Our CrossFit Kids is a specialised professional program designed to provide the knowledge, ability, and skills which will allow our child to grow and mature instilled with the virtues of an active and healthy lifestyle. As well as playing an active role in injury prevention for children participating in speciality sports.
For kids aged 8-15, this program is designed to both educate your child on the importance of exercise as well as prepare them for sports, make them fitter and more coordinated or alternatively provide an opportunity for those who are not interested in competitive or traditional team sports. It’s also great for developing good motor patterns, balance, and a positive attitude toward challenges. At the very least, we keep things fun and the kids moving.
CrossFit Kids combines gymnastics, body weight callisthenics and weightlifting elements to develop capacity across the ten general physical skills: cardio-respiratory endurance, power, strength, stamina, speed, agility, flexibility, balance, accuracy, and coordination. Additional elements that encourage bone density development, cross body movements and exercises that involve the vestibular system are also incorporated.
Kids are also not getting as much physical activity at school as they used to, which can contribute to trouble focusing on academics, and the retention of that schoolwork. There is a growing body of evidence that says, following rigorous exercise, focus, understanding and retention of academic subjects increase. This is why it is strongly recommended that immediately after a class is done, the kids work on some some homework 20-30 minutes.
“Creating a positive association with exercise and fitness early in life is essential to becoming a lifelong lover of fitness. We teach our young athletes to move correctly, improve coordination, and have fun.”
Developing a positive association between fitness, physical activity, and the joy of movement is the primary goal of our programs. Our Kids classes are comprised of games, obstacle courses, relay races, basic gymnastics, and other engaging physical activities.Contact us

"Having suffered from back pain for years, at first, I was unsure whether the training would be suitable for my needs. Since then, I've made lots of friends and have lots of fun in the WOMEN's only classes! All of the coaches are extremely encouraging and I am always able to modify the training to suit my ability and current level. My body has changed for the better since I started and I am still seeing consistent progress to this day."
Never had I really achieved much at a gym before and neither had I been to one for over 5 years, but what a difference this time. It's a great team that Dan has put together, and what an amazing group of people to train with, someone is always there to encourage and support. If you want to make a positive change to your life this is definitely the place to go.
"Dan & the rest of the coaching team have helped me overcome my fears and insecurities related to fitness. I'm now in my second year of training and I really enjoy seeing the changes and improvements I have made in that time. For me, the key difference between Glevum and other gyms, is the coaching & community. Here nobody judges you, there's a great atmosphere and there is no pressure to better anyone but yourself."
"I had never enjoyed exercise until I tried a community workout at Glevum. Now I get up and train at 7 am every morning, the atmosphere is amazing, the coaches are super friendly and always happy to help accommodate each individual. I couldn't imagine my life without it. The health benefits of CrossFit are just a bonus for the fun I have daily and the friends I've made."
"For me, there are 2 main reasons that separate Glevum from any other gym I've been a member of. They break down everything that we do in the gym, so regardless of anyone's ability they can still take part. These guys re-write the plan every day and ensure you fulfill it to the best of your potential. As a result, my fitness is the best it's ever been. Having others around you giving advice and cheering you on makes a huge difference. This setup changes all that and is a big part of why I keep coming back, week after week, month after month."
"This place is simply brilliant. I've always been someone who frequently got bored of training in gyms except this one. The training is constantly varied and challenging, the coaching is of the highest standard i've ever experienced. The camaraderie in classes is often the highlight of my day and being part of a community of inspiring individuals certainly motivates you to keep coming back."
"I cannot recommend Glevum enough. Since joining in February 2015, my fitness and body composition has changed significantly for the better. I'm fitter than I have ever been, and with two young children I still find the time to attend a minimum of 5 sessions per week. The staff and coaches are professional and supportive and the community of members are all extremely friendly and welcoming. If you want to achieve your goals, this is the place for you."
"I joined Glevum because I was unhappy with my weight, I wanted to improve my fitness and I was ready to do something about it. With the coaches help, the wealth of knowledge, kind approach and structured delivery, I have been empowered to understand, balance and take control of my nutrition alongside my training rather than just dieting. Since joining 8 months ago, I am far more active, stronger, leaner, healthier and happier than ever before. I promise that once you're through the doors and you start your journey you won't look back..."
"I've been an active member at Glevum for over 2 years was made to feel very much part of the "family" from the beginning. This place has it all; fantastic coaching, excellent programming and wonderfully inclusive of all abilities. Great community"
"The quality of coaching and the community at Glevum are second to none. Joining the group classes was undoubtedly the best decision I've made in a long time. You can't help but look forward to your next session. Dan and his team work hard to stand out from the rest, and it shows."
"What an amazing place, I first started training with the help of Glevum in May 2014. The coaches are all extremely professional, helpful and supportive. Like many others, I have never been successful in your standard gym, it's always too easy to not put much effort in or go when you really don't feel up to it, but here you are empowered to work hard because you want to and you can."
"I came to Glevum looking for a change from "just going to the gym". It has been an incredible experience. Having been a member for now over 2 years, I am stronger, more flexible and more explosive than ever. Dan and the team have done an incredible job building a community of like-minded individuals, covering all levels of fitness and abilities. Everyone should and can do it. Excellent work everybody."
"I joined Reebok Crossfit Glevum June 2015 and immediately it exceeded all expectations. The coaching staff is first class, constantly providing guidance, advice, support, and encouragement in all areas of health and fitness. Like most, when I first arrived I was worried of being intimidated by others lifting heavy weights and being much fitter than me. However very quickly I realised I had no reason to worry. Like the coaching staff, the members to are first class."
Best gym I’ve ever been to by a mile! All the coaches are so friendly and knowledgeable and the classes are so welcoming. It’s a fab atmosphere of support that really encourages you to achieve things you may not have thought you could. The coaches are always amazing at supporting you in tailoring each workout of the day to fit your capabilities, whilst still pushing you. You’ll surprise yourself with what you’re capable of in every class, and make some lovely friends along the way! Can’t recommend enough.
"I've tried gyms, I've tried classes, I've tried going it alone, in a vain attempt to get fit, but this is the only thing I have every stuck at and continued to enjoy. It's also the only fitness group that I have felt comfortable being part of. The coaches make you feel extremely welcome and help by explaining everything as it is your first time. I really can say that everyone here helps by making it so friendly, encouraging and welcoming."
