Starting this April, we will be offering CrossFit for teenagers (age 14 to 17 only) at our 67th Street location. These classes will be completely segmented from our regular classes.
CrossFit Teens will follow a specialized version of our Beginners programming, which will develop the 10 general physical attributes trained in CrossFit (cardiovascular and respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance and accuracy). Fundamentals will focus on mastering basic bodyweight movements first. Classes will introduce basic CrossFit movements (i.e. wallballs, barbell lifts, box jumps, etc) as they gain more experience and confidence.
This is a new endeavor for CrossFit NYC, and we do not have all the details on how this program will develop. To begin, we will be offering a free Fundamentals course to the teenage children of our members and their friends and family.
Thereafter, the price will be $199 per month for three classes per week (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, one-hour classes, starting between 3:00 PM and 4:00 PM)
If you are the parent of a teenager of you would like to refer a teenager, for free Fundamentals, here is the procedure:
1. Send an email to Henry@CrossFitNYC.com with the subject “Teen Referral”
Copy the teenager you are referring and the parent or guardian, if you are not referring your own teen.
2. We will ask all parents or guardians to meet with us and discuss their teen’s goals and sign a waiver.
