Video: Rockhampton kids get in on Crossfit fun

ROCKHAMPTON kids can now get in on the fun of CrossFit, with a new games-based exercise curriculum.

CrossFit Kids is fun for children as well as promoting a healthy and active lifestyle. 

Teddy Tighe, advocate for CrossFit Kids Rockhampton, said the group classes helped children learn about their health. 

"These kids are becoming more aware of their own bodies and why being fit and healthy is important," Teddy said. 

"By participating each week, they are becoming more talkative and confident in their own abilities and attitudes."

CrossFit Kids aims to get children involved and enjoying physical activity. 

Elsie Torrisi said her children had enjoyed taking part in CrossFit Kids classes.

"My kids can't get enough," Elisie said.

"They leave each class wanting more, and cannot stop talking about it.

"The instructors have great passion and engage the kids in so many fun ways that promote health and exercise." 

CrossFit Kids Rockhampton classes run for children aged five to 13 on Mondays and Thursdays at 4pm.
