Our Caveman Strong Kids program is designed to take the beauty and function of exercise and adapt it to the child’s unique and constant changing needs.
Our mission is very simple: to help children understand the definition of health and fitness by pairing exercise and fun so that they can build habits to last a lifetime. While fun and games are important, our main focus is movement, strength and conditioning. Caveman Strong Kids works at getting kids stronger and healthier by incorporating modalities of gymnastics, bodyweight movements, and weightlifting. Gymnastics will help the children with strength and mobility and vestibular strength, weightlifting will aid in bone density, strength and self-confidence.
The kids classes are divided into different age groups according to their needs and maturity levels.
“Busy Bees” (3-5 yrs) - Class time 30 mins – Kids in this age group are mastering basic motor skills and coordination, like walking and jumping.
We introduce fitness and health to your child by running, jumping hoping and skipping, tumbling and simply having fun. We always start the class with a simple warm up we then practice a skill, do a workout around 5 mins (with no weight barring exercise) and we always conclude with an interactive game.
“Leaping Lizards” (6-9 yrs) - Class time 30 mins – During this stage, children are developing more complex coordination skills.
At this age the kids already have a general understanding of health and fitness. Our emphasis in this group is technique, We start introducing some weight barring exercises provided they’re technique is 100% correct.
We start the class with a dynamic warm up, we then practice a skill, followed by a workout around 5-7 mins and always conclude with a team building game.
“Angry Gorillas” (10-14 yrs) -Class time 45mins
This age group is all about building strength, endurance, speed, skill and confidence: it’s the perfect time to add strength-training especially if your child is in organized sports.
“For parents who are thinking of giving their son a head start on an NFL career by signing him up for peewee football, a better idea is to help him develop into an athlete first.”
-Charles Poliquin (World renowned Strength Coach)
Like the other classes we start with a dynamic warm up which also includes agility and balance and is specific to the daily program, we then practice a skill (planks, handstands, box jumps, hollow rocks) we follow with a lift/strength – olympic weightlifting, squats, deadlifts and presses (they must learn proper form and technique before adding weight). We always finish the class with some conditioning (5-10 mins) and a game.
Getting your kids to eat healthy is not as hard as it may sound. It’s a growing concern, especially in lieu of the raging statistics on childhood obesity. With that being said we will be incorporating kids healthy snack program once a month, scheduled on a Saturday during our regular kids classes.
During these cooking workshops your child will learn about macro nutrients, healthy snacks and why. How to make healthy food choices…etc. Each child will finish the class by making their own healthy snack. Healthy kids = Happier kids, better grades and improved athletes.
The fee for the kids program will be 80.00$ (2 Month membership) per child if the parent is a member to our regular caveman strong classes and 120.00$ per child if the parent is a nonmember. For a two month membership (8 week program).
