Owensboro Gym Developing Youth Weightlifters

CrossFit Rugrats isn't your typical gym.

The gym, located in Owensboro, works with kids ranging from ages five to eighteen years old.

"A lot of people think it will stunt your growth, but it doesn't really have too much effect on kids unless they're doing it wrong or they're lifting too much weight," said CrossFit Rugrats co-owner Karina Delgadillo.

"I try to make sure with my younger kids that we keep it really light, and we're moving right."

CrossFit Rugrats has also made a name for themselves in the weightlifting community.

Last weekend, 13-year-olds Tim Davis and Kylie Strehl, and 11-year-olds Mallory McClure and Isiah Boarman competed in the USA Youth National Weightlifting Championship.

The CrossFit Rugrats also took home some hardware, including Davis' national championship in the 13-under division.
