The 2018 CrossFit Games BOKS Kids Area Experience
This past week, our BOKS team had the incredible opportunity to travel to Madison, Wisconsin to attend the 2018 CrossFit Games!
The CrossFit Games brings together some of the fittest people on earth including fit families and kids.
A large part of our visit entailed talking to parents and the general CrossFit community about BOKS’ mission and how we aim to bring more opportunities for movement to kids across the globe. We were able to share our message with almost 500 families, and as a result, get more schools enrolled in our program!
During the games kids got the opportunity to try BOKS classes first-hand and run through obstacle courses designed to bring more physical activity into their day. We also held daily burpee challenges, encouraging kids to try and beat the week’s record of 35 burpees in one minute.
Not only did we have a great experience spreading awareness about the BOKS program but we lovedwatching the CrossFit athletes compete. We were especially inspired by the athletes in both the Teen and Masters age group divisions. These individuals truly showed that fitness has no age limit. We hope that more people take a page out of their book and don’t see age as a limiting factor, but rather, a motivator to be fit for life.
