Crossfit am Main Kids pushing the limits

The spotlight is on our youngest athletes this month, as CFAM launches its Crossfit Kids classes!!

The CrossFit am Main Kids (CFAM Kids) program is run by Co-Owner and Coach, Brooke Antcliff. Brooke is a Primary School Principal and has over 12 years of experience working with Primary School children. She is a level 1 trained Coach and opened Crossfit am Main's doors with her husband Steve Antcliff.

CFAM Kids is not just a scaled down or easier version of CrossFit. It is entirely CrossFit, designed for the specific developmental needs of our youngest athletes.

The CFAM Kids program teaches the importance of proper form and mechanics in functional and athletic movements, with a focus on fun and enjoyment. Our program teaches children to love fitness by making it fun and accessible for all kids. Each child is instructed at his or her own level, allowing each child to be challenged, physically and mentally at every class.

CFAM Kids encompassing all ten general physical skills (strength, balance, coordination, flexibility, stamina, speed, agility, power, cardiovascular endurance, and accuracy) and teaches our youngest athletes to enjoy leading healthy and strong lifestyles.

"Working with and coaching such enthusiastic and talented young athletes is a complete joy. I look forward to being a part of the developments in our kids program, and also to see how the youngest athletes in the box push some of our adults to keep on working hard" Brooke Antcliff, Crossfit am Main Kids Coach

This is what CrossFit is all about..

When people ask what CrossFit is or why do you do it, this is the kind of comment I think of, when someone has a light bulb moment if lifts everyone in the group! Even the coach :)

 

"So... it wasn't one of my first goals for 2014 because I thought it was quite a non realistic goal for me, but today I did it! My first box jump ever!!! So one goal down, many more to go. I have left 1 pullup, 120 kg deadlift and double unders for this year. 
So grateful to everyone who supported me and didn't let me give up. It feels great to be part of the CFAMily. "

Notes
This workout begins with the Athlete holding their jump rope with the barbell loaded to the appropriate weight. After 30 double-unders are completed the athlete will move to the barbell to perform power snatches. For the power snatch to count, the barbell will move from the ground (or below the knee if the barbell is unloaded) to the overhead position with the knees, hips and shoulders extended in one line. After the 15 reps, they will move back to the jump rope and begin the next round.

Every rep counts in this workout. Credit will be given for partially completed rounds. You will enter your result by the total number of reps completed.

Equipment
• Jump rope 
• Barbell
• Collars
• Plates to load to the appropriate weight for your division

Video Submission Standards

Click here to see an example of a valid video submission.

Prior to starting, film the plates and barbell to be used so the loads can be seen clearly. All video submissions should be uncut and unedited in order to accurately display the performance. A second person with a stopwatch should be in the frame throughout the entire workout. Shoot the video from the side so it is clear that the barbell is locked out overhead and the rope is passing twice under the feet.
