What is CrossFit Iceni Kids?
CrossFit Iceni Kids and Gymnastics is FUN functional fitness for ages 3-17 years based in Colchester.
Our programme helps children develop a love of fitness whilst building the foundations for life long skills.
In a group setting children and teens participate in fun, engaging workouts that also deliver measurable results physically and mentally, within and outside the gym. From developing confidence in the classroom, to socialising in the school playground. This gives children a more an active childhood – away from Xboxes, computers and technology.
All kids aged between 3-17 years are welcome to come along. No matter what ability they are, we will tailor the classes to suit all needs.
The small sized classes allows the coach to pay more attention to each individual child, ensuring they are performing the movement safely in the correct way and are enjoying every session.
Based at CrossFit Iceni, Colchester, our classes are run by Head Coach Emma Robinson and Coach Kias Wilkinson-Todd.
Head Coach Emma Robinson
Ever Since I was a child I have loved sport and played every sport you could think of before dedicating most of my time to Squash, Netball and Gymnastics. Training with the England satellite squad for Netball, I was also number one in the county for Squash and in the county team for Gymnastics.
In 2013 I found CrossFit and completely fell in love with the sport, so much so I went on to complete my CrossFit Level 1 instructor course and later qualified as a CrossFit Kids coach. Prior to this I taught children from birth to 12 years, managing a nursery and afterschool club, having gained a BA (HONS) Degree in Early Childhood studies.
Launching CrossFit Iceni kids and Gymnastics in October 2016 I feel so lucky to be able to combine my passion for the sport of CrossFit, with my experience in childcare.
Kias is our second coach here at CrossFit Iceni Kids and Gymnastics.
Having been an avid CrossFitter for 5 years Kias has competed in numerous competitions. If that isn’t enough he is also a Qualified Level 2 Fitness instructor, Level 3 personal training and holds a Level 3 in education and training. We couldn’t be happier to have Kias on the team along with all of the knowledge and passion he brings.
Our goal is to enable opportunities for success. We want our program to help Children and Teens thrive, building not only their fitness but also confidence, camaraderie, integrity, compassion, perspective and ambition whilst creating a positive awareness of health and well being. Skills for life. However above all of that we encourage our young people to try new things, work hard and, most importantly, have FUN!
