Finally... A Kids Fitness Program that Is Fun & Effective
FitRanX Westminster is proud to announce FitRanX For Kids, the first and only fitness ranking system designed and geared for kids!
This is a kids fitness program that is uniquely designed and tailored for kids under the age of 16 years old, and for all fitness levels.
But, you’re probably asking yourself a few questions, and we’re hear to help answer them.
What Is FitRanX For Kids?
FitRanX is a comprehensive and standardized ranking system used go gauging an individuals fitness level, in this case — Kids! FitRanX Westminster, offers an Adult FitRanX program that follows the same format and training philosophy.
This is not a system based on how long your child has been in a kids fitness program, or how much their trainer thinks they have improved. This is a REAL & legitimate fitness ranking system that took years to develop and perfect.
The best way to explain it is that it models the concepts & philosophies of martial arts.
How Does FitRanX For Kids Work?
FitRanX works through standardized fitness testing. There are 8 FitRanX levels, and each level has a corresponding color that represents each level. The levels and RanX colors are as followed:
What About Fitness Testing?
In order for your child to progress from one level to the next, they must participate in a fitness test that uses specific exercises to determine strength within the exercises’ respective muscle group. For example, there are progressive levels of push ups, squats and core exercises that your child would need to perform from one level to the next.
Through scientific testing and years of development, these exercises have been proven to allow your child to demonstrate personal fitness growth in each major muscle group.
In addition, there is testing for cardiovascular conditioning, where your child would need to perform seal jacks, mountain climbers, jump rope, burpees, or anything else required to pass the FitRanX level test.
As your child passes through the FitRanX For Kids system, they earn the opportunity to wear the color of their corresponding fitness level in RanX Band, just like Karate! Kids can wear their RanX Bands at the fitness studio to show their rank, at school to let their friends know what they’ve earned, or just out and about in town.

We Prepare Them For The Future

- The understanding of a healthy lifestyle, including fitness & nutrition
- Realistic & attainable goals setting skills, with the tools and instruction to reach them.
- Preparation on how to live a long and healthy life, as they continue to grow
- Leadership skills on how to lead and take charge of a group.
I Heard Lifting Weights Is Bad For My Child
In a one word answer… NO.
The old saying that lifting weights will stunt my child growth plates was proven to be a myth back in 2001 by the American Academy of Pediatrics.
But, there are plenty of people out there that still believe the busted myth…
By focusing on your child’s form and coordination, while working with free weights and body weight movements, FitRanX For Kids prepares your child to perform at their best and gives them a competitive edge in life, recreational sports, and organized sports.
Best of all, the fundamental movements that your child will be learning during every FitRanX For Kids training session is designed to carry over into everyday life. And, if they eventually begin go grow a desire to learn how to lift heavier weights, they will will have a foundation that will keep them safe for years to come.
