The CrossFit Kids program uses the template of randomized, functional exercises, performed at high intensity. Adjustments are made to accommodate the specific needs and requirements of kids. Workouts consist of exercises containing elements of physical skills, while special attention is paid to utilizing progressions for difficult or compound movements, and progressive loading dictated by size, age and form. CrossFit Kids often perform workouts with a time component, moving quickly from one exercise to the next, thereby creating the intensity necessary to achieve these goals. Highly vigorous exercises like box jumps, squats, jump rope, sprints, etc. create aerobic and metabolic changes which increase cardiovascular/respiratory endurance and stamina. This positively impacts the body’s capacity for exercise and lays the foundation for the remaining general physical skills. My girls are a little young still, but I have them very interested in exercise. They know daddy works out so they think it is cool and fun.
