CrossFit Kids in the Wall Street Journal: “Cross-Training Even Before Puberty”

The Wall Street Journal put together a positive piece on CrossFit Kids. The article touches on the growth of CrossFit, the genesis of CrossFit Kids, and the relative safety of the program.

On a recent cold weekday afternoon, seven children bounced into Israel Gonzalez’s Brooklyn gym shortly after school, ready to jump, somersault and do squats with kettle bells.

That last exercise is what may raise eyebrows among parents unfamiliar with CrossFit Kids, but to the children, it is as routine as playing tag.
