CrossFit of Ithaca

CrossFit of Ithaca, Kids!

CrossFit of Ithaca Kids is a method for teaching Greg Glassman’s CrossFit to children ages 5-12. Based on the principle of Mechanics, Consistency and then Intensity, CrossFit Kids emphasizes good movement throughout childhood and adolescence. Consistently good mechanics translate to physical literacy, enhanced sports performance and fewer sports injuries for kids. Not only that, a vast body of research indicates that exercise is beneficial to cognitive function, which means consistent adherence to the program can have a positive impact on children’s academic achievement.

CrossFit Kids is meant to be BIG fun for all ages. Broad-Inclusive-General fun. Fun means we provide an active alternative to sedentary pursuits, which means less childhood obesity and all-around better health for our children. Further, the needs of second graders and high-school varsity wrestlers differ by degree and not kind; the program is scalable for any age or experience level and accounts for the varied maturation status one can find in a class full of kids.

Testimonial: I just wanted to tell you how amazing you are and how happy I am that you run the CrossFit kids class. My daughter loves it so much and I’ve never seen her get so excited to go to something. After every class, she makes me take her to the grocery store to get more fruits and veggies for her lunch. My goal is to always build up her confidence and self-esteem while teaching her good physical and nutritional habits. And you have done that and have found a way to make it fun and challenging to her. I am so happy that you do what you do and as long as you teach this class, I will be bringing my daughter to it. Keep up your amazing work :) - Robert Nicholas
