CrossFit Kids/Teens at EnchantFit has partnered with Rio Rancho Public Schools S.A.F.E. (Students Achieving For Excellence) Program to provide an after-school program beginning in August 2017. The FireHawks Fit Little Beast S.A.F.E. program will introduce the CrossFit Kid methodology to Rio Rancho Elementary Public Schools through an after-school program.
The purpose of this program is to provide a safe and holistic solution for child health development that supports life-long health. We aim to provide an alternative to activities such as playing video games and watching TV, while also providing a safe environment with close supervision by dedicated, professional coaches with expert training in first aid and preventive care.
The program is meant to provide kids with an after school option that will help develop good movement, enhance their sports performance, provide them with much needed exercise they may not otherwise have access to, and teach them about nutrition and healthy eating.
Improved movement and exercise has been known to translate to increased physical literacy and cognitive function, leading to a positive impact on academic achievement in children. This program is BIG (Broad – Inclusive – General) fun, scalable for any age or experience level. We will focus on the functional core movements of life, pushing, pulling, running, throwing, lifting, and jumping.
Our team of coaches are professionally trained in first aid and preventive care. We are CrossFit Level 1 Trainers, CrossFit Kids Certified Trainers, Medical Doctors, Nurse Practitioners, nutrition experts, fitness enthusiasts and parents dedicated to reducing exercise deficit disorder by improving the physical fitness of our youth with age appropriate workouts that are effective and safe.
Initially the program will start at Colinas del Norte Elementary School and eventually expand to all 10 elementary schools in Rio Rancho, alternating schools every semester.
