New CrossFit Minotaure Website Help Improve Access to Fitness for Kids
Feb 2019 - 2 minutes read
Physical activity is one of the most important pillars of health- especially for growing children. CrossFit Minotaure is fun and energetic CrossFit gym in Saint-Julie that offers all the benefits of CrossFit to adults, as well as children. They’ve been a friend of SimplyPHP since we first started working on their website five years ago.
It may seem like CrossFit Minotaure is just another minimalist CrossFit gym, but it’s actually so much more. Amandine, the owner, and her team of professional coaches all work hard to make sure that the programs they run are accessible to everyone. For adults, they offer training camps to prep for various sports, as well as a regular daily CrossFit program.
Through their CrossFit Kids program, they work with children ages 3-17 on fitness, coordination, speed, agility, and more. CrossFit Kids runs as a non-profit, and all the money from the modest registration fees goes right back into the program. They’ve partnered with two youth centers in Sainte-Julie and Boucherville, to run their extracurricular programs. They also offer a sports studies program to high-performing student-athletes through École Secondaire De Mortagne, a Boucherville high school.
The after-school programs, summer programs, and extra-curricular courses that CrossFit Minotaure runs through CrossFit Kids are all designed to encourage a love of fitness in young children. In an effort to include all children regardless of family income, the prices for their programs are incredibly low- often as little as $10 per class.
None of their youth programming brings in very much money to the gym, so SimplyPHP has been working with them on a volunteer basis to build and maintain their online presence. Their website, which we recently updated, ensures that parents and kids can easily find their courses online. Anything that offers accessible and exciting fitness opportunities to children is a worthy investment for our company. Our continuous maintenance allows Amandine and her team to focus on their young students and give them their full attention and care.
