The tagline of CrossFit is that anyone, of any age can take part in this exercise program.
CrossFit for Kids is an exercise program designed for children ages 3-18.

Supplementary equipment includes: Gymnastics rings, parallettes, Plyo boxes, Medicine balls, Dumbbells, Kettlebells, Climbing rope and Rowing machine.
Good/Bad for PE
CrossFit can be a good exercise unit in a PE class. If done correctly, it can be realistically challenging, exciting, and grants student attainable fitness.
However, if done incorrectly, CrossFit can be
developmentally inappropriate to certain
age groups. In that sense, it has the
potential to be bad in PE as well.
Where did it start and where can you do this?
CrossFit was established as a company in 2000 by Greg Glassman.
First CrossFit affiliated gym was named CrossFit North and was established in Seattle, Washington.
When starting, an athlete should first learn the movements from a gym(box).
Once experienced and movements are second nature, CrossFit can be done anywhere so long as proper equipment is provided.
This exercise trend has grown exponentially over the last 14 years. While this popularity spike may not last, we feel as though it will always be around, steadily growing. Studies have shown that each year the crossfit trend is steadily increasing.
Will the trend last?
- CrossFit can be a great workout if you know the proper techniques and don't try to over work yourself with weight or intensity.
-If done correctly, CrossFit can be a great workout. CrossFit claims that anyone can take part in these workouts due to their universal scalability and from what I've seen I have to agree. It is great for all ages!
- CrossFit is a strength and conditioning program designed to improve power, strength, agility, accuracy, stamina, speed, and endurance.
