Crossfit Kids in Bethnal Green E2

Bethnal Green is the place to be! Especially if you want your kids to develop as awesome people. We have a fabulous weekly class where kids aged 8-14 learn a stack of essential cool skills such as weightlifting, powerlifting, and strength gymnastics. Quickly we include these skills in workouts that build their  cardio vascular and endurance capacity .

Recently we asked one of the parents what they liked about the sessions. Surprisingly they didn’t obsess about how good their child’s deadlift was, or how fast their child’s 400m was or how well they rowed or how many pull ups, handstand walks and ring dips their child could now do do.

They sent us this statement.  They  pointed out this statement  wasn’t original and had been  taken from a post they had seen somewhere, but it  summed up how they felt about what their child was actually doing.

“I don’t pay for my children to  do Crossfit . Personally, I couldn’t care less  about what sporting or physical activity they do.

– I pay for those moments when my kids become so tired they want to quit but don’t.

– I pay for those days when my kids come home from school and are “too tired” to go to their training, but they go anyway.

– I pay for my kids to learn to be disciplined, focused and dedicated.

– I pay for my kids to learn to take care of their body and equipment.

– I pay for my kids to learn to work with others and to be good team mates, gracious in defeat and humble in success.

– I pay for my kids to learn to deal with disappointment, when they don’t get that placing or title they’d hoped for, but still they go back week after week giving it their best shot.

– I pay for my kids to learn to make and accomplish goals.

– I pay for my kids to respect, not only themselves, but other  trainees, officials and coaches.

– I pay for my kids to learn that it takes hours and hours, years and years of hard work and practice to create a champion and that success does not happen overnight.

– I pay for my kids to be proud of small achievements, and to work towards long term goals.

– I pay for the opportunity my kids have and will have to make life-long friendships, create lifelong memories, to be as proud of their achievements as I am.

– I pay so that my kids can be  in the gym instead of in front of a screen…

…I could go on but, to be short, I don’t pay for Crossfit ; I pay for the opportunities that Crossfit  provides my kids with to develop attributes that will serve them well throughout their lives and give them the opportunity to bless the lives of others. From what I have seen so far I think it is a great investment!”

Ww did some googling and found that this has been posted on the internet in other forms, but  no one knows who originally wrote it, but its great.

So with that bit of inspiration chiming in your soul, why not  drop  our  kids co-ordinator  an email and see if you can bring your child down for a chat, an interview and  a look around. There is some more information here

Kids love handstands

Thursday 4.15 saw another fun packed hour as our gymnastic kids, bridged, stretched,  rolled, jumped, and practiced cool things like handstands.
Who doesn’t want a handstand?.
If you have active children and you can get them to  Bethnal Green E2 for 4.15 on Thursdays for an hour of  fun  why not email Matteo@crossfitlondonuk.com  to have a look at the class (whether for this term or the next)
You can see more information about our tumbling for kids course, here
However, if  tumbling and flying through the air, isn’t quite what your children (8-12)  are after,  you  should consider our  Crossfit Kids programme.  Fun, fitness and a load of stuff to learn. Check it out here

CrossFit Kids: Spring Term 2018

Whilst you enjoy a well deserved family Christmas, you probably ought to start thinking about what your kids will be doing in the Spring Term (2018).
It’s a fantastic idea to check out CrossFit London  in Bethnal Green E2.
We currently offer a gymnastic (tumbling) class for kids , and a CrossFit Class for kids. With the spring term 2018 due to start in early January, get your child (8-12) booked into one of our motivating sessions. They can either learn to tumble  (front tuck, back tuck, handsprings, handstands, etc.) in our gymnastic class, or focus on learning lots of weightlifting techniques combined with  rope climbing, hanging or stuff, jumping over, on and in stuff, and generally getting fit in  a fun supportive way in our CrossFit kids class. We can get your child those essential pull ups and box jumps that you know you want them to be have.
You can of course book into both. Parents and guardians are welcome to stay and watch. CrossFit kids is Mondays 16:15-17:15. kids gymnastics is Thursdays 16:15 to 17:15.
Keep an eye open for our holiday camp.
