Testimonials

Ace (10 years old): I love crossfit! Crossfit gets you moving, exercising and it strengthens your body. I've been a part of CrossFit Illumine Kids for a while now, and the coaches make it really fun while challenging. They have also taught me to be leader to the younger kids too which is good for all kids. I think all kids would really enjoy CrossFit Illumine Kids.

Josh (7 years old): Crossfit is fun! At CrossFit Illumine Kids, they have us do obstacle courses, games and new workouts every week. My favorite exercises are jumping rope, box jumps and now I can do pullups too! Crossfit Kids helps me stay healthy and help me grow muscles.

Francis (dad): I've been a member of Crossfit Illumine since 10/13 and found out that they were starting a kids version sometime in March. I was a little skeptical about signing my daughter up for this, at first, knowing how the different types of exercises the adults do. Also, I wasn't sure if my daughter would like it - she is a girly girl and not one who likes to sweat. But, after her first class, she was hooked. Coach Amy and Coach Shilpi has done a tremendous job at tailoring the program to teach the kids all the basic movements (no weights) while making it fun as well. They also incorporate activities that challenges the kids to think as well. We now have a weekly routine where she teaches me all the things she has learned from class. It is good to show kids that exercise is fun and being active is not a bad thing at all. I am glad I signed my daughter up for this and would highly recommend this class.
