Ninja’s in Training!
Working with kids is like woodworking or sculpting: if you want the final product to be beautiful, you must take your time.” – Jeff Martin, Founder of CrossFit Kids
Designed to be fun!
Our goal at CrossFit Oahu Kids (CFO Kids) is to create a safe, positive and fun learning environment that allows your child to be challenged and motivated to want to come back. CFO Kids program is all about linking fun to fitness. If kids enjoy physical activities, they will continue to be active for their lifetime. Our ninja\’s learn how to use weights safely, how to think differently about foods and how to play with other kids in a positive competitive manner. All CFO Kids classes are lead by a CrossFit Kids Certified Coach. Crossfit Oahu is also a recognized CFKids facility by CrossFit Kids HQ.
At CFO Kids, Kids are the focus. They already have their own community of “workout” friends if they have been coming with you to the gym. CFO kids classes allows them to build upon that community where kids go to classes because that\’s where their friends are and they start to take on a crossfitter\’s outlook on the world. Suddenly climbing a flag pole is not impossible; it\’s just what they do.
Kids have a lifetime to learn and at CFO Kids, we have a strong foundation for learning proper mechanics before loading up the weights. We also are very careful to correct kids in a positive manner so that they want to come back to our classes. It\’s okay for your kid to “worm up” when doing a push up as with every work out we will show them the correct way to do a push up. Eventually over time, they will know how to control their growing bodies and perform a push up to the adult standards; it just doesn\’t need to happen in one day. We know that kids think differently than us adults. Our movement “cues” are tailored to ideas that kids can understand. And the question that we will ask at the end of every kids class is “did you have fun today?”, we love it when your child leaves sweaty and exhausted but still has a smile on their face.
