CrossFit Teens: 

 

CrossFit Teens is a strength and conditioning program designed for all 13-18 year old to be used as their sport or in addition to the training for their sport.   The program combines age appropriate weightlifting, gymnastics, metabolic conditioning, body awareness, and core training with high intensity to deliver optimal performance as well as establish a lifetime love of fitness.  Proper mechanics of the movements common to CrossFit are developed under the watchful eye of the coach.   CrossFit Teens focuses on the 10 elements of fitness:  Cardiorespiratory Endurance, Stamina, Strength, Flexibility, Power, Speed, Coordination, Agility, Balance, and Accuracy.  CrossFit Teens also boosts self-esteem and both physical and mental confidence.  As with all CrossFit workouts, the CrossFit Teen program will not only benefit the seasoned athlete but those teens who are less active. 

 

If your teenager is active in sports, CrossFit Teens is designed to take them to the next level through proper mechanics, nutrition, and flexibility.   All sports will benefit from using CrossFit as their strength and conditioning program.

 

If your teenager does not participate in a sport, CrossFit Teens is a great program to start nurturing the importance of a healthy lifestyle and life long love for fitness.  Not only are their physical benefits that come from exercise, there are many psychological benefits as well.  (i.e. self esteem, self confidence, sense of belonging in a like minded community, positive body & self image)  The community will foster the essence of focus, perseverance, dedication, and motivation that will spread into all aspects of life.  Encouraging our teens to be stronger and better at life as an adult physically, psychologically, and mentally. 

 

Injury prevention is of utmost importance and we want to protect our teens from overuse that can happen when athletes over specialize in one area or sport.  We encourage our athletes to diversify their training.
