An 11-Year-Old's Journey into CrossFit

I'm a gymnastics coach as well as a CrossFit trainer, and one of the boys I coached has decided to quit the sport and train for other endeavors. I am going to be working with him three days a week and thought it may be interesting for him to keep a log on here. I'm sure he will appreciate any encouragement from you guys as he enters the sport of CrossFit. He is a really great kid with incredible potential, and an amazing opportunity in starting the sport so young.

Harrison is 11-years-old and weighs 80lbs. He has never lifted weights before. Welcome to the journey. Let's watch this kid become a beast.

What a little legend. I wish I knew you at 11 Kevin

Edit - Although when I was 11 you would have been 5 and probably not much of a coach

I am just super excited to be able to give this kid the opportunity. I so wish I had been given a mentor when I was his age.. so much time wasted on silly BS! Mark my words, this kid is going to go really far. He has great enthusiasm coupled with a ridiculous amount of potential. Plus he is a precocious little bastard- super smart . Great kid. So excited to be working with him!
