Jason, who runs one of the few Kids CrossFit courses in the Northeastern Ohio area, knows firsthand that this myth is unfounded.
Childhood obesity is a serious issue in this country.
Encouraging our kids to be active and promoting healthy choices early in their lives will instill fit-driven habits for their future.
If you're worried about your child doing strength training, check with your pediatrician to learn more about how safe and effective it can truly be for a child's overall fitness and health.
