Anchored Athletics CrossFit Kids/Teens program
What are CF Kids Classes Like?
CrossFit Kids workouts consist of constantly varied, functional movements that deliver a fitness that is broad, inclusive and general and can be scaled for any participant at any level.
What does this mean?
This means that, for the most part, no two workouts are the same, so teens never get bored and the novelty of each workout keeps them excited about participating.
The functional movements involve exercises that are fundamental to all things that participants need to do when they play such as pull, push, run, throw, climb, lift and jump. All of the movements are taught safely and effectively under the close supervision of thoroughly qualified CrossFit Trainers.
When fitness is defined as broad, inclusive and general it means that participants will become well-rounded athletes who will be better at any and every sport that they play because CrossFit Kids doesn’t coach them to be good at just one thing.
Our workouts will increase physical competence in 10 fitness domains: Cardiovascular and Respiratory Endurance, Stamina, Strength, Flexibility, Power, Speed, Coordination, Agility, Balance, and Accuracy.
With workouts that can be scaled, CrossFit Kids can equally benefit a kid who is less active or an accomplished athlete by tailoring workouts so that each participant is challenged just enough to deliver measurable results and personal athletic progress.
CrossFit Anchored Athletics mission is to provide a safe, knowledgeable and fun program which will foster a lifelong passion for fitness with our youth.
Our Kids programs are focused on providing a fun, safe, supportive environment and to help teens develop a healthy relationship with fitness.

Q. My Child is a teenager, is CrossFit Kids for her/him?
A. CrossFit Kids is a program for anyone under 18, we focus on teens just as much as we do on kids. Many older teenagers who have been exposed to CrossFit can now do the adult WODs. Where any person begins, depends on the condition they are in as well as exposure to functional movement. Everyone should start at the bottom of the scaling and progress as form and capacity dictate.
