"It's never too early to start a healthy lifestyle."
For thousands of people across the country, going to a regular gym just doesn’t cut it. Instead, they prefer CrossFit routines: like swinging kettlebells, flipping tires, and doing squats and dead lifts until they drop. Now kids as young as 4 are taking part.
The idea behind CrossFit Kids, says co-founder Jeff Martin, is to pair fitness and fun. Since he started the program with his wife Mikki in 2004, it has taken off. There are hundreds of CrossFit Kids classes across the U.S., and more in cities across the world.
The kids version isn’t exactly like the adult classes. On a recent visit, it’s a circuit of pushups, pullups and squats. A few months ago, the focus was on learning dead lifts and an Olympic lift known as “clean and jerk.” These exercises will help the kids develop muscle as well as a love for staying fit. We offer special rates for our student athletes! It is $55 for any middle or high school student.
