CrossFit Kids / Jr. Varsity

CrossFit Kids

-Thursdays at 4:30-5:30pm

CrossFit Kids emphasizes on quality movement through broad and inclusive activities, designed to promote fun fitness. This program is for ages 5 through 9 and focuses on providing kids with the opportunity to excel in their fitness and skill level.

CrossFit Kids at Reebok CrossFit Ramsay is dedicated to creating a program that has a positive impact on all athletes (yes, anyone who walks into our gym is referred to as an ‘athlete’), empowering them to be the best version of themselves possible.

A typical CrossFit Kids class looks like this:

1) Team-Based Warmup/Team Building Activity

2) Skill Development (Gymnastics, Stability, Coordination, Explosiveness to name a few)

3) WOD – Workout of the Day (typically with a mental component added in)

4) Cooldown Game and Review

The most common question from the kids: “Can we stay extra long and try climbing the rope again?” Most common comment from adults: “I wish I’d had this when I was a kid!” Most common comment from coaches: “We CAN’T believe the improvement in Jimmy’s play and overall focus.” Most common comment from teachers: “Can you come to OUR school and get our kids paying attention like you do at the gym?”

Junior Varsity (JV)

-Thursdays at 5:30-6:30

Junior Varsity (JV) prepares kids aged 10-15 for all-around athleticism. They get stronger, faster, more powerful, and more flexible. They learn about performance nutrition, and get set up to be an ‘athlete for life,’ whether within CrossFit, another sport, or just a fitter individual.

JV also delivers valuable lessons about life: hard work, character, courage and overcoming adversity. Many call it, “the sport for kids who don’t play sports,” because it’s also fun. John Ratey, author of Spark! and brain researcher at Harvard, referred to the CrossFit Kids programs as ‘collaborative competition,’ because kids cheer for one another.

Our groups produce athletes – even youth athletes- that have a wide skillset; are excellent at everything without specializing at a particular sport; and enjoy movement for its own sake. In an inclusive atmosphere, workouts are ‘scaled’: kids and teens do challenges that are appropriate for their current level and age. They participate as a group of individuals. They learn trust, cohesion, self-accountability, and confidence unlike anything we’ve ever seen elsewhere.

A typical Junior Varsity class looks like this:

1) Team-based warmup

2) Skill & Strength development

3) WOD – Workout of the Day

4) Cooldown activity and review
