CrossFit Kids combines gymnastics, body-weight calisthenics, and weight training elements to develop capacity across all essential physical skills, with additional focus on elements that encourage bone density and vestibular system development. Children have a great opportunity to maximize their physical skills when exposed to this stimulus during years of peak development, and the elements are combined to keep children engaged and entertained while teaching them proper movement mechanics and creating a broad athletic foundation. In CrossFit Kids, it is imperative to pair fitness and fun, thus creating a lifelong love of health and fitness for our children.

Jill was extremely active while growing up – she was a competitive gymnast for eight years and did high school diving and cheerleading. Jill was introduced to CrossFit in January 2012 while serving in Baghdad, Iraq and immediately found a new passion. She continued CrossFit on her own until she retired from the United States Air Force in August 2014 with 20 years of service. She, her husband Bryan, and their three girls moved to Wylie and she joined the CrossFit Wylie community in September 2014. In November, she received her Level 1 Certification in an effort to both enhance her knowledge of CrossFit but also to be able to coach and share her passion with others.
Jill knew when she retired from the military that she wanted to work with children in some type of physical fitness capacity to help them develop healthy lifestyles and to associate fitness as being fun early in life. As such, she decided to obtain her CF Kids Certification and is the head CF Kids coach for our gym. She loves what she does and it shows!
