Rope swing free play timeKids these days are really busy. I’d even say they are over scheduled. So, it’s no surprise to me that when I introduce a new parent to CrossFit Kids their concern is their child is too busy already. I’m all for kids playing sports as I think sports are important. I’m also for kids being involved in other activities besides sports like music and art. Each child has a special way of expressing themselves and phyiscal activity/sports might not be it, but every kid should be given the opportunity to try. What I’m getting at is that sports are great but keep them in moderation. I’m not saying you should limit how much physical activity your child gets, they can really do as much as they like. If you have a child that is specializing in a sport at young age they run the risk of getting a repetitive use injury. These can be prevented with proper rest and good strength and conditioning (Try CrossFit Kids) Check out this article in the CrossFit journal about injury prevention and how CrossFit can help!
