What is Talon Kids?
Talon Kids (for ages 6-11) is a CrossFit style fitness program geared and designed for a special population and the specific developmental needs of that population. (neurological, cognitive, motor) CrossFit Kids is the principal strength and conditioning program for many young athletes and the primary P.E. program for many home schools and charter schools. It is used by athletic teams, martial arts schools and many parents that want their kids to grow up healthy, strong and have a life long love of working out thus avoiding the common problems associated with childhood inactivity and obesity.
Our program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing. Healthy living requires that our kids push, pull, run, throw, climb, lift, and jump, effectively and safely regardless of whether or not they play athletics. Athletics is a specialized pursuit.
Our goal is to support the specialist, but reward the generalist. The Talon Kids program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. We’ve used our same routines for 4 year olds and elite high school athletes. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs. The needs of our second graders and our high school wrestler differ by degree not kind.
Healthy Nutrition For Kids and Teens Our goal with kids is to get them to think and make good choices about what they eat. We teach very basic concepts; sugar is bad, protein is good—you need to eat some every meal. Nuts and seeds are good fats. Eat them, don’t avoid them. Pasta, white bread, and white rice are NOT that good for you. Red, yellow, green stuff found in the fruit & vegetable aisle is good for you. Eat lots of it. Look at your plate, make a fist, eat that much meat every meal; turn your hand over and fill it with nuts and seeds, eat that much good fat. Fill the rest of your plate with stuff you found in the fruit and vegetable aisle. Fill your plate this way at every meal, don’t eat more.
