Workouts for kids? With childhood obesity rates skyrocketing, this might be a trend that's here to stay.
Deemed "the toughest workout ever" by Muscle and Fitness magazine, the same workout responsible for the buff, beautiful bods in the blockbuster hit "300" has been downsized into a power-packed, pint-sized workout for kids aged 3 to 12. The idea behind CrossFit Kids is simple: Keep kids moving and make exercise fun. And judging by the amount of tumbling, jumping, lunging and obstacle-course training that occurs in a typical class, your wee one is bound to come back for more.
Moms, what do you think? Are workouts for kids excessive... or a good alternative to everyday play?
