This gym will teach your kids the right way to exercise.
CrossFit isn’t just for the grown-ups at Vogue fitness on Yas Island. Actually, Vogue fitness has launched CrossFit Kids in their gym at Yas Marina, an extension to their adult classes, so the whole family can work out.
The emphasis is on teaching the kids the correct way of exercising. Your little ones are taught gymnastics, cardio and weightlifting in a child friendly way. The class our five-year old attended started with a warm-up involving the children setting up their own obstacle course with the equipment in the room and then jumping and weaving through it.
They were then taught a skill – in this case the front squat – with fun word queues that teach them how to stand and bend. They carried on with cardio, where they ran around the indoor track and then tag teamed sit ups – five times!
The session ends with a cool down activity plus a small prize for the most active in the session.
The classes are split by age group, from aged 5-9 years old and 10-13 years old.
All the trainers are CrossFit and CRB checked as well as ADEK approved, so your kids are in good hands. The trainer was great with the children and was able to handle the more boisterous kids but ensure the quieter, less confident ones were fully involved too.
