Rookies Program

Ages 5 - 9 | 30 Min Classes

Play IS the work of childhood. Crusher Rookies builds the foundational movements of CrossFit at an age-appropriate level. This age is about having fun while working hard.


J.V. Program

Ages 10 - 12 | 45 Min Classes

Crusher J.V. teaches the fundamentals of barbell movements beginning with the use of a PVC pipe. Movements are practiced at light loads. The focus is on building a solid foundation of movement. An athlete that consistently demonstrates good mechanics will begin working with progressively heavier loads in tiny increments at well below max-effort levels.

Varsity Program

Ages 13 - 18 | 60 Min Classes

Crusher Varsity is an advanced strength and conditioning program designed for 13-18-year-old athletes and non-athletes alike. The program combines age-appropriate weightlifting* and gymnastics with high-intensity training to deliver optimal fitness and performance.

*weightlifting movements include, but are not limited to, front, back, & overhead squats; press, push press & push jerk; deadlift & sumo deadlift high pull; clean & snatch; thrusters.

We teach and coach safety in proper movement in a small group setting.


Get an edge in life and sports

Our Youth programs will increase physical competence in 10 fitness domains: Cardiovascular and Respiratory Endurance, Stamina, Strength, Flexibility, Power, Speed, Coordination, Agility, Balance, and Accuracy. Our programs build strength in the body and strengthen the mind, improve cognitive function, and improve interpersonal communication skills.

If your child is already an athlete, our program is designed to take them to the next level by teaching proper mechanics, recovery, movement, nutrition, and flexibility.

If your child is not an athlete, our program is guaranteed to help them establish healthy lifestyle habits and convert them from a sedentary lifestyle to a more active, prolific one.

Crusher Youth Programs are ideal for any young athlete looking to get the edge over the competition in their chosen sport. We aim to create an all-around athlete who will excel in any sport, or physical task life throws their way and help avoid overuse injuries common when children only participate in sport-specific training.

Whether your child is looking for a stand-alone strength and conditioning program appropriate for their age and ability or additional training to supplement their sport-specific training, Crusher Youth is committed to helping them achieve their goals. Our fun and supportive environment surrounded by their peers gives them the environment they need to learn to live a healthy lifestyle.
