CrossFit Kids/Teens Year Round Program

What is CrossFit Kids/Teens?

CrossFit Kids is a generalized strength and conditioning program of constantly varied, functional movements. The program utilizes the CrossFit methodology applied in a scaled manner suitable for children and focuses on the concept of pairing fitness with fun. CrossFit Kids incorporates many of the same movements done in the adult classes. Life, sport, and fitness require us to be able to run, jump, throw, hop, leap, pull, and push and our Kids program teaches just that in a fun and supportive environment. At CrossFit Kids children learn skills, knowledge, and discipline that help adolescents excel in everyday life and perform at a higher level in the classroom and on the playground.

Who is the Coach?

Sara House

After gradating from Colorado State University, I immediately began working with children of all ages as a neuropsychological consultant. As a neuropsychological consultant, I helped assess brain function of children of various ages and cognitive levels. From there I went on to earn my MA in Special Education and teaching licensure. I have had the privilege to teach 3rd graders all the way into college, ranging from mild and moderate learning disabilities, twice exceptional, AP courses and the general population. It has been absolute dream come true to pair my two passions of teaching and CrossFit.

Research has shown that learning is optimal following exercise. We try to capitalize on this time by incorporating a study session following each CF Kids and CF Teens class. During these sessions athletes are encouraged to bring material or homework from their most difficult subject. I will help athletes for the remaining class time with their subject or study skills.

FAQ

  • What Should my Kid Wear?

    Kids should come in athletic clothing and should bring a water bottle. Either tennis shoes or skate shoes (like DCs or Vans) are great footwear for what we do.
  • Parents Role

    We ask parents not to give instruction, coaching, or correction during class. Parents have the option to drop-off and pick-up their child or to wait in the couch area of the shop. Parents are not permitted to participate in the class or wander the floor.
