Many of you have heard about CrossFit, but have you heard of CrossFit Kids? There are classes specifically developed for kids ages 3 to 18-years-old which incorporate the CrossFit workout. This type of workout is meant to be minimalist and I think it teaches kids that they can be active just about anywhere; whether they have a bench or a jungle gym. It’s pretty cool to see kids work so hard and have fun while doing it.
Old Town Athletic Town, here in Fort Collins, offers these classes for children 3-13 years of age. Their program is coached by Kyle Shepard, a certified and background checked CrossFit Kids coach. I’ve seen how excited these kids get when it’s time for their class and really wanted to share the news about these classes.

There are other gyms around town that offer CrossFit Kids. Miramont has classes that are a bit more pricey, but they offer CrossFit Kids on Thursday if Tuesday and Saturday don’t work for your schedule. Readers also shared that Crossfit Endure in Windsor has Crossfit Kids as well as CrossFit North Fort Collins.
Old Town Athletic club is located right on Linden Street. You can check them out on Facebook or visit their website. If you have a kiddo that participates in CrossFit Kids, I’d love to hear about their experience over on our Facebook page or in our comment section!
