Ensure your child turns up to the class 5 min prior to the scheduled start time and brings a water bottle. It is suggested that the children wear clothing that does not inhibit their movement and shoes must be worn at all times.
Your child’s safety is important to us. Please let us know of any special pick up arrangements. We ask that you come into the gym to pick your child up, and give us a wave to acknowledge the swap over!
As with all exercise, after CrossFit Kids your child may experience some degree of tiredness and sore muscles. This shouldn’t be a huge problem, as children generally exert less power than an adult would, and will take a break mid-workout if need be. Proper rest and nutrition will aid recovery.
If your child has any injuries from school or other sports, all CrossFit movements are completely scalable, and we can incorporate different movements into the workout to ensure your child makes achievements each session.
Please ask us any questions or concerns you may have! We want your child to have fun learning with us, and we want you to be confident in our program, so will be happy to have a chat.
