Our KidStrong, CrossFit Kids, and CrossFit Teens Programs are led by Coach Amy. Please email Amy@AshburnCrossFit.com for more information!
It’s been thrilling to watch these kiddos get stronger each week! CrossFit is a great way for athletes to train in their off season, or to increase their power and speed on the field or court through multi-modal workouts. It’s also a fabulous way for kids who haven’t found their sport yet, or may not even like PE, to build a foundation of fitness that will help them lead an active and healthy lifestyle through adulthood. We are about making life long habits and making fitness fun! So if your kiddo is interested, or you are interested for your kiddo, stop by and check out one of our classes, or drop me a quick email!
CrossFIt Teens is beginning again April 2nd! Classes meet Monday and Wednesday evenings at 5pm with me, Coach Amy. Membership is $125 each month.
KIDSTRONG classes have been temporarily closed down. But don’t fret! They’ll be back over the summer! I will be ready to work with my favorite 7 to 12 year old athletes, and watch them grow and accomplish amazing things at ACF! I miss you guys! But we’ll be back over the summer!

CrossFit Kids is a method for teaching Greg Glassman’s CrossFit to children ages 3-18. Based on the principle of Mechanics, Consistency and then Intensity, CrossFit Kids emphasizes good movement throughout childhood and adolescence. Consistently good mechanics translates to physical literacy, enhanced sports performance and fewer sports injuries for kids. Not only that, a vast body of research indicates that exercise is beneficial to cognitive function, which means consistent adherence to the program can have a positive impact on children’s academic achievement.
CrossFit Kids is meant to be BIG fun for all ages. Broad-Inclusive-General fun. Fun means we provide an active alternative to sedentary pursuits, which means less childhood obesity and all-around better health for our children. Further, the needs of second graders and high-school varsity wrestlers differ by degree and not kind; the program is scalable for any age or experience level and accounts for the varied maturation status one can find in a class full of kids. CrossFit Kids is designed to be minimalist; it is inexpensive and often requires little or no equipment, allowing a wide array of socioeconomic groups an opportunity to be physically fit and physically active throughout their lives.
