DELAFIELD -- A Delafield gym is now offering CrossFit classes to kids.

The workout normally reserved for adults has been carefully curtailed at Bark River CrossFit.

Mother Laura McGuire says she loves taking her 3, 6 and 7-year-olds to the class.

"Every time they do the class they always sleep so much later I cant believe it," said McGuire.

Trainer Abby Jung is not only working to keep their attention, but also make sure they are safe.

"You would think a 3-year-old isn't much different from a 7-year-old, but it totally is," said Jung. "At this age it's about having fun. We want the kids to know that fitness is fun."

Parents should make sure the trainers are fully certified in teaching a CrossFit kid's class, just like Bark River CrossFit is.
