CROSSFIT KIDS

COMING THIS SUMMER!

CROSSFIT KIDS IS COMING TO RIVER RAISIN CROSSFIT THIS SUMMER!

CrossFit Kids teaches foundational movement patterns, providing children with a portion of their prescribed amount of exercise for the week, improving muscular fitness, engineering endless opportunities for success, and discussing roles for food while keeping the class and its information fun and engaging. As an infinitely scalable program, CrossFit Kids can also bring the benefits of physical activity to disadvantaged populations.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF CROSSFIT KIDS?

Physically, CrossFit Kids works to battle childhood obesity and rising rates of Type 2 diabetes in kids. According to the World Health Organization, 39 million children around the world are overweight or obese. Lifestyle is the root cause of these problems. If a child is active and avoids eating and drinking processed carbohydrates, these maladies are virtually impossible to contract.

With the rise of technology, kids are spending more time being sedentary on their devices rather than moving their bodies throughout the day. With the increase in consumption of highly processed foods and added sugars, the number of kids suffering from health issues is rising. The CrossFit Kids program adds functional movements delivered in fun classes into a kid’s life to get them moving their bodies and enjoying exercise. By getting our kids to move their bodies, eat right, and enjoy both, they will be unlikely to lead an unhealthy lifestyle that ends up with these problems. If they are already afflicted with these problems, they have the opportunity to stop their progression and most likely reverse it.

Oftentimes, kids who partake in CrossFit find that it helps them perform better in their chosen sport as well. Since CrossFit elicits a broad and well-rounded level of fitness, the benefits easily carry over into other sports and can be a great compliment to sport-specific training.

In addition to the physical, there are countless cognitive benefits of training with CrossFit Kids. A significant amount of education occurs within the various CrossFit Kids classes, which means while kids are exercising their bodies, they’re also exercising their brains. As they learn, new connections are formed in the brain leading to improved attention, mood, and self-confidence.
