CrossFit for Kids & Teens

CROSSFIT KIDS

CrossFit Kids is not simply a scaled down version of CrossFit, it is entirely, absolutely CrossFit. It is designed for a special population and the specific developmental needs of that populations: neurological, cognitive, motor.

The CrossFit Kids program at Real Fitness Sarasota delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing. Healthy living requires that our kids push, pull, run, throw, climb, lift, jump. We help kids perform these moves effectively and safely regardless of whether or not they play athletics. CrossFit Kids builds a strong foundation for a life-long active lifestyle.

Our CrossFit Kids’ coaches are phenomenal! Trained to teach proper movements to reduce the risk of injury, our coaches also HAVE FUN with your kids while they teach, encourage, and motivate them to use their body as it was meant to be used. Your kids will LOVE CrossFit Kids–and you will love the increased confidence and improved self-discipline that comes from CrossFit!
CrossFit Kids’ Classes are every Monday and Wednesday at 4p. Cost is $80/mo (includes tax).

CROSSFIT TEENS

CrossFit is a core strength-and-conditioning program. It’s not a specialized fitness program; it’s a deliberate attempt to optimize physical competence in each of ten recognized fitness domains: cardiovascular & respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance, and accuracy. (from the CrossFit Journal)

In the CrossFit Teens class, teens improve their fitness in these ten fitness domains. They’ll also learn how the body works as they gain strength, mobility and functionality. Controlling the body during performance means they’ll gain muscle control! When body control improves, technique and performance improves.

At CrossFit Teens, we’ll explain how the exercises we’re doing in training translates to their sport–or into their everyday life–so teens know WHY we’re doing them. When that clicks, they make changes and SEE GAINS fast!

We’ve seen great progress when teens join the CrossFit Teens program at Real Fitness Sarasota. The CrossFit Teens program is for athletes of all levels: conditioned athletes, casual sports participants–even bored teens looking to add activity to an otherwise sedentary life. Don’t get nervous that someone isn’t fit enough to sign up–everything can be scaled! On the flip side, don’t think because a teen is already a star athlete, the class will be too easy. We guarantee it’ll be challenging. One more thing: We can say with confidence that the classes will be structured within the Spirit of CrossFit—where camaraderie builds community. So, nobody will be left out of feel discouraged.
Classes run every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 5p. Cost is $133/mo (includes tax).

CHILDCARE

We love kids, and we don’t want childcare to be the reason you can’t make it in for your WOD! So, we offer FREE childcare to members during our busiest hours. You’re welcome to bring your children to use the kids’ room during those hours we don’t have a childcare provider provided they are of the age where they can be left unattended. Childcare hours: Monday & Wednesday 4p-7p and Saturday 9a-Noon
