They'll learn to move well in a fun-filled way, which is vitally important for a child's mental and physical development. Moving around produces endorphins, which mean kids suffer less stress, they feel better and can therefore perform better.
Kids will be split into two different age groups (7-12 years and 13-17 years) and they'll learn tricks of the trade that will prepare them for weight training when they get older.
Last but not least, CrossFit is a form of functional training. This means it can quite often be the perfect complement to another sport: your child becomes stronger, fitter and less prone to injury!

Last month we talked about weightlifting and now this month it's the turn of gymnastics, a second major discipline in our amazing 'Sport of Fitness' that we practise every day in our gym.
One of the three main disciplines in our 'Sport of Fitness' is weightlifting and here in our community, we tend to use the English term ‘weightlifting'. The origins of the most common lifts (the ‘Snatch’ and the ‘Clean and Jerk’) can be found directly in the Olympic discipline. Although the aim of the movements – lifting the weight fully above your head – is the same in both worlds, the Olympic version of the movements places more emphasis on the technical aspects, whereas CrossFit is mainly about holding a strong position.
