Kids Classes

Kids Classes

Exercise is important for all ages and stages. Good habits should start early! Our kids classes are designed to teach children that exercise is fun.

We aim to instil in our next generation an appreciation for fitness and health so they lead a healthy and active life.

CrossFit Classes (Cubs, Pups and Teen Wolves)
Every session is different and no two workouts are the same, so kids and teens never get bored and the novelty of each workout keeps them excited about participating. From an athletic perspective, this ensures that no matter what sport your kids decides to take up, they have an amazing level of movement and fitness.


The kids in our programmes will become well-rounded athletes, who will be better at any and every sport that they play, because we coach them to be good at more than just one thing. Our workouts  increase competence in all aspects of fitness : Endurance, Strength, Flexibility, Speed, Coordination, Agility, Balance, and Accuracy. With workouts that are modified to suit the individual capacity and capability, this equally benefits a child who is less active or an accomplished athlete, by tailoring workouts to challenge each participant just enough to deliver measurable results and personal athletic progress.
