20 minute class
We teach not only basic physical skills, but also social skills and confidence. Children learn foundation movements like the squat, pushups, pressing movements, core work, climbing, jumping, and elementary gymnastic movements. The coaching staff will emphasize one skill each month to focus on and refine movement. More importantly, you will see your child learn to follow directions, listen, communicate, and play with others. Every class includes game play and positive reinforcement. Your child’s confidence, both physically and mentally, will grow with each class.
30 minute class
The skills they learn are more detailed and may involve light weights. Light weight will be used only when movement is perfected at the discretion of the coach. Exercises will include plyometrics, gymnastics, weight lifting basics, running, rowing, and stretching. Classes continue to include game play and positive reinforcement, as well as discussions on what was learned in each class. We also include focus on leadership skills. As children progress through the program, they will be asked to model movements, lead exercises, and demonstrate an ability to verbally explain exercises.
50 minute class
Our teen program takes training to the next level. Students will continue to learn the basic physical skills, including strength, gymnastics movements, cardiovascular conditioning, agility, coordination, and balance training. In addition they will take a more in-depth exploration of the movements that constitute CrossFit.
Weight training will transition from dumbbells to barbells, with the emphasis still on using the least amount of weight possible to provoke a growth response in the body. Proper form will be priority number one! Perfect movement is rewarded with the opportunity to learn increasingly difficult skills!
Workouts will be of high intensity than the younger kids classes and the vocabulary used in class will be on par with that of the Adult Beginner classes. There will be a strong emphasis on teamwork, communication and leadership skills, knowing that our Teens are just a few short steps from being grown-ups out in the “real” world.
Strongpoint Teens is appropriate for kids who have been in our programs before and also for kids with no CrossFit experience. CrossFit Kids, as with the adults, is scalable for all fitness and skill levels.
