At CrossFit Access we are very proud to be following the CuzImABeast program that is specifically designed fitness and crossfit exercises for kids and teenagers and helps them develop a lifelong love of fitness in a group setting. Children and teens participate in fun and engaging workouts that deliver measurable results and prepare them to be well- rounded athletes. The CuzImABeast workouts consist of constantly varied, functional movements that are delivered in fun well planned game type setting creating fitness that is broad, inclusive and general and scalable for any participant at any level. How do the classes work? No two classes are the same, so kids and teens never get bored and the novelty of each class keeps them excited about participating. The functional movements involve exercises that are fundamental to all things that kids need to do when they play-pull, push, run, throw, climb, lift and jump. All of the movements are taught safely and effectively under the close supervision of thoroughly trained CrossFit Trainer.
“The functional movements involve exercises that are fundamental to all things that kids need to do when they play-pull, push, run, throw, climb, lift and jump.”
When fitness is defined as broad, inclusive and general it means that participants will become well-rounded athletes who will be better at any and every sport that they play because CrossFit doesn’t coach them to be good at just one thing. Our workouts will increase physical competence in 10 fitness domains: Cardiovascular and Respiratory Endurance, Stamina, Strength, Flexibility, Power, Speed, Coordination, Agility, Balance, and Accuracy. With workouts that are scalable, CrossFit can equally benefit a child or teen who is less active or an accomplished athlete by tailoring workouts so that each participant is challenged just enough to deliver measurable results and personal athletic progress.
Meet the Lil Beasts:
The Lil’ Beasts are a group of monstrous rascals each with personalities of their own. Named after concepts of functional fitness, these little guys can be hilarious friends and classroom learning tools at the same time. Check out their backstory below: Lil Beasts live in your “box” (a.k.a. gym), in the little spaces between the rowing machines, underneath the weight racks and medicine balls, above pull-up bars and in the ceiling near the rings. Lil Beasts love to be awesome at everything they do! They want to help you be awesome too! Every WOD (Workout of the Day) you will do with them is designed to make you stronger, play longer, jump higher, run faster and have more energy! The Lil’ Beasts are also very careful about what they eat. Good food will help you be a BEAST, and bad food will make you tired, lazy and sick, like Skeeter the Cheater. There’s a lot to learn, but each of the Lil Beasts is ready to show you the way!
Remember: Live long and strong. Most of all, have fun!
