What is Physical Education?

Physical Skills
Strength
Flexibility
Endurance
Stamina
Infinitely scalable to ability: Everyone is
successful
(motivation) and can learn in a
safe
and
progressive
way (real results)
Improving these skills give us increased work capacity
over broad time and modal domains
We can
DO
more, in any amount of time, anything we
WANT
to do or
NEED
to do

Fitness can be fun and
being healthy is important

class
like anyway?)

The Warmup

The WOD
The Game
Social, Emotional, and Physical preparation
for the rest of a child's
life
Improving fitness improves
more than just fitness
Not sport specific
CrossFit Kids provides exercise that benefits a child's...
The sport of
Fitness
Two questions:
Should schools use CrossFit Kids as
a Physical Education curriculum?
and
Let's start by asking one more question...
Sport-based
Game-based
Basketball
Baseball
Soccer
Football
Dodgeball
Tag
Kickball
...even more dodgeball...
Kids doing these things is good. But consider...
Are your children playing these sports after school?
Does your school need to add another hour of baseball during the day to a two-hour baseball practice after school?
Does your curriculum reach every child as an individual?
Are the "good at sports" kids enjoying themselves while the "not good at sports" kids can't wait to get back to the classroom?
Are your students learning a variety of physical skills, gaining abilities, and fostering a life-long personal value of good health?
...or are they "just getting out of the classroom to run off some energy"?
Go Blue!
The Crossfit Kids
definition of
Physical Education
:
The direct teaching and learning about the
use
and
care
of the body
Use: safe, efficient, effective movement
(mechanics)
Care: Nutrition
How do we teach kids about human movement and nutrition....
(and avoiding things that are harmful)
What is
CrossFit?
Constantly varied
: Many different movements (squat, run, jump, catch, etc.) in as many combinations as possible
Every class is different
Functional Movement
: CrossFit uses the most important movements of the body to increase fitness (Squat, press, lunge, push, pull, etc.)....
High Intensity
: Intensity produces results, increases participation and maintains interest
....what?
because every day, the physical demands
of life are different.
These three things give us...
...in other words...
(pretty sweet)
This is
Even worse, do they stop leading an active and healthy life when they leave your classroom?
So...what should a physical education curriculum be?
Now, how do
KIDS
fit into all this?
CrossFit
Kids
is
because
everyone
is
always
Students
experience
healthy
against
themselves

This is where the students go to
get the "gameplan" for the day
Gets the body moving - fun stuff like animal walks and obstacle courses
Students learn a new movement or practice
a difficult one in a safe environment.
Mechanics - Consistency - Intensity (in that order! Always!)

ay, this is where the kids
put their skills to the test. Primarily bodyweight and gymnastic - never heavily loaded
This is can be a regular gym game, a CrossFit game,
or a regular gym game with a CrossFit twist
is
and
...giving them valuable physical skills and information they will use for the rest of their lives....
...while having
fun
?
Back to our original question.
Research suggests that increasing sport-specialization in children actually
decreases
athletic potential and
increases
the risk of injury.
Obesity and Type II diabetes are currently
the two most prevalent health problems in
children.
combining
fun
with the life-long benefits of
improved fitness
Cognition - A healthy
body
is a healthy
brain
Social health - friends that
play
together stay together
Emotional health - Working
hard
and being
successful
every day is
motivating
Finally, CrossFit Kids provides
But, here's the challenge:
...both of which are largely preventable
1. FUN
2. Rigorous (learning many skills that benefit students beyond the classroom)
3. Create a valuation of health that extends for the rest of a child's life
It all comes down to
students leave
every
class having
fun
and feeling
successful
Leading to
less injury
and
improved
athletic potential
CFKids teaches children
Children receive
CFKids is...
hard work in the gym
Hard work
in the classroom
the
high intensity
of CrossFit creates
lactate
which contributes to the synaptic health of the brain
So...one more question...
Should you use CrossFit kids as your physical education curriculum?
Many answers.
Is the current paradigm of physical education meeting these criteria?
....or is there more we can do?
...in a rigorous yet safe environment...
....because these are the
safest
and
most beneficial
movements the body can perform
All movements, skills, and workouts can be made easier or harder based on a child's individual abilities
This is called "scaling" and ensures that every child is improving in a
safe
,
progressive
, and
measurable
way
and participation is
NOT
hindered by ability
....and participation is NOT hindered by ability level
Substantial content presented and performed with
intensity
helps ensure a rigorous curriculum
and preserve interest - but good movement ALWAYS comes before high intensity - aka, in CrossFit Kids, children move well before they move fast
producing real results and life-long benefits
because every day, life is different
Kids love to compete...especially when fun is the focus and not winning/losing.
