Kids have a lot of energy to burn throughout the day, and what better way to channel all that energy than with a CrossFit workout. Obviously we’re not talking about your kids lifting 100lb+ weights, but CrossFit’s functional movements are ideal for kids looking to work up a sweat, as well as helping to build healthy workout habits.
Beyond simply keeping active, there are many reasons kids can benefit from CrossFit; from keeping fit to building confidence, CrossFit incorporates kids’ natural ability to play and enjoy themselves. Workouts also don’t take a lot of time, so you can easily keep your kids engaged for short periods of intense activity.
