I have been involved with Coaching Youth Cheerleading since 1998. I am NYSCA Certified through the National Alliance for Youth Sports to instruct Cheerleading. I currently mentor new Cheerleading Coaches that come into the Broken Arrow Youth Football Association (BAYFA)Cheerleading program. My focus is to bring more youth and women to the CrossFit program.
CrossFit is functional. Functionality is a glaring omission from many workout routines that women engage. Ask any mother of young children though, how many times a day they lift loads from the floor or a low position in the form of kids, car seats or laundry baskets. The deadlift and related lifts are training for this type of movement. How many times does a mother squat down during a typical day? Again, the point is that performing functional movements such as squats will only increase the ability to function in day-to-day life.
Women all over the world are finding that CrossFit, the fitness system that involves intense weight training, is just what they have been looking when it comes to toning and building lean mass. It is scalable to any fitness level, quick and efficient, and functional.
