Crossfit for Kids

You’ve probably taken part in our 30-challenge with Personal Trainer Karl Gullö – now it’s time to get the kids involved in Crossfit!  While the classes are in Swedish we’ve always found that when it comes to sports language doesn’t matter and coaches are great about making sure all the kids understand what’s going on.
