NorBeau CrossFit Kids

CrossFit Kids is a method for teaching CrossFit to children ages 3-18. Based on the principle of Mechanics, Consistency and then Intensity, CrossFit Kids emphasizes good movement throughout childhood and adolescence. Consistently good mechanics translates to physical literacy, enhanced sports performance and fewer sports injuries for kids. Not only that, a vast body of research indicates that exercise is beneficial to cognitive function, which means consistent adherence to the program can have a positive impact on children’s academic achievement.

CrossFit Kids is meant to be BIG fun for all ages. Broad-Inclusive-General fun. Fun means we provide an active alternative to sedentary pursuits, which means less childhood obesity and all-around better health for our children. Further, the needs of second graders and high-school varsity wrestlers differ by degree and not kind; the program is scalable for any age or experience level and accounts for the varied maturation status one can find in a class full of kids. CrossFit Kids is designed to be minimalist; it is inexpensive and often requires little or no equipment, allowing a wide array of socioeconomic groups an opportunity to be physically fit and physically active throughout their lives

I have been a high school coach since 2012 and I have been doing CrossFit since 2014.  I have come to not only love the constantly varied workouts but the CrossFit community as well.  NorBeau CrossFit was the first group of people to reach out to my husband and I after we flooded in Hurricane Harvey.  They went above and beyond to help us with whatever we needed.  We are forever grateful.

I strongly believe in creating a healthy lifestyle for not only myself but all of the young athletes I have come in contact with over the years. I am a certified K-12 PE teacher and I have been a head coach of both volleyball and basketball at two different class 4A high schools in the area.  While coaching in season and off season strength and conditioning I have put the CrossFit methodology into practice with both boys and girls and have seen great success.  I truly believe it is the best training for all athletes of any sport and any level.
