Olympians are extremely athletic.
But what defines being ‘athletic’? Well, it means to be good at fundamental movement patterns like squatting, lifting, throwing, pushing, pulling jumping and gymnastics (…sound familiar?). Having the ability to perform these movements to a high standard means the necessary speed, skill, co-ordination or agility required for a particular sport becomes a relatively easy task; because the foundation has been built.
All of us at Crossfit struggle with at least one of these movements. However, imagine how your squat, kipping pull-ups and handstands would look if you had learnt the correct technique when you were at primary school!
That’s what we aim to achieve with our Crossfit Birkenhead Kids Program. We teach the classic Crossfit movements but keep them fun, by creating games and competitions with them.
We have also recently started to learn about nutrition, focusing on how the food that nature provides for us creates healthy bodies.
