As mentioned in an earlier post, we are so excited to welcome the team from CrossFit Kids as regular contributers to our blog, offering health and fitness information, tips, and lesson plan suggestions, along with overall instruction (as needed) around the basic principles of CrossFit Kids, wellness and health.
We are highlighting this information to help you learn to encourage and inspire your children to incorporate health and fitness into their every day lives and to improve their ability to learn. However, It is very important that you consult a doctor before you or your children begin any type of exercise. Always stop exercising immediately if you experience any shortness of breath, dizziness, or pain.
And now here's their very first post which will give you some background about what the CrossFit Kids program is all about...
Introducing CrossFit Kids to the K12 Community
CrossFit Kids is a method for teaching CrossFit to children and teens, ages 3-18. CrossFit is a fitness regimen developed by Coach Greg Glassman over several decades. He was the first person in history to define fitness in a meaningful, measurable way (increased work capacity across broad time and modal domains). CrossFit itself is defined as that which optimizes fitness (constantly varied functional movements performed at relatively high intensity).
