CrossFit Kids & Teens is a progressive coach led kids gym program offering classes in the following age groups: Kids – 5 to 11yrs, Junior Teens – 10 to 14yrs and Teens – 13 to 18yrs. Following this, teenagers matriculate into adult CrossFit classes. The class structure across the age groups is generally the same. Classes include a warmup, skill drills and workout and exercise intensive games. For junior teens and teens we’d encourage post workout study as research has found there is an optimal learning capacity of the brain for 20-40 minutes after exercise. The CrossFit Auckland Kids & Teens fitness program combines gymnastics, body weight calisthenics and weightlifting elements to develop capacity across ten general physical skills: cardio-respiratory endurance, power, strength, stamina, speed, agility, flexibility, balance, accuracy, and co-ordination. Additional elements that encourage bone density development, cross body movements and exercises that involve the vestibular system are also incorporated. Children and teens have a greater opportunity (relative to adults) to maximise their physical skills when exposed to this stimulus during years of peak development. The elements are combined to keep children engaged and entertained, while teaching them proper movement technique and creating a broad athletic foundation. Nutrition is also discussed as the basis of athletic performance and health within a supportive community. For CrossFit Auckland Kids & Teens we pair fitness and fun to create a lifelong love of health and fitness.
