What will my child gain from participating in CrossFit Kids?
CrossFit Aptos Kids makes fitness and health fun, setting the stage for a lifelong love of movement!
Your child will gain physical strength and mental awareness. In addition, you will see your child learning new skills, notice them making better food choices, becoming more focused in school, transitioning to new sports easier, and having a reduced risk of sports-related injury.
CrossFit Aptos Kids is a medium through which you will see your children become the best version of themselves. The tool we use is physical fitness, but our philosophy is that training CrossFit increases quality of life, both inside and outside the gym—children learn to become leaders and successful human beings.
• We will build your child’s self esteem.
• We will provide a safe and positive learning environment.
• We promote the importance of health and fitness for a lifetime.
• We will have a lot of FUN!
