Crossfit Kids (kind of!)

So the base doesn't have license to do Crossfit Kids, so they do something similar called "KIDS ON THE MOVE!" It is SO FUN! It's run by the Health & Wellness Center, and has excellent coaches there with the kids.

We got there and they did a quick warm up with the kids (ages 4-8 approx) by jogging & skipping around with some stretching in there. They then set up a baseball diamond using cones, and at every cone they had to do a different activity (burpees, pushups, windshield wipers, squats) when the coach blew the whistle they had to either lunge, skip, bunny hop, or high-knee over to the next cone. Then once that was done they played freeze tag! 2 kids would be "it" and would chase everyone else. If you got tagged then you had to freeze in the squat position. You could only leave the squat position if another player crawled under your legs & then you'd be unfrozen and could run around again. After that they had a nice little cool down, stretching & hoola hooping.

One of the coaches thought Layla had done such a wonderful job & was impressed with how strong she is for such a tiny person. &  Layla had SO MUCH FUN!!! She giggled and screamed and ran around having a blast with the other kids. We will definitely be going again as often as we can.
