CROSSFIT FOR TEENS
CrossFit for Teens is designed for athletes ages 12-16. No prior CrossFit or athletic experiene is necessary before joining this program.
We'll structure the classes very similar to our adult CrossFit classes with some adjustments to the exercise program.
Given the (hectic) nature of a Teen's schedule, this membership is available as a 10-session punch card (with 1 year expiration date) or per class basis.
Why CrossFit For Teens?
CrossFit is great for kids & teens because it develops their bodies across a broad range of skills that carry over into sports and healthy life choices. It's a fun and effective way for young athletes to build the strength and conditioning they need to excel in physical activities.
The wide variety of disciplines involved in CrossFit including weightlifting, calisthenics and gymnastics, help make connections and develope skills they will retain for the rest of their lives.
CrossFit is similar to sports in how it can develop children on an emotional level.
- Sportsmanship -
- Leadership -
- Teamwork -
- Listening Skills -
- Self-Discipline -
These are all skills, though not physical, that will help kids become successful later in life. There's a noticeable difference in the confidence level of children who have been doing CrossFit. As their bodies get fitter and their abilities expand, they generally become more physically active and less self-conscious.
Fitness as a Lifestyle
One of the main reasons we added a teens program is because it's important to us to instill the value of fitness at an early age. It's also important to make sure kids find fitness fun – if children grow up associating working out with being something enjoyable and clearly seeing the benefits to their bodies and health, then they are more likely to keep fitness as a priority throughout their lives. Eating healthy becomes a natural and normal choice and being active becomes something they just do. Enrolling teens in an all-encompassing program like CrossFit also shows them that health & fitness is something their parents prioritize and want to educate them about.
