CrossFit Bolton Kids
CrossFit Bolton Kids is not simply a scaled down version of CrossFit, it is entirely absolutely CrossFit geared and designed for a special population and the specific developmental needs of that population (neurological, cognitive and motor).
Since July 2012 CrossFit Bolton Kids has been forging the future of fitness. CrossFit Bolton Kids is a strength and conditioning program that is specifically designed for kids and teenagers and helps them develop a lifelong love of fitness. In a group setting, children and teens participate in fun and engaging workouts that deliver measurable results and prepare them to be well-rounded athletes.
CrossFit Bolton Kids workouts consist of constantly varied, functional movements that deliver a fitness that is broad, general and inclusive. The workouts are scaleable for any participant at any level.
What does this mean?
This means that, for the most part, no two workouts are the same, so kids and teens never get bored and the novelty of each workout keeps them excited about participating.
The functional movements involve exercises that are fundamental to all things that kids need to do when they play such as pull, push, run, throw, climb, lift and jump. All of the movements are taught safely and effectively under the close supervision of thoroughly trained CrossFit Bolton Kids Coaches.
When fitness is defined as broad, inclusive and general it means that participants will become well-rounded athletes who will be better at any and every sport that they play because CrossFit Bolton Kids doesn’t coach them to be good at just one thing. Our workouts will increase physical competence in 10 fitness domains: endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance, and accuracy.
With workouts that are scaleable, CrossFit Bolton Kids can equally benefit a person who is less active or an accomplished athlete by tailoring workouts so that each participant is challenged just enough to deliver measurable results and personal athletic progress.
CrossFit Kids programs are currently in over 1,200 gyms in North America, Australia, Europe, Africa, India, Japan and Panama. With a network of over 2000 CrossFit Kids Trainers, CrossFit Kids is being implemented in over 1,100 schools form preschools to high schools with before-and-after school programs and integration into Physical Education curriculum.
