Today's Kids Club did great!
First on the agenda today was a little running, agility ladder and then challenging ourselves at jump roping.
FACTS on JUMP ROPING:
Jump roping incorporates rhythm, memory, cooperation and creativity into one of the best conditioning exercises. The coordination and agility to jump rope are "usually" developed around the age of 6 to 8.
This class is well beyond their age! We went into this just wanting to try it out and we jump roped for 1 minute and low and behold.... EVERYONE got it. Including our newest and youngest athlete of 4, Anna!.
Next we went over the basic movements sharing what we knew with Anna and then we hit the GAME!
Again we thought we'd try something new. Today's GAME was all about BALANCE. Harrison, Harmony and Anna challenged themselves to walk, squat, climb and lunge with a Bean Bag on their head. YUP a bean bag. This was to force posture, balance, and agility. Keeping the chest up head forward with an upward posture. All producing good anatomy. Wonderful Job! This will only follow through on everyday movements to our CrossFit movements.
