4. Emotional Release
Kids get the same release from dropping heavy weights as adults do. I cannot tell you how many times my pre-teen has complained about going to Crossfit only to tell me, “I’m so glad I worked out today,” after the class was over. And, now that my son is almost 13 and his hormones are raging there’s no better time in his life to have access to this type of emotional outlet.
