Crossfit Kids is a specific program for children and teenagers
We teach in two age groups: Kids (9-13 years) and Teens (13-17 years).
With the Kids, the emphasis is on fun, cooperation and self-confidence. For the Teens, the emphasis is on the Crossfit Fundamentals and Workouts. Crossfit Kids given by specifically trained trainers is safe and has no risks of developmental problems.
What do we do with the Kids (9-13yrs)?
With the Kids, the focus is on fun, cooperation and self-confidence. We use derived Crossfit movements such as the squat, pushing and pulling movements, lifting, moving, jumping and interval conditioning forms. This is often in game form. The emphasis is not on performance, but on improvement. Through play, children develop many skills and thus improve in strength, speed, coordination, condition and self-confidence.
What do we do at the Teens (13-17yrs)
Teenagers are physically fit to learn the Crossfit Fundamentals such as Gymnastics, Olympic Weightlifting and Interval Conditioning Training. This is built up in a responsible way because teenagers are still developing. By learning Crossfit Fundamentals and performing workouts, teens become faster, stronger and more confident.
My child is not (yet) very skilled in motor skills. Can he/she participate in the lesson?
Yes, of course. All children can participate. The exercises are adapted per child to his or her level. We perform many exercises side by side and yet we work in groups. Many children progress quickly when they participate in the lesson.
My child has performance anxiety or finds it very exciting to participate. Is Crossfit suitable?
Yes, of course. All children are taken care of by our experienced trainers and can immediately participate in the lesson. They will have positive experiences from the first lesson, which will increase their self-confidence.
