CrossFit Williamsburg's Workout of the Day
CrossFit is our large group, General Physical Preparedness program. It is broad, general, and inclusive by design. We incorporate a variety of training modalities such as weightlifting, running, rowing, strongman, and gymnastics to prepare people for LIFE. The secret to success of any CrossFit program is the community support an encouragement of your fellow athletes.
CrossFit KIDS (6-10 year olds)
Forging the Future of Fitness
CrossFit Kids is the principle strength and conditioning program for many young athletes and the primary P.E. program for many home schools and charter schools. It is used by athletic teams and martial arts schools. Many parents use the program to help their kids grow up healthy, strong, and have a lifelong love of working out.
The program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general and inclusive. CrossFit Kids is not a specialized training program. Healthy living requires that kids push, pull, run, throw, climb, lift, and jump effectively and safely regardless of whether or not they are involved in athletics. Athletics is a specialized pursuit. The goal is to support the specialist, but reward the generalist.
