On the In2 Youth Development programme, your child will
The In2 Training Youth Development programme is designed to promote fitness and movement for kids aged between 5 and 17. At its core the programme is designed to keep them active in a culture which is moving towards a sedentary lifestyle. Our coaches will teach our young athletes how to run, jump, roll, throw and lift. With our classes being divided not strictly by age, we will also account for physical and mental maturity, to ensure they are working at their own pace and in the right environment.
Our programme serves as another avenue for physical activity outside of PE lessons and sports clubs. We will open the door to learning basic gymnastics skills, conditioning and age appropriate resistance training.
For young athletes who play sport and wish to continue that to a higher level, our programme is a perfect compliment to any sport-specific training. Too often young athletes suffer injuries which affect their development, both as a child and later with ongoing issues as an adult. As children progress they will learn appropriate strength training and weightlifting skills to help prevent injuries, and develop strong joints to help their performance in their chosen sport.
If you are new to our Youth Development programme, we would like to welcome you to your first session completely free, so that you can try it out with zero commitment.
To book a free trial class, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, and include the names and ages of your children, and your preferred class date.
All our Youth Development classes are now sold as Class Packs. Packs can be used across both holiday and term-time classes, and for both Juniors and Teens groups.
5 class packs can’t be shared, however all others can be shared amongst siblings.
Oliver has been attending the youth development classes since their inception. He goes once a week and loves it! He comes out tired and happy, and it’s really got him excited about being fit and strong. He even asked for a pull up bar for Christmas.
It’s the only class that I see the kids properly break a sweat and come out knackered! The exercises are based on what I see in grown up crossfit classes but tailored towards kids in an accessible way. It’s great to see them not sitting in front of a tv or xbox, doing a class that will be a huge benefit to their health and fitness long term.
The ongoing nutritional discussions are also hugely beneficial, educating the teens on how to follow a healthy lifestyle to compliment their strength development. Sophie has grown in confidence and it's evident that Crossfit has had a huge impact on other areas of her sport eg. netball and swimming. I would have no hesitation to recommend Crossfit Teen Development to other parents.
Without a doubt Hattie and Joe's overall fitness and strength has improved. It is the only form of exercise they partake in that leaves them with aching muscles the next day! It has also taught them the value of working hard at something and seeing an improvement as a result. It is also enabling them to form new friendships and benefit from being part of a new active community of people.
I was a bit concerned about them taking part in a form of exercise that is so physically demanding however I have been amazed at how they have risen to the challenge. The coaches have also been excellent at pitching the exercises to the right level and ensuring the children and are performing movements in a safe and disciplined way. The coaches ensure the children have a lot of fun despite working hard.
The youth development programme has given him an opportunity to improve his strength, coordination and overall fitness which transfers over to his sports. Before the classes Riley was not able to paddle into his own waves when surfing, after just two terms of classes he can now paddle out into the line up and catch his own waves unassisted, the improved coordination and strength has transferred over to all of his other activities and has improved his self confidence and self esteem.
The classes are friendly and encourage healthy competition both amongst other participants and with themselves, which often lacks in other activities. The variety of classes ensures that the children do not get bored and are fully engaged. The coaches ensure proper techniques are used when performing exercises and create a safe environment whilst maintaining a fun atmosphere.
I just wanted to drop you a note to let you know how much Ollie is loving crossfit, and what a positive impact the weekly sessions are having already.
Positive role models are so important to teenagers and the team are both knowledgeable and inspiring. Ollie is improving his diet based on their input and is making healthier choices (slightly galling as I've been suggesting this stuff for a long time but I'm not complaining!!).
