CrossFit Kids was started in California about 7 years ago by Jeff and Mikki Martin of CrossFit Brand X. They have been trialing and testing better ways to train kids to improve overall fitness while maximizing fun and excitement. They have been traveling the world conducting seminars to coaches for the last 3 years. I attended their CrossFit Kids Certification seminar in July 2011 and will be bringing the knowledge gained to our classes.
At CrossFit Kids classes we teach various athletic skills like squatting, throwing, lifting, pushing, pulling, jumping and Gymnastics. The program focuses on making fitness training fun, with games and competition included in classes.
In every class there is emphasis on improving quality of movements. When these movements can be repeated consistently and the child displays understanding of the movement, more advanced exercises are introduced.
