"The best way to raise physically strong and capable kids is to fuel their love of games—and stop forcing them to compete against each other." 

-Outside Magazine, Sept. 2018

The CrossFit Santa Cruz Kids program helps children develop a positive relationship with physical activity in a safe and developmentally appropriate environment. The goal of the program is for children to get comfortable being sweaty and out of breath, and start viewing themselves as strong, active people who are capable of mastering new skills.    

Body awareness and control will be developed as our CrossFit Kids athletes run, hang, jump, pull, skip, spin, push, hop, traverse, climb, roll, throw, stretch, swing, bounce, kick, and PLAY.

Each class will offer a warm-up, skill development focus, workout and game—often the workout and the game will be a single activity.

We offer classes for children ages 4-10. 


Summer is here! Since schedules seem to change weekly during the summer months, classes will be billed on a class-by-class basis from June 19 to August 16. We hope this will get kids into the gym when schedules allow. Class times and days will not change.
