      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Crossfit Kids

Recommended Posts

My three (10, 8, 5) have been doing Crossfit Kids twice a week at the Lab in PDX since early February. It's a great program and so much fun for them. No Kool-aid necessary. I truly believe it's what made a difference in their climbing at Smith last month. As well as their skiing this season.

 

The biggest change hasn't been physical, but rather mental. They are more willing to give things a go after all the different activities and things they do in class. With my 10 year old daughter there's no longer a "I can't do that." She just gives it a try.

 

Check it out if you've thinking about fitness programs for kids. My hubby was very skeptical. I'm the one gung-ho on Xfit in our family, but after he took them to a class he changed his tune. I'm biased toward the Lab since Nichole is awesome and teaches the Crossfit Kids Cert, but there's another place in PDX that has a certified trainer and the program is up in the Seattle area, too.

I checked the affiliates list and I know there are places doing CF kids that aren't on there, including HEL/Lab. I know there is one somewhere in Seattle area, too, because Nichole was asking me how far I lived from the town (which I can't remember) when they were starting up and I was training with her at a different gym.

Hey Mel, do you ever get tired of pulling on the mule's halter?

Seriously... anti-climbing, then he tries Smiff and likes it.

Anti-dog, until you bring Chaos home. He loves her!

Anti-Xfit, until he tries it. Oh, lemme guess? He changes his tune! He likes it! OMG! :laf:

Luv ya, Kiddo!

Right on all accounts except he was a climber before we got married. Alpine, not rock. I introduced him to that. But he's hot and spoils me rotten so I don't mind yanking on that halter when I have to ;)

 

Luv ya, too, Sobo :kisss:

FYI the latest CF Journal (#69) has a video article about CF Kids. I subscribe to the journal but I think you can see it on the CF website too.
