THE EXPERT AT ANYTHING WAS ONCE A BEGINNER
The Skwäd (Ages 6 – 12)
A custom fitness program we’ve created for children, “The Skwäd” teaches the importance of teamwork as kids grow and move on to other sports and exercise. The focus of each class is on how well your child moves, not how much or how fast. Every class is loaded with age-appropriate excitement coupled with learning the basic functional movements. We want to see your kids grow in strength and skill as well as in confidence and character, and above all have fun!
Big skwäd (Ages 13 – 18)
Our Teens program is a strength and conditioning class developed specifically for the teenage-“ish” age range and is always scalable based upon your teen’s ability. We teach our young athletes to move correctly and because the workouts are constantly varied, your teen is less likely to fall prey to the overuse injuries that plague common training routines and year-round sports. CrossFit Punta Gorda can help any high school athlete improve his or her speed, coordination, strength, and endurance.
What to Expect
Our Skwäd programs help children and teens develop a positive relationship with physical activity in a safe and developmentally appropriate environment. The goal of the program is for kids to get comfortable being sweaty and out of breath, and start viewing themselves as strong, active people who are capable of mastering new skills.
Body awareness and control will be developed as our Skwäd athletes run, hang, jump, pull, skip, spin, push, hop, traverse, climb, roll, throw, stretch, swing, bounce, kick, and PLAY.
Each class lasts 45-50 minutes and offers a warm-up, skill development focus, workout and game—often the workout and the game will be a single activity.
