In an age where television and video games capture children’s attention for hours on end and the school systems growing reluctance to physical activity and an attitude towards winning, CrossFit Kids wants to give children the ability to make physical activity a staple in their developing lifestyle. Fitness should be fun and beneficial and we want everybody, especially children, to understand this.
The CrossFit Kids program is instrumental in improving brain function, building strength, increasing bone density and developing a growing child’s vestibular system – which manages equilibrium and balance. By enrolling your kids into this constantly varied program, there is no question they will receive the physical benefits it provides. What you may not expect is the positive influence that the program will have on the character of your CrossFit Kid.
Whether children have are already involved in athletics or not CrossFit wants them to stay involved with fitness for the rest of their lives. Children already playing sports can benefit not just from the physical development of a CrossFit program but the mental end. The competition is becoming fierce with students working towards athletic scholarships and it is easy to burnout. CrossFit is a great way to remain physical but take a mental break from sport and remember that at the end of the day physical activity is about fun. Children not involved in athletics must find an outlet for physical fitness. An appreciation for fitness will set the groundwork for a lifestyle that will be filled with confidence and a sense of physical well being.
