What is CrossFit®?
CrossFit® is built on movements such as rowing, running, jumping rope, carrying objects, and body weight movements and is meant to help build a healthy foundation for everyday activities. Workouts are scaled according to a person’s fitness level and needs. CrossFit is for everyone, every age, every body shape and every fitness level. (Courtesy CrossFit.com)

CrossFit Kids & CrossFit Teens
Whether you are a novice, junior varsity or varsity athlete, CrossFit Kids is a great program for increasing flexibility, endurance, strength while having fun! At the Meriden YMCA's CrossFit Kids program we are forging the future of fitness.
What is CrossFit Kids? (courtesy of CrossFitKids.com)
CrossFit Kids is not simply a scaled down version of CrossFit, it is entirely absolutely CrossFit geared and designed for a special population and the specific developmental needs of that population. (neurological, cognitive, motor)
CrossFit Kids workouts consist of constantly varied, functional movements that deliver a fitness that is broad, inclusive and general and scalable for any participant at any level.
What does this mean?
This means that, for the most part, no two workouts are the same, so kids and teens never get bored and the novelty of each workout keeps them excited about participating.
The functional movements involve exercises that are fundamental to all things that kids need to do when they play-pull, push, run, throw, climb, lift and jump. All of the movements are taught safely and effectively under the close supervision of thoroughly trained CrossFit Kids Trainers.
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.
