CrossFit workouts are designed for EVERYONE! Rather than having one workout for older women and another for hardcore athletes – there’s ONE workout each day that is completely scalable based on your skill. For example, if the workout calls for squats with 135 pounds but you can only do squats with no weight at all, then that’s where you’ll start. If you can’t do squats at all, a similar movement will be substituted, and if the number of reps is too many for your current ability, that will be reduced. As you get stronger and more experienced you’ll work your way towards eventually doing the workouts as prescribed. The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree, not kind. That’s right, we have athletes which range from preschool age to grandparents!
CROSSFIT PRESCHOOL, KIDS, & TEENS
Our CrossFit Preschool, Kids and Pre-Teen and Teens classes are not a scaled down version of our regular CrossFit classes. They are entirely geared and designed for a special population with the specific developmental needs of that population (neurological, cognitive, and motor).
The Pre-K Program is designed to preschool and Kindergarten age CrossFit concepts. These classes are relatively short and the play-based curriculum is entirely geared towards teaching kids to think of exercise as FUN! We work on body awareness and coordination through squats, leg coordination, skipping, jumping, grip strength development, rolling, spinning, balance and planking. These are fundamental and foundational movements that will be built upon later in life. We also work hard on building our muscles. Classes run on a 4 week session basis.
The Ground Up CrossFit Kids program focuses on having fun and learning to love fitness. This class builds on the foundation of “fun” of the CrossFit Pre-K class. This class builds the athletic foundation as well as expands to include foundational and auxiliary movements which is accommodated to the developing abilities of kids. The goal of the pre-teen program is to develop and improve general physical fitness in order to prepare kids to be safe in sports (and in life in general). But, despite the increased physical demands of the class, the focus of the youth program is still on fun! Classes are scheduled year around, two times a week.
The Ground Up Pre-Teen program is the perfect bridge between the fun of the kid’s class, and the increased intensity of the teen class. Our Pre-Teens locus it to learn proper mechanics and consistency in a safe, supportive environment. This class builds the athletic foundation as well as expands to include foundational and auxiliary movements which is accommodated to the developing abilities of kids. The goal of the pre-teen program is to develop and improve general physical fitness in order to prepare kids to be safe in sports (and in life in general). But, despite the increased physical demands of the class, the focus of the pre-teen program is still on fun! The workouts are more performance-based and light loads are introduced with the goal of preparing the athletes for the rigors of sport and the next level of CrossFit all in an age-appropriate setting that will allow the athlete to thrive. Classes are scheduled 2 or 3 times per week depending on the time of year.
Our Teen program has one major goal in mind- preparation for performance. This program will teach how to be explosive and powerful in whatever athletic endeavor they choose to participate in. On top of that, because the workouts are constantly varied, they are less likely to fall prey to the overuse injuries that plague common training routines and year-round sports. When fitness is defined as broad, inclusive and general it means that participants will become well-rounded athletes who will be better at any and every sport that they play because CrossFit Kids doesn’t train them to be good at just one thing. Classes are scheduled 2 or 3 times per week depending on the time of year.
LeanFit is a targeted program that incorporates many different elements of fitness. It is not CrossFit but is a great combination of CrossFit type training with a significant focus on lighter weights, longer workouts, and core work. LeanFit workouts are designed to be highly intense! The core of LeanFit is functional and compound movements which utilize the entire body. These are movements like squats, lunges, push-ups, and other bodyweight movements. For fun we sprinkle in some light weights, rowing, jump roping and running. This methodology can help you develop a lean, defined physique and get your metabolism the jump start it needs! The cherry on top is some intense core work to work on beastly abs!
