The majority of humans in developed countries do not physically operate at the level at which we were intended. Created to be hunters and gatherers, we are now largely a population of chair-bound, sedentary individuals. Technology and modern conveniences have caused our activity to drop to alarmingly low levels, while our health has declined at a proportional rate. Though physically less taxing, the quality of our lives is suffering greatly. What can we do to counter the ill effects of our “cushy” lifestyles? Hmmm

“Research indicates that exercise can enhance scholastic performance. The Journal of Exercise Physiology looked at nearly 900,000 middle-school-aged children to investigate the link between physical fitness and performance on a standardized achievement test. Six fitness goals were assessed along with math and reading. Overall fitness scores and mean achievement scores rose in conjunction with one another. The more fit the child, the higher the test scores. This suggests a positive correlation between overall fitness and academic achievement.” Cyndi Rodi, CrossFit Kids Magazine

We will be offering CrossFit Kids courses at KW CrossFit. They will be offered Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:30 to 8:30. If there is enough interest, we hope to get an after-school CrossFit Kids program going. This program would have kids come after school and work out and then have a dedicated area where they can work on their homework.
We polled some kids about this program and this was their reaction below.
