CrossFit Teens (12-19yrs)

Our CrossFit Teens classes are structured more like our adult classes. These one hour classes will focus more on lifting weights with proper technique, high intensity workouts that reinforce good muscle memory, and proper recovery techniques. This class is an excellent way to develop and maintain a solid base of strength and conditioning for any sport. More importantly, strong muscles, bones, and connective tissue all help reduce injury.

CrossFit Teens is the principal strength and conditioning program for many young athletes and the primary P.E. program for many public schools, charter schools, and home schoolers. It is used by athletic teams, martial arts schools and many parents that want their kids to grow up healthy, strong and have a life long love of working out thus avoiding the common problems associated with childhood inactivity and obesity.

Our CrossFit Teens program delivers a base of strength and conditioning that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Teens focus on developing general physical skills like: cardiovascular/respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, coordination, agility, balance, and accuracy. Our specialty is not specializing. Healthy living requires that our kids push, pull, run, throw, climb, lift, jump, effectively and safely regardless of whether or not they play athletics. Athletics is a specialized pursuit. Our goal is to support the specialist, but reward the generalist.

Parents have asked if Teens can just join the adult class, but even the most experienced teen may still go through growth spurts, which can drastically change how he or she moves. Our CrossFit Kids instructors are familiar with this and can safely identify when this happens. We also keep a lower athlete to trainer ratio in our CrossFit Teens classes.
