Iron Kids (ages 4-9): Tuesday and Thursday from 5:30-6:30 p.m.
Athletic Advantage (10+): Tuesday and Thursday from 6:30-7:30 p.m.
We developed this program to build a solid foundation of health and wellness in America’s youth.
We want younger generations to understand the importance of taking care of their bodies and that a little hard work can be fun and pay off.
Why Iron Kids? The answer is simple. Children are contracting diseases that were commonly associated with old age. Type 2 diabetes, obesity, anterior head syndrome and poor posture are a few problems that are now a regular aspect of the lives of children. Many of these issues arise from our increasing sedentary lifestyle. These health issues can be halted or even reversed with exercise and proper nutrition. We owe it to our kids to do all that we can to help them form lifelong healthy exercise and eating habits.
The struggle against our culture’s sedentary lifestyle and the obesity that accompanies it is one that you do not have to face alone. The Iron Kids program at Iron Bridge is crafted to present exercise and nutrition in a fun and interactive way.
The classes are lead by Head Coach and Owner, Shannon McDaniel, who is also a mother of five. She knows how to work with and motivate kids. The classes are high energy and fun, and filled with children of the same age. We know your kids will love this environment!
CrossFit Kids can succeed where other programs fail because the classes are engineered with the special needs of children in mind and they are constantly varied. Your children will be less likely to become bored and disinterested in attending these fun-filled classes. Let us partner with you in the pursuit of your child’s health and fitness goals. Together, we can provide lifelong healthy habits!
Is this safe?
You may have seen the CrossFit Games on television and thought, “Wow, that looks awesome, but dangerous!” The Games highlight the most elite athletes in the world; but don’t worry, your little ones will not be lifting heavy barbells over their heads. Within the CrossFit Kids programming, the focus is on the proper control and movement of the body rather than objects. The classes will be structured around your kids learning to move correctly and using their own body weight for resistance.
What does class look like?
Iron Kids is held on Tuesday and Thursday from 6:30 p.m. At the beginning of class, Coach Shannon will review the programming (or schedule) for the day. The program for the day will always be written out for parents and children who can read, but it will also be depicted with drawings for kids who cannot read. Each class will have skill work, a workout, and a game!
Can I join my kids?
A third opportunity for our Iron Kids members to join a class is during our Fit Fam class on Saturdays at 10 a.m. The class is designed for children, siblings and parents can workout alongside each other. We sell special punch cards for our Saturday schedule so anyone can enjoy a Saturday workout without being an Iron Bridge member.
The safety and security of your kids is a primary concern
Coach Shannon, and any of our coaches who assist with Iron Kids, are background checked and screened through state and federal law enforcement agencies to ensure that only qualified and trustworthy people are working with your children. We encourage parents to stay in our athletes lounge while class is being held. Parents can not only keep an eye on their children, but they can also see what their children are working so hard on during class!
