What is CrossFit Kids?

CrossFit Kids is not simply a scaled down version of CrossFit, it is entirely absolutely CrossFit, geared and designed for a special population and the specific developmental needs of that population. (neurological, cognitive, motor)

Since late 2004 CrossFit Kids has been forging the future of fitness and has spread throughout the world on the tail of CrossFit for parents. CrossFit Kids is an evidence-based strength and conditioning program which integrates functional movements that promote universal motor-recruitment patterns into constantly varied workouts. "Constantly varied" means no two workouts are the same, so kids and teens never get bored and the novelty of each workout keeps them excited about participating. The functional movements involve exercises that are fundamental to all things that kids need to do when they play—pull, push, run, throw, climb, lift and jump. All of the movements are taught safely and effectively under a CrossFit Kids certified trainer’s expert supervision.

At RCFN, we know your kids already come wired for fun – we help you program them to consistently equate fun with fitness!

Minimize injury and Get Strong

CrossFit Kids focused and progressive training classes not only shield young athletes from injury, they’ll teach them proper and efficient “mechanics” (technique). Learning the mechanics of how to execute proper and efficient functional movements will set kids up for success – both in sport and in life. It is musculoskeletal weakness which lies at the root of overuse injuries and most sport trauma –career-enders for many promising young athletes. These injuries are completely preventable. RCFN classes focus exclusively on mechanics and consistency. We cultivate good scapular control and hip stability, building balanced musculoskeletal strength, teaching efficiency and demanding good movement patterns.

CrossFit Kids defies specialization by defining fitness in broad, inclusive and general terms, leading its participants to become more well-rounded athletes, faster, more powerful, and more accurate at any and every sport that they play. CrossFit Kids workouts increase physical competence in 10 fitness domains: cardiovascular and respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance, and accuracy. With workouts that are scalable, CrossFit Kids equally benefits kids who are less active as well as accomplished athletes with tailored workouts which challenge all participants to deliver measurable results and personal athletic progress.

With a growing network of CrossFit Kids trainers, CrossFit Kids is being integrated worldwide into the physical education curriculum of preschools, middle schools, and high schools, and offered in thousands of before- and after-school programs.  Check out Benni's research on the efficacy of integrating CrossFit Kids into German schools here.
