I managed to get one of my daughters into CrossFit. She likes it, and she has been my partner for most of the last partner competitions. It has been a great bonding experience for us both.
Alas, we have moved, and finding a CrossFit that will allow a teen to workout in an adult class has become a challenge. She may quit doing CrossFit even though I have my own CrossFit setup at home. I have every piece of equipment and can do every move except ring muscle ups. Yet, she does not like to work out by herself. I’ve offered to workout with her, but she won’t.
Our last CrossFit competition may have been our last one. She just graduated from high school with her two-year college degree and is represented by a modeling agency. She dreams of being an actress.
Working out with your daughter in CrossFit is fun and a great way to get them active. While you’ll never win a CrossFit competition with your daughter as your partner, you do it for fun and nothing else. Try it yourselves, and see. The bonds and memories will be priceless.
