Why CrossFit for kids?

Posted by Shirley Brown : Thursday, Apr 26, 2012

CrossFit Kids is still kind of new. Some of you might say, why not just do sports. Some of you reading this might now even know what we do or why we do it. Well, let me tell you there are many reasons why CrossFit Kids is a awesome activity for your kid.
1. Kids need to move- it's a fact and part of growing up, kids need physical activity. We have way too many things in life that promote inactivity. So, I teach kids moving and and feel better.
2. It's FUN! It's actually a lot of fun. Many of our students don't really know that they are working out. They are having such a good time moving, laughing and playing that the "workout" doesn't seem like anything more than play
3. Kids will get much more than improved fitness from CrossFit LA kids. We use fitness as a method to teach about responsibility, commitment and self confidence. Each day your child comes here we challenge them. We challenge them to make them better, better kids and better people!
