What is CrossFit Teens?

Specifically designed to help young adults develop a lifetime love of fitness while strengthening their neurological, cognitive and motor skills, CrossFit Teens is an inclusive strength and conditioning program for boys and girls of all fitness levels aged 12 and up. Combining elements of gymnastics, body weight calisthenics, and weightlifting, the program helps our youth develop capacity across the ten general physical skills: Cardiovascular and Respiratory Endurance, Stamina, Strength, Flexibility, Power, Speed, Coordination, Agility, Balance and Accuracy. For 60 minutes in a class setting, CrossFit Teens take part in a warmup, skill work and short workouts of 5-15 minutes in length that consist of constantly varied, functional movements. To keep them excited and engaged, no two workouts are ever alike, and classes end with a fitness-related game.

The primary goals of this program include:

  • Demonstrate that exercising can be FUN!
  • Make each child who sets foot in our gym feel welcome
  • Introduce exercises scalable for children of varying fitness levels
  • Help children become well-rounded athletes
  • Help children move faster and more efficiently
  • Teach children how to move properly to avoid sports injuries
  • Boost skills along with confidence levels
  • Instill a positive and healthy body image
  • Focus on life skills such as concentration, problem solving, discipline, perseverance, dedication and motivation

All classes are taught safely and effectively under the close supervision of trainers who have a CrossFit Level 1 and CrossFit Kids Certificate. We are constantly reviewing material, so your youth can join the program at any time and not feel left out or behind. The functional movements involve exercises that are fundamental to all things kids need to do when they pull, push, run, throw, climb, lift and jump. Most importantly, by involving your youth in our program, we will provide a foundation to help them avoid common problems associated with childhood inactivity and obesity.
