Helping your kids get and stay in shape is a lot easier with our kids’ fitness classes at CrossFit Eminence in Thornton, CO. Our kid-friendly gym can help instill the positive benefits of fitness regardless of your child’s current skill or activity level.
Little Beasts Ages 5-9
Our “Little Beasts” kids’ fitness class teaches squats, push-ups, pull-ups, climbing, jumping, and even elementary gymnastic movements. These classes can improve physical skills, social skills, and confidence and are designed specifically 5-9-year-olds.
Future Beasts Ages 10-15
Interested in tween and teen fitness classes? We have the “Future Beasts” kids’ fitness program for 10-15-year-olds. As they transition from dumbbells to barbells, we have a strong emphasis on using the least amount of weight possible to provoke a growth response in the body.
Proper form is the number one priority in “Future Beasts.” These workouts are more intense than the “Little Beasts” program and provide more in-depth movements consistent with our adult programs.

Kids’ Fitness Creates Healthy Habits
Children that grow up with healthy habits and lifestyles are more likely to continue those habits into adulthood. Regular exercise can help your child reach or maintain a healthy weight and reduce the risk of future problems like diabetes, stroke, and cardiovascular disease.
Strength, Endurance & Athletic Performance
When children workout, their bodies become healthier as well as stronger, faster, and more fit, just like adults. Regular physical activity helps little hearts and lungs work more efficiently, improving endurance and stamina.
The various movements used in our classes can enhance coordination, increase flexibility, encourage stronger bones, and grow lean healthy muscles. These are traits that will benefit them now and later in life.
Improved Mood, Confidence, & Self-Esteem
A good workout is a great way for your child to blow off steam. Exercise causes the brain to release chemicals that can improve mood. Fitness can also help your kids to feel better about themselves overall.
Your child’s coach will encourage them to try new things and take risks allowing them to realize the full potential within themselves. Seeing improvements in their skills, coupled with positive feedback from coaches, can bolster self-esteem and provide a great sense of accomplishment.
The motivation and support they find while interacting with their CrossFit classmates can also promote and improve social skills.
