Crossfit Youth Class
Forging the Future of Fitness
What is it all about?
CrossFit offers a positive framework and community to help young people grow into stronger and healthier individuals- both physically and mentally. Working out and eating well become second nature, and they learn life lessons in a supportive environment – discovering what they’re capable of, pushing themselves to work hard and strive for something greater
- Regular free CrossFit classes for the local youth (ages 11-25)
- Regular free try out classes for the local community (no age limit!)
Every Friday 1600-1700 is the time arranged when we put on the youth class.
