OCR (Obstacle Course Race) and Ninja Warrior training is a fun and inclusive way to build fitness literacy in our youth. It is NOT specialized, and like few programs out there, focuses on ATHLETES, not the sport. Our goal is to make your child the best well rounded athlete they can be.
Based on the principles of Mechanics, Consistency and Intensity, OCR Kids emphasizes good movement throughout childhood and adolescence.
Good mechanics translates into physical literacy, enhanced sports performance, and fewer sports injuries for kids.
The program consists of constantly varied, functional movements that deliver a fitness that is varied, inclusive, and fun. It builds upon itself - each child will experience challenges and rewards during every class.
Success is based on individual effort rather than comparison. We'll get your kids in training for life - not a small, sport-specific, skill-set.
The workouts are FUN. Our structured program has a strength component, a conditioning aspect and, of course, a fun component.
Love City Fit Shop. The whole family has been there and always enjoys it. Amanda & Danielle are fabulous with encouraging the kids & showing them what they are capable of as well as making it so much fun. Only complaint is that I wish we had more free time to go there!!!
My 6-year old’s exact words “best birthday party ever!” Perfect fit for my active kid and his active friends! Good balance between structured time and open gym time!
5 Stars! Tried many different activities trying to find the one my daughter loves....and we just did!! Thanks Coach Tab for such as fantastic facility and even better atmosphere. The kids work extremely hard and leave with smiles!
5 Stars! Thanks Tabitha! The kids Ninja class is amazing and already after the second class my (originally hesitant) daughter is much more comfortable trying these obstacles/activities and so proud to show me what she can accomplish! Both my girls said they wish that their school gym class could be this much fun! What a great thing to have such a unique and valuable type of fitness experience for kids and Tab is a great instructor, so positive and encouraging!
At City Fit Kids our number one priority is building athletes. That includes building fitness literacy in all areas. We use NINJA WARRIOR as the venue by which we develop your kids because it is fun, engaging, and builds on all aspects of what fitness literacy encompasses:
We want to give kids the motivation, confidence, physical competence, knowledge, and understanding to value and take responsibility for engagement in physical activities for life.
We also have a monthly NINJA Kids challenge the last Sunday of every month, (with the exception of July and August) to give kids the opportunity to put their skills to the test in a fun, inclusive, and challenging event.
The NINJA Minis class is for ages 2-5 and required parental involvement unless directed otherwise from the coach. The class will be consistent through the weeks as the kids grow comfortable with the games and obstacles. New challenges will be added in a skill portion of the class, but there will be familiar activities for the kids to continue to practice.
The NINJA Advanced Minis class is for ages 4-6 and parental involvement is not required until open gym time. The class will be modified each week as they progress through new games and obstacles. New challenges will be added throughout the class and they will be able to expand their skills.
We have kids come through our doors with all levels of strength and activity experience. That is what we love the most! All of our kids coaches have a passion for working with kids, seeing them grow and helping them push through their individual obstacles and challenges. We provide 1-on-1 coaching and assistance wherever we can and promote an environment where kids help and support each other as well.
We are a community!
Most definitely. Exercise is a great way to help kids focus and have fun. We do require the parent stay on-site during the class so they can supervise and work with their child if required to ensure the class runs smoothly.
With the 2 class guarantee, we can work with your child and see if it is a good fit for both you and your child before any long term commitment.
We typically run seasonal sessions with classes Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday. The session are:
That being said we offer discounted monthly memberships for families looking to do multiple sessions.
We also allow late registrations, room permitting.
Unfortunately all of our classes are typically full and we don't have the ability to allow drop-ins.
We also offer a 2 class guarantee. If, for whatever reason, your child doesn't like the program after 2 weeks, or 2 classes (whichever comes first) we will refund you the remaining classes, no questions asked.
We also recommend you and your family sign up for our Obstacle Open Gym and give us a try. The coaches can answer any questions you might have and you can see if it's something your child enjoys.
We have our Mini's for kids ages 2-4, Standard programs for kids ages 6-11, and Advanced programs for ages 12-14.
We not only base programming on age but on skill as many kids vary when it comes to progressing through the program.
Also, being an inclusive program, we scale the program and work with parents to ensure kids feel safe, challenged and have fun.
Simply put, it's appropriate for all kids of all ages :)
