Oct. 9, 2017 By Staff Report

Crossfit isn’t just for adults anymore.

This month Crossfit Sunnyside at 47-01 Barnett Ave began offering children’s fitness classes dubbed “Crossfit Kids” designed for kids ages 5 to 12.

“Our CrossFit Kids program focuses on developing overall athleticism and proper movement mechanics disguised as fun and games,” said the gym’s founder Michael Seewald.

“Our youngest athletes are encouraged to stay active in a fun, light-hearted environment with workouts that are constantly varied, inclusive and scalable for participants at any level.”

Seewald says that generally speaking, no two workouts are the same in order to keep kids from getting bored.

“The novelty of each workout keeps them excited about coming back each week and will help them develop a lifelong love of fitness,” he added.

All children’s classes will be taught under the strict supervision of CrossFit Kids trainer Chris Kelly, who holds a B.S. in Health and Physical Education and is recognized by the National Academy of Sports Medicine. He is also certified to perform CPR, AED, and First Aid by the American Red Cross.

A punch card of 6 classes can be purchased online for $90 per child (4.5% tax not included), with a 15% discount for each additional sibling that signs up.

The first class is free, with classes for children ages 5-9 taking place on Tuesdays at 4:15 PM and Sundays at 12:00 PM.

Children ages 10-12 will have classes on Friday at 4:15 PM and Sundays at 1:00 PM.

Interested parents that might have questions are asked to contact trainer Chris Kelly at [email protected].
