CrossFit Kids is not merely a scaled down version of CrossFit. It is entirely and absolutely CrossFit, geared and designed for a special population and the specific developmental needs of that population.
 —Mikki Martin
CrossFit Kids was founded in 2004 by Jeff and Mikki Martin and is a method for teaching Greg Glassman’s CrossFit to children, ages 3 to 18.
In a group setting, children and teens participate in fun and engaging workouts that are scaleable for any participant, consist of constantly varied functional movements, and deliver a fitness that is broad, inclusive and general. 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 coach them to be good at just one thing. The functional movements are taught with proper movement mechanics, safely and effectively under the close supervision of thoroughly trained CrossFit Kids Trainers. They combine gymnastics movements, body-weight calisthenics, and weightlifting elements to develop capacity across 10 General Physical Skills, with additional focus on elements that encourage bone density and vestibular system development. With workouts that are scaleable, CrossFit Kids can equally benefit a person who is less active or an accomplished athlete by tailoring workouts so that each participant is challenged just enough to deliver measurable results and personal athletic progress.
Sane Nutrition For Kids
Our goal with kids is to get them to think and make good choices about what they eat. To teach them very basic concepts: Sugar is bad, protein is good, and you need to eat some in every meal. Nuts and seeds are good fats. Eat them, don’t avoid them. Pasta, white bread, and white rice are not that good for you. Stuff that’s red, yellow, green and found in the fruit and vegetable aisle is good for you. Eat a lot of it.
Look at your plate, make a fist; eat that much meat every meal. Turn your hand over and fill it with nuts and seeds; eat that much good fat. Fill the rest of your plate with stuff you found in the fruit and vegetable aisle. Fill your plate this way at every meal, and don’t eat more.
Our goal is to have children (and their parents) make the best food choices they can. Our hope is that real, whole foods will replace processed food items.
