Our “Junior Prevail’ers” (5-12 years old) are on the road to becoming “Future Prevail’ers”. The skills they learn are more detailed and will involve light weights. Exercises will include plyometrics, gymnastics, weight lifting basics, running, rowing, & stretching. They will also work on all of the foundational movements like the squat, push-ups, pull-ups, jumping, & gymnastics movements.
Classes include game play & positive reinforcement, as well as a quick discussion of what was learned in each class.
There will also be a focus on leadership skills. As children progress through the program, they will be asked to model movements, lead exercises, & demonstrate an ability to verbally explain exercises to their peers.
In General our Prevail Kids Program will use a combination of skills practice, workouts, & games to build strength & conditioning in all children. The elements included in our classes will be gymnastics, weight lifting, body weight movements, running, jump roping, & more. The goal is to make fitness FUN! It is also designed to get the children interested in being healthy, making good choices, enjoying being active, & learning that fitness is FUN while delivering a fitness program that by design, is broad, general, & inclusive.
Healthy living requires that our kids push, pull, throw, row, climb, run, lift, jump, effectively & safely as well as laugh, work as a team, be confident, challenge themselves, & become leaders, regardless of their age and whether or not they play athletics.
We will also teach the 10 General Physical Skills. These skills are the base for any sport or discipline your child may pursue.
- Cardiovascular Endurance – Can you get enough oxygen to your body?
- Stamina – Can you get enough energy to your muscles?
- Strength – How much can you lift?
- Flexibility – Can you touch your toes?
- Power – How much work can you do in the least time?
- Speed – How fast can you go?
- Coordination – Can you pat your head and rub your stomach?
- Accuracy – Can you kick a soccer ball into the net?
- Agility – How quickly can you change direction?
- Balance – Can you stand on one foot? With your eyes shut?
In addition to learning new skills, you will notice that your child will make better food choices, become more focused in school, transition to new sports easier, and will have a reduced risk of sports-related injuries.
Hands Down ~ You will see your child have an increased ability to learn & succeed in all areas, including other sports, once they have a base in CrossFit!
