Apparently you're never too young to get your first "WOD Beast" T-shirt. A CrossFit affiliate in Long Island City Queens will start offering classes to toddlers, introducing soon-to-be jacked 3- to 5-year-olds to the world of air squats and bear crawls. CrossFit Gantry is adding the classes as part of their CrossFit Kids program. The kids don't use weights or kettlebells, instead focusing on "colors, counting and … functionality in movement," like learning how to pick up a heavy backpack without hurting themselves. "Children develop and grow stronger by doing no weight and lots of repetition," CrossFit Kids coach Michele Kelber told DNAinfo New York. "For them, it's just like a huge game."
But the huge game does come at a price: two toddler classes per week will cost $280 per month. [Source]
