What should you do if your child decides they want to get into crossfit?
One of the biggest misconceptions we hear about crossfit is that gymnastics makes a fantastic sport for pre-teens/tween’s to participate in. Being an athlete takes training out of the “fun hobby” category and into serious exercise, providing an opportunity for kids that show athletic potential at a young age to base their education on this real world reality. Gymnastics isn’t something a kid will be good at in a couple years or less, but CrossFit is sure to stay with them forever!

Get gym shoes for cross-training or weightlifting. In a pinch you can use Asics running shoes that have a thicker sole allowing them to provide good support for these exercises. These sneakers should be one size up from your regular shoe size, to ensure plenty of wiggle room and proper toe splay. Run this circuit three times through without rest: Each set consists of 5 rounds with 1 minute of each exercise, resting one minute between each round. Skip the last two rounds and do a five-minute cooldown stretch routine .
