Starting September 2017!

Special Yanks is a specialized CrossFit Kids/Teens class geared towards children/adolescents that are diagnosed with special needs (i.e. sensory sensitivities, high activity levels, autism, down syndrome, ADHD, learning difficulties and other exceptionalities). Special Yanks focuses on the methodology of CrossFit Kids while taking into consideration the specialized needs of each child who is enrolled in the program.

This class provides children with special needs a fun, positive, safe, and consistent environment to be social and active. Yankee Crossfit takes into consideration each child’s unique and specific needs, along with finding ways that allow each child to experience success. We also encourage our special athletes to become engaged in fitness and play in order to make positive steps towards living a more healthy and active lifestyle.

Yankee Crossfit’s ” Special Yanks” program is a first in the Greater Hartford area. The class is lead by special education teacher and CrossFit Kids-certified Christina Valladares who has had over 10 years of experience working with children with special needs.
