Fit Kids (7-11)
Fit Kids is designed to instill a love for health and fitness for our athletes ages 7-11. Our programming is geared towards working on the 10 general physical skills (cardiovascular/respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance, and accuracy) with a big emphasis on good movement patterns for functional movements and body awareness. Light loading may be appropriate if the athlete shows proficient technique. In this age group we will also introduce good nutrition habits as well as goal setting and leadership skills. We will utilize games and short workouts in a fun environment to reinforce proper technique and moving correctly in space while promoting team work, problem solving, and competition.
Fit Kids is a 6 week program with classes running twice a week on Mondays and Wednesdays from 4:30-5:30pm. This class is capped at 12 athletes with 3 coaches, keeping our coach to athlete ratio low at 1:4.
Our youth programs will be coached by Jessica Bova, a former collegiate and professional athlete, current CrossFit Level 1 and Level 2 certified trainer, and mother of 2. She is trained in youth fitness methodologies, carries CRP/AED certifications, and has all appropriate background clearences. She will be assisted by Sara Campbell, a local Biology teacher who carries her CrossFit Level 1 certified trainer as well as all background clearances, and CPR/AED certifications. Eva Morgan will be our third assistant coach who is currently an athlete in our CrossFit Teens class.
