Kid’s Fit makes fitness fun, setting the stage for a lifelong love of movement.
What Will My Child Gain From Kid’s Fit at CrossFit Recreate?
Kid’s Fit creates a positive relationship with exercise and fitness in our youth. We teach these young athletes to move correctly, improve coordination, and have fun.
Your child will gain physical strength, mental awareness, learn new skills, proper body mechanics, and become more body aware. Kid’s Fit classes can also help to enhance sports performance, and reduce the risk of sport-related injury. Research also suggests that exercise is beneficial to cognitive function. This means that consistent participation in Kid’s Fit can have a positive impact on your child’s academic performance as well.
Kid’s Fit training will improve your child’s quality of life inside and outside of the gym. This program will help to build confidence and allow kids to become the best version of themselves possible.
We Aim To:
Kid’s Fit is designed for EVERY child to have fun with movement. As you watch your child grow in ability and confidence, you will also see them learn that hard work results in success. We aim to develop them not only as young athletes, but as leaders and problem solvers. The class interaction and teamwork will challenge them to think while simultaneously being physically stimulated.
What Does Kid’s Fit Teach?
We use a combination of skill practice, workouts and games to build strength and conditioning in children. Our classes include elements of gymnastics, weight lifting, and body weight movements; as well as activities kids do on a day-to-day basis such as: pull, push, run, throw, climb, lift and jump. We will teach them how to execute these functional movements in the safest and most efficient manner. This will in turn reduce their risk of injury and improve their physical fitness.
Specifically, Kid’s Fit teaches the 10 General Physical Skills. These skills are the base for any sport or discipline your child may pursue. You will see your child have an increased ability to learn and succeed in other sports once they have built a foundation at CrossFit Recreate.
