It feels like it was just the other day I was telling someone how preposterous it was for Brooklyn to have a Baby DJ School. As a long time resident of Queens, I always defended the borough’s less-hipster-more-working-class vibe. Then I saw the ad for CrossFit Kids Gantry in Long Island City…
No. Just no. Look, I understand that exercising is awesome for all ages. I know there is a problem with obesity in this country, so anyone helping others get moving is a great thing. But can we please not encourage any more Crossfit? No senior citizen CrossFit, no pregnant CrossFit and specially no baby CrossFit!
Take your kid to the park. Bring some toys. Allow kid to play. Voila, he has just done a crossfit class. But if you really have money to spare for some expensive babysitting, go for it. It only costs $140 a month for one class a week.
Yes, for $140, you can let someone show your toddler how to use Beater bar and spring collars, Bumpers, Medicine Ball and Kettlelbell.
