What Does CrossFit Wachusett Kids Teach?
CrossFit Wachusett Kids uses a combination of skill practice, workouts and games to build strength and conditioning in children. Our classes include elements of gymnastics, weightlifting, body weight movements, running, jump roping, and more.
Specifically, CrossFit Wachusett Kids teaches the 10 General Physical Skills. These skills are the base for any sport or discipline your child may pursue.
You will see your child have an increased ability to learn and succeed in other sports, once they have a base in CrossFit.
Most importantly, the goal of CrossFit Kids is to make exercise a fun activity – and to teach kids that it’s something they can carry into their adult lives, not because they have to, but because they want to!
