***MORE ABOUT OUR PROGRAM AND WHY YOUR CHILDREN SHOULD BE INVOLVED***
Whether you are looking to get your children active/stay active, sports training, or looking for
private coaching to focus on sport specific skills; CrossFit Threefold’s successful youth program
has many options to offer. Our program helps our athletes (Children) improve on
the 10 general fitness skills (Strength, Power, Stamina, Agility, Coordination, Flexibility, Balance,
Accuracy, Speed, and Endurance) We are approaching our 4th year of our Youth Program and
have seen and heard from many parents and coaches of the improvements in their children on
and off the field.
CrossFit is great for kids because of the wide variety of discipline it involves, from
weightlifting to calisthenics to gymnastics. Kids brains are like little sponges, itching to make
neurological connections and adaptations. These connections in the brain are made in response
to stimuli. The more kids can be exposed to when they are young, the more connections and
capacities they develop and retain for the rest of their lives. Think of friends you have who did
not play sports growing up, unless they have consciously worked at it as an adult, they are
probably still somewhat uncoordinated. On the other hand, people you know who trained
regularly in athletics growing up have a capacity to take on new things still as adults and display
efficient and effective movement with their bodies.
CrossFit is similar to sports and martial arts in how it can develop children on an emotional
level. In our program we work with kids on sportsmanship, leadership, teamwork, listening
skills, self-discipline and manners. These are all skills, though not physical, that will help kids
become successful later in life. In addition, we see a noticeable difference in the confidence
level of children who have been doing CrossFit. As their bodies get fitter and their abilities
expand, children generally become more physically active and less self-conscious in other
athletic situations. We have also seen children lose considerable amounts of unhealthy weight,
resulting in a major change in body image and a big boost in self-esteem. This is especially
important and beneficial in the pre-teen years.
Fitness as a Lifestyle:
It is also important to make sure kids find fitness fun – if children grow up associating working
out with being something enjoyable and clearly seeing the benefits to their bodies and health,
then they are more likely to keep fitness as a priority throughout their lives. Eating healthy
becomes a natural and normal choice and being active becomes something they just do.
Enrolling kids in an all-encompassing strength and conditioning program like CrossFit also
shows children health and fitness is something their parents prioritize and want to educate
The benefits of a program like CrossFit can be long lasting for children, both physically and
mentally, and it is a great activity for children to get into at any age. At CrossFit Threefold we
coach kids from ages 5 to 18. At the younger ages, CrossFit develops their bodies across a
broad range of skills. By exposing them to a variety of stimuli therefore their bodies adapt
and grow both physically and neurologically, which keeps them balanced and helps with
injury prevention. As teenagers, CrossFit is a fun and efficient way for young athletes to
develop the strength and conditioning base they need to excel in their sport of choice!
