FITNESS CLASSES FOR CHILDREN
CrossFit Kids & Teens at Colchester Fitness Centre
CrossFit Kids is a fitness program designed to encourage children and teenagers to develop healthy habits, and adopt an active lifestyle from a young age. The Kids and Teens classes at CrossFit DireWolf run via different age groups:
✭ Kids (3-10 years of age)
The class schedule for our younger age group breaks out into sub-groups based on age and ability. That way, all attendees remain engaged in the session and are challenged by the programmed activities.
✭ Teens (11-16 years of age)
Each Kid and Teen will progress at their own pace, and development is unique to the individual. To allow for different levels of experience, confidence, and progress, the age groups in our term time schedule are fluid. If you’re unsure which will be the best fit for your Kid or Teen, contact Coach Ali.
✭ Teens+ (13-16 years of age)
In addition to our Open Saturday Teens class, this mid-week session is for the older age group to spend extra time on more advanced CrossFit movements including Gymnastics and Olympic Lifting.
Operating in a relaxed, fun environment, children will enjoy learning safe movement patterns as well as what it means to be “fit”.
