As a grown up, you might think of CrossFit as being about high intensity and speed. While this is true, CrossFit is also totally scalable, for both brand new adults and for children. For children CrossFit is first and foremost about learning good movement patterns. If we build good movement, then strength and speed will have a base from which to grow. In class, this looks like the coaches stopping the students to help them with the exercises, breaking exercises down into pieces, and only "counting" movements if they are done correctly. We build kids with great body mechanics so they can grow up into the high performance athletes they dream of being!
