Extreme Toddler Workouts! Would You Send Your Three-Year-Old to CrossFit?

Have we all lost our minds?  That was my initial reaction at hearing that a CrossFit gym was offering classes for toddlers.

Do I sound remarkably uncool and out of the loop to ask, what happened to playing in the yard all day when you’re three-years-old? Who could ask for a better fitness plan than that?

After all, I do have two seven-year-old daughters, so It’s not that I lack any recent experience with children. But, maybe I’m just a stick-in-the-mud traditionalist who is not hip to today’s approaches to physical fitness for pre-schoolers.

Some other parents seem to agree it is too extreme, calling it child abuse.  I won’t go that far without seeing a class, but I believe this idea to be the most ridiculous thing I’ve heard all month (I know it’s only the beginning of the month…)

You tell me.

A gym in Long Island City, New York is offering a CrossFit class for toddlers.

The gym holds 45 minute-long, bi-weekly classes for children aged three to five with a monthly membership costing $280

The gym claims that its kids’ classes will help develop memory, promote self-esteem and cultivate leadership skills.

Would you put your three to five–year-old in CrossFit?   Leave me your thoughts in the comments section below.
