Playing sports requires the ability to perform physical skills and remember details at the same time. One of the ways we develop this ability in children is through games like CrossFit Concentration. Remember the classic game of Memory or Concentration? Well, now imagine in order to flip two of your cards you first had to perform a series of exercises (for example, running 100m and doing 3 burpees). Between each flip, you must do your exercises. Now, not only do you need to remember your cards but you need to remember them while doing other movements and counting other movements. It's a challenge and a good "muscle" to exercise!
