The value of a good CrossFit Kids Program
Here at CrossFit Adoration we take pride in our coaching staff for both our regular members and our youth members, but do you know the importance of a well versed CrossFit Kids Coach?
Here’s some food for thought.
Coaching kids requires greater care in programming. The coaches must be more flexible and patient because children are harder to coach. Their bodies are changing every day so they will constantly be adapting their body awareness. The concepts that are introduced to them in these classes, if positively charged can and will affect their fitness and wellness for the rest of their lives. CrossFit Kids coaches must not only develop relationships with the children but also with the parents. Our coaches are constantly educating themselves, attentive about environmental safety and very aware of the culture they create. They work on social issues and mindfulness while developing self -esteem. Our coaches also teach the children the difference pain and soreness, keeping them safe and installing confidence. All this is done under the paradigm of “Fitness in Fun”.
Our CrossFit Kids classes are not childcare we are training children how to be healthy humans. Healthy in the mind and in the body. Our classes are designed to impact their lives in a positive way.
