What is it?
The CrossFit Queen Street Teens Program is a group-based fitness program tailored to the teenage age group. The program will incorporate movements and workouts that develop endurance, stamina, speed, agility, power, strength, flexibility, coordination, balance and accuracy. The goal of the program is to empower youth, make them more well-rounded, and more importantly give them skills to make them better people.
At CrossFit Queen Street we believe that the CrossFit training model and the community at our gym can be used to not only develop health and fitness, but also to develop life skills. We want to make that opportunity accessible to teenagers, specifically those who are willing to put in the effort to improve. This program is a donation based program. We encourage those who have the ability to donate, to donate what they can. Donations can be made monthly or per session. Every month the teens will decide where the money gets donated. While this program encourages donation, donation is not necessary to participate. We want to ensure that every teenager that wants to improve themselves has an equal opportunity to do so.
Who is it For?
This is a program for teenagers aged 13-18. It is for any teenager who is committed, open to feedback, and is willing to develop as a part of a team. These teenagers can be those who participate in individual or team sports. They can also be those who are interested in competing in the sport of CrossFit. Even if you have never participated in physical activities, this program can be for you.
When is it?
Sessions are Monday, Wednesday, Friday @ 3:15pm. To participate in this program we are looking for teenagers who can commit to a minimum of 2 sessions per week.
Where is it?
Sessions will be held at CrossFit Queen Street (221 Queen Street, Kingston, On).
Frequently Asked Questions
What is CrossFit?
CrossFit is a coach led group training program that incorporates a variety of different movements and exercises into a fun and engaging workout. The goal of the CrossFit program is to develop well-rounded athletes.
What is a Class Like?
Each class is scheduled for 1 hour and 15 minutes, coach led from start to finish. Classes will consist of a warm-up, teaching sections, and a workout. There will also be days where we address values and principles that we look for our athletes to develop.
Is CrossFit Safe for teens?
While every fitness activity presents some level of risk, as trainers and coaches, we work to teach our athletes how to move safely and effectively. This applies to teens as well as adults. Our progression for teaching movements is Mechanics > Consistency > Intensity.
Is anything needed to participate?
All that is needed are shoes and athletic clothing to train in, as well as a waiver signed by a legal guardian. We recommend bring a water bottle, however there is a water fountain on site.
Will athletes participating in the Teens program be able to also participate in other crossfit classes?
When approved by a coach, yes. However at that point the athlete would be switched to our student membership. To expedite the process of taking regular CrossFit classes they would go through the On-Ramp program. More info on that here.
Will the workouts be tailored to A sport I play?
Everyday will have a workout or movements for everyone in the session to participate in. Workouts will not be tailored to a specific sport, however workouts will be adjusted and modified when necessary based on the needs of the athlete.
I have Never played a sport or exercised before, Can I participate?
Absolutely! If this is something you are interested in, and you can commit to the program, this could be a great opportunity. At CrossFit Queen Street we work to create a supportive environment for all fitness levels.
