CrossFit Kids

 

CrossFit Kids is a strength and conditioning program combining gymnastics, body-weight movements and weight lifting elements designed to be fun for kids of all ages. Since most parents want their kids to grow up healthy and strong, avoiding the common problems associated with childhood inactivity and obesity, we have a program which is built for universal scalability. This makes it the perfect application for any individual regardless of age or experience.

It is important to recognise that CrossFit Kids is not simply a scaled down version of CrossFit, it is entirely CrossFit geared and designed for a special population and the specific developmental needs of that population (neurological, cognitive, motor).

CrossFit Kids delivers a fitness that is designed to be broad, general, inclusive and fun. Healthy living requires that our kids push, pull, run, throw, climb, lift and jump effectively and safely regardless of whether or not they play sport. We take those principal movements and incorporate them into our classes across all ages in a fun way, so that they want to do it. We scale load and intensity but don’t change programs, ultimately resulting in good quality, functional movements in children.

My name is Nicola Howe, I am a mother and work within the NHS as a registered Paediatric Nurse. I was introduced to CrossFit in 2011 when looking to improve my fitness following the birth of my daughter. In june 2011 I obtained the CrossFit Level 1 Trainers certificate and in september 2013 I went on to obtain the CrossFit Kids Trainer certification. Alongside myself is Chris Porter, a firefighter who is an ex professional sportsman and football coach. As a certified CrossFit Level 1 Trainer and CrossFit Kids Trainer, Chris coaches both adults and children. We both have a full and up-to-date CRB clearance. We are very passionate about childrens health and well-being and for them to experience the positivity of CrossFit.
