Coach Kristen

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.

Kristen hat vor 4 Jahren mit dem Coaching von CrossFit begonnen, mit dem Ziel eine CrossFit Kids-Klasse für ihre vier Kinder zu gründen. Während sie Erwachsene in ihrem eigenen Studio im Kongo coachte, erkannte sie ihre Leidenschaft Anfänger in CrossFit einzuführen. Sie genießt es besonders, Menschen zu helfen, Ziele zu erreichen, die unmöglich erscheinen.

Kristen macht seit 11 Jahren CrossFit und liebt die Effizienz des Programmes, die Herausforderung der Varianz und die Motivaion durch die Community.

Kristen arbeitet für das CrossFit Media and Broadcasting Team bei den CrossFit Regionals und den CrossFit Games. Sie war auch die Fotografin für den Filthy 150 CrossFit Wettbewerb in Irland im Jahr 2016 und 2017.
