This weekend I am busy again attending a CrossFit Kids Trainer Course, so I can begin to help shape some kids in their healthy and fit life. What a great feeling that is — being able to help lay the foundation that will hopefully stick with them as they grow up and out.
I didn’t know I even liked kids until I had them and now — I love to be around them. The way they look at life and how open they are to try new stuff. They don’t have the adult hang ups and if you expose them early to strength & conditioning training – it will stick with them! And they are funny — some of the stuff that comes out of their mouths during class, I wonder how they make it through school! Gotta love it!
This morning – Coach Lori worked us hard, having us work on core work based on what she picked up during this past weekend’s CF Gymnastics Trainer Course. It really does help with so much more than just balance! Getting to really know your core is the key to getting stronger…
