If you have kids, and you’re looking to get them moving and healthy, our Kids program is a great way to do it. LAX Kids is all about FUN. We know that kids love doing things they enjoy, and we want to keep it that way. We’ll introduce them to all kinds of movements, workouts, and games. They will get a great workout, all while having a blast.
Who? Kids ages 6-13. If your kid falls a little out of that range, contact us and we’ll figure it out. As our Kids program grows, we’re planning to expand to other age groups.
Where? Our spacious 4000 sq ft facility. We also have a lounge where you can watch some sports or Katie Couric. Bring your iPad or laptop and use our free Wi-Fi to get some work done.
When? Thursdays: 3:45 pm – 4:45 pm. We’re starting back up for the 2016-2017 school year with one day per week, but we’re planning to add more along the way.

An LAX Kids Class
A class will typically consist of the following:
- Warm-Up – A series of movements and activities to get the kids moving and ready for the day’s activities.
- Skill/Strength – Each day we will either discover a new skill/movement or review and strengthen one we’ve done before.
- WOD (Workout of the Day) – In most cases, the workout will incorporate the new skill as well as others the kids may already be familiar with.
- Game – Once the workout is complete, the kids will play a fun game. Our games are not like other games. We often incorporate the skills and movements back into the game.
Are you a parent looking to take advantage of the hour with a workout of your own? We’ve added Open Gym Time during the same hour your kids get their fun. We recommend you try the CrossFit Lite programming for that day. You can find the day’s WOD at the bottom of our latest blog post. In order to participate in Open Gym, you must have one of our memberships.
