CrossFit: It’s For Kids Too!
If you’re into CrossFit, you already know what an outstanding total-body workout it provides.
If you’re not into CrossFit and you are a parent looking for ways to help your children get their much-needed exercise, you might be surprised to learn that CrossFit Kids is a fun, safe and affordable option.
Forget what you may have heard about CrossFit being a military style workout that will promote a bulging bodybuilder type of physique.
As anyone at CrossFit Bolton will tell you, that’s not what it’s about.
The truth is that CrossFit is a customizable style of exercise designed to get people of all ages into their optimal physical condition.
And that definitely applies to kids between the ages of five and 17 who will not only get fitter, but who will also gain so much more.
A good parent is always concerned about the safety and well being of their kids. With CrossFit, your feeling of concern turns into comfort.
Your kids will receive coaching from certified trainers who will provide direction and encouragement. They will also ensure that no kid will be left unsupervised.
In other words, kids won’t be fixated on performing beyond their means.
Instead, qualified CrossFit Bolton Kids coaches will craft a program customized for their specific training levels and kids will be put into groups of similar ages.
Children will be:
They will be taught proper training techniques and their workouts will ensure that all body parts receive equal training, thereby reducing the risk of injuries in the CrossFit gym or even on the ice, courts or field.
Everyone, young and old alike, wants to enjoy themselves.
If something feels like fun, we can’t get enough. That’s why it’s important to associate fitness with fun from a young age.
But, that’s hard to accomplish with a rigid, never-changing approach to exercising, even if it involves the football field or hockey rink.
The difference with CrossFit Kids WODs is that no two workouts are quite the same and because of that it never becomes boring.
There are varied and specific challenges that forces workouts to remain interesting and kids often have so much fun with it that they don’t want to leave at the end of class.
The Canadian physical fitness guidelines indicates that children should get at least 60 minutes of daily moderate to vigorous activity each day.
But, does anyone really enjoy waking up extra early to get to hockey or football practice before the start of the school day?
Even early birds often have difficulty meeting all the demands of team sports.
There are the inflexible game and practice schedules and the significant expense of pads, sticks and helmets, to name only a few things.
With CrossFit, your kids gain all the perks of team sports, without all the hassles.
CrossFit for beginners classes are available at times that are convenient to everyone and that means greater productivity for all involved.
CrossFit training is like no other form of exercise.
That’s because with CrossFit the body receives the most balanced stimulation possible.
Each CrossFit workout will help kids develop their:
- Cardiovascular endurance
But, that’s only the noticeable physical advantages that come from CrossFit.
A CrossFit kid is a focused child with a sense of belonging to a bigger community of like-minded peers.
With that newfound focus, many experience improvements in their schoolwork.
They’ll also be building friendships and a healthier body image.
With CrossFit they’ll not only be healthier, but they’ll also feel enriched in immeasurable ways.
