The Kids Crosstraining Program

The Kids Crosstraining program consists of randomized, functional exercises, performed at high intensity. Adjustments are made to accommodate the specific needs and requirements of children and teens. Workouts consist of sets of exercises that have  elements drawn from the above enumerated physical skills, while special attention is paid to utilizing progressions for difficult or compound movements, and progressive loading dictated by size, age and consistancy in form.

Participants often perform workouts with a time component, moving quickly from one exercise to the next in order to create  the intensity needed to develop cardio-vascular and respiratory endurance. Specially designed crosstraining exercises are highly vigorous, such as box jumps, tuck jumps, jump rope, sprints, etc. create aerobic and metabolic changes which positively impacts the body’s capacity for exercise and lays the foundation for all other general physical skills.
