CrossFit Kids & Teens

What is CrossFit Kids?

CrossFit Training for Kids & Teens in East Auckland CrossFit Kids is not simply a scaled down version of CrossFit, it is entirely and absolutely CrossFit geared toward kids and their specific developmental needs. CrossFit Kids is the principal strength and conditioning program for many young athletes and the primary P.E. program for many home schools, charter schools. It is used by athletic teams, martial arts schools and many parents that want their kids to grow up healthy, strong and have a life long love of working out and achieving goals, thus avoiding the common problems associated with childhood inactivity and obesity. Our program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Our specialty is not specialising. Healthy living requires that our kids push, pull, run, throw, climb, lift, jump, effectively and safely regardless of whether or not they are athletes. Athletics is a specialised pursuit. Our goal is to support the specialist, but reward the generalist. The CrossFit Kids program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. We’ve used our same routines for 4 year olds and elite high school athletes. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs. The needs of our second graders and our high school wrestler differ by degree not kind. – Jeff & Mikki Martin – Founders, CrossFit Kids

About our Kids Programme

CrossFit East Auckland's Gen RX'd CrossFit Kids programme is a fitness programme especially designed for kids and teens combining movements from gymnastics and athletics into a fun, action packed fitness programme that helps kids develop endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance & accuracy. As our children are becoming more and more sedentary and with childhood obesity rising at an alarming rate, there is a growing need to incorporate health and fitness into the lives of our kids. By laying a solid foundation of fitness ideals from an early age, we can reduce risk of disease, injury, and build a better future for our young ones. Since CrossFit is a generalist program, our kids program follows a similar philosophy. We cover the broad skills and movements essential for life and athletics. Improvements in the gym translate directly to better performance on the rugby field as well as the playground. Sessions are structured around a briefing, warm-up, technical focus and a workout of the day known as a 'WoD' and games. Emphasis is placed on kids having fun exercising, reaching goals and teamwork. In addition good nutrition and effective study habits are also actively encouraged. CrossFit East Auckland's Kid's and Teen's coaches must complete a rigorous program of certifications, background screening and internship prior to leading a CrossFit Kids class. All of our CrossFit Kids Coaches are required to achieve CrossFit and CrossFit Kids certifications, followed by many hours observing and assisting in class.
