CrossFit Teens is meant to be BIG (Broad-Inclusive-General) fun. Fun means we provide an active alternative to sedentary pursuits, which means better health for our young people. If teenagers grow up enjoying exercise and seeing the beneifts to their health, they are more likely to maintain fitness throughout their lives.
